Thinking about new Bars

Hello all I want to replace my bars on my bike but dont want to spend 2 much time cutting and splicing the wiring harness to do it. and suggestions on bars you have put on so i can save my self time in choosing.

I want to go lower and more out on the sides.

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

well there is a lil slack in the wire harness... not too much, so you arent gonna be able to do ape hangers with out splicing.... i think there are some on the yahoo board that got some drag bars, and used 1.5" risers to clear the tank... i am sure someone else will chime in with more details.... i am still on the back of my bike, the front will be next winter....

Rember we have 7/8 bars. If you get 1" you will need all new controles and that will get pricey.

Most quad runners and dual sport bikes use 7/8 bars, search using one of them will give you a lot of options. As long as you go lower as you go wider, cable length shouldn't be a problem. The bars I have on my bike came out of a box of dirt bike parts. I tried three different ones before I found a set that "fit" me.

I'm curious to see how they look.
I'd thought about changing the bars before, but the stock ones seem to fit the look of the bike pretty good.

Here's to a easy change for ya

Thanks for the happy thoughts

I went home for lunch and met the UPS guy.

I unpacked the bars and did a quick fit test by holding them in place and they are perfect!!!!

Probably wont install them tonight got a call to install a printer . (At least this will pay for the bars)

Will post pics!
