Biltwell Frisco bars

Hey there,
Was wondering if anyone on here has swapped the original bars for the Biltwell Frisco bars. Don't like the way the stock bars make your wrist bend so much. If anyone has used the Frisco bars, did you have to change cables or anything like that and what did you think of em?

I ordered the Frisco bars. they are 7 inch rise. That's about 2 inches less than stock I believe. I just hope that won't make any of the cables too long. Can you just reroute them if so?

Yes you can reroute them. The clutch cable is usually the one that causes the most problems. Make sure the "free play" doesn't change (much) when moving the bars from full left to full right.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I got the new bars on and everything seems to be working just fine. I am however gonna order a shorter clutch cable in the near future only beacause I don't like how much sticks out by the bars. it sits pretty much in front of the speedo now.
