What extra steps aside from a normal bar swap did you have to do? I originally bought these in February for my Bobber Black, but my dealer tech gave me such a hard time about all the extra drilling and fitting he'd have to do in order to make them work, and said the Triumph Barrel grips I bought wouldn't fit as nice and same with the mirrors.... Was he just full of it? Or did you have to do some fab. work?

Thanks! Looks phenomenal!

You need a long cable kit (Triumph)
You have to drill a small hole for the location of the controls and away you go.
You can use the original mirrors but I decided to have the controls flush with the end of the bars and fit Highsider Montana mirrors from Bikermart. They arrived the next day.

Again Bike Bros tool bags mount on these. I took them off to clean the bike.

Awesome, thanks! I might just look into these again over the winter.

Forgot to mention - you do need to drain and remove the tank √

They look very cool! Obviously wider, but do you feel any other difference -- more pullback, higher, or the like..?

They definitely feel different to ride with. Cornering with arms spread feels good to me. Manoeuvring is 'different'.
