Grips Question

I just bought a set of drag TT bars and was wanting to know a cpl things...

1. Will the Vulcan 800 controls fit the 750/700's? (Mainly wanting these because they make chrome switch covers for the 800 and I cannot find any for the 750's) I believe the new bars might be Highway Hawk square drag bars like what BMan described his old setup in previous post.

2. With running these new bars if the other controls will not work would I still have to run the Goldwing ISO grips on the new bar setup?

I have the same type of bars installed on my VN750. Assuming that you have the 7/8 inch in diameter type bars, 'anything' with the same diameter should work

PEACE!!!

X2. ^^^^^ Anything designed for 7/8 bars should work.

I believe the VN800's are 1" bars. If I'm correct then no they wont work but dont take my word for it, do some research first. Those are the same Bars that I have and alot of folks are looking for them so if they arent gunna work out for you, you can dump them off on here easily enough.

the ones I just bought are 27 3/4" wide x 3 1/4" pullback x 6 1/2" rise x 5 1/2" center width. Should fit right around the tree's and should look rather sweet on there.
