Yes, I'm a newb with some of this stuff...sorry . So, I just bought the Pro Taper bars as it seems they would be easiest to install...Well, not for me...LOL. Two questions...1. The numbers on the ends of the bars seem to indicate where you would maybe cut the bars to match the stock length of the exsisting bars? Is that right? Otherwise, it doesn't seem that the cables will be long enough without getting new ones. Seconds, I'm assuming that I have to cut off the stock grips and get new ones?
Thanks for the patience guys. I went up one tooth on the front sprocket and it has made a huge difference on the street!!!
Had but regrettably sold a 1982 KZ1000R Eddie Lawson Replica
I have the ProTaper bars on both my TW's and with a little rerouting of the cables they work just fine.I like the added width.
Stick the tube under the grips and spray some WD-40 in there and they will slip right off.

Man, you guys are awesome...thanks a lot! If I can figure out how to get a picture on here, I'll upload one...
Ok..DONE! The WD-40 worked like a charm. I had to drill a couple of small holes into the new bars since the throttle and one other part had a small 'plug' to fit or be placed at a certain angle...no problem. Re-routing the cables took a bit of thinking, but all done. The new bars look and feel great. Thanks everyone!
It is nice to have you report back on your success.
Hey Brian, can you tell me how to post a picture? In other forums that I go to, you simply hit the 'insert image' link and find it on your computer. Seems this site is different?
