Handlebar swap

Just swapped out my standard bars for the Bobber Black ones. Took my time and did everything methodically - even with heated grips it wasn't too difficult. Really pleased with the results and the black cable ties are not so noticeable.

Ordered keystones. Should be in today or tomorrow. Test fit and if I like it probably gonna need them installed by a shop as Iíll need to lengthen some cabling. Probably will do internal wiring if I can at this point as well. Might as well right! Haha

Probably be cheaper and quicker to just have the stock bar powder coated

I installed some keystones myself with only my stock cables. Because the brake cable was too tight I didnít like the angle I had to set them at. Smart call having them professionally installed and internally wired. Theyíll look great. I traded my Keystones in for a set of black Biltwell mid trackers. They are just slightly taller then stock bars. Iím going to install on Saturday and will follow up with pics

Yea I think it was you that made me decide on those. I wanted something just a little taller especially now with the forward controls and they looked pretty sick on the bike. The apes are just way too much. But yea after hearing you say that I figured thatís what Iíd do.

But thatís good to know that maybe AJ will only have to redo the brake line and nothing else.
