BC straight pipes, Biltwell bars and grips

Last week I was able to make some modifications that I had really wanted to do. I installed the British Customs straight pipe performance tips. Really gives a much deeper rich sound, plus I love the drag style. At idle not a very significant difference, but when you lay on the throttle it definitely letís cars around you know youíre there. I also swapped out my stock bars and grips for Biltwell trackers and Kung fu grips.

Those Biktwell bars look great. I assume those are the 1 inch Biltwell High Tracker, correct. Thank you.

I've been looking at the highs recently. How much pull back did you get from the mids and did you buy the dimpled or non dimpled (I know the difference is important for running these on a sporty but not sure if it matters for the Bobber).

There is a 2.75 inch sweep on the mid Tracker, and the rise is around 3.25 inchís. Really the mid Tracker is very similar to the stock bars. On the Biltwell website they show the high Tracker as a 2.5 sweep, and a 4.5 inch rise. I think that height is a subtle difference over the mid... but probably very comfortable. I had 2 inch risers on with the stock bars and the height was perfect, but it looked cluttered. I think the high Tracker will accomplish the same height as the risers, but with a clean look. Non dimple handle bars work great for the Bobber. If you install them yourself you will have to remove the small plastic post thatís located on the inside of the clamshell on your break side. Might sound confusing, but youíll see exactly what I mean when you take your old bars off. Thereís a little post it goes inside of a hole that they have pre-drilled on the stock handlebars. From what I understand itís just for ease of assembly. I cut that little plastic post off as thereís no pre-drilled holes in the Biltwell bars, or really any other aftermarket bars for that matter. Thereíve been no problem with removing it, and if you take it to the dealership I believe thatís exactly what they will do to install them

If you remove that 'tit', you can roll H/bars & still place levers to suit your preference.

I'll most likely .easure out the fitment and drill a small hole for it to fit more securely. Haven't played with them yet but the plastic boxes don't feel like they would be all that secure without some sort of lock into the bar.
