Need help w/bars
So, I've searched the posts on handlebars/grips and found lots of great info, but no clear answer to my questions.
My wife would love to change her bars to a more "beach-bar" style like the 900's. What have all of you done?
1. Is it easiest to keep a 7/8" bar (Like the flanders) and buy the more limited number of accessories available for them (Specifically the grips)?
2. If I go 1" (drag bars most likely) can the switch boxes be hogged-out to fit the 1" bar? (I have a lathe and mill, so doing the actual work is no prob.)
3. Are there any other issues I am not considering in swapping bars (other than the switchboxes, cable length, wiring, etc.)?
I have seen some great installs in the gallery and look forward to the advice of the 'sperts. Thanks in advance.
