    You will need to file the nubs off the throttle housing and brake or drill holes in the bars. Takes five seconds with a dremel. I suggest filing so you can adjust them where you want.



    The windshield is only for the cold winter days. I have a jimbo shield on her now.

    Its actually the kill switch/starter housing and the throttle housing that have a nub on them that goes into holes in the stock bars to keep them in place. If you want, you can keep them on and drill holes in the new bars for them to sit in but it is easier to just file them off. Others and I have had no problems with them moving/rotating as long as you tighten them back up upon installation. Easy job, nothing to worry about. The only tedious task is rerouting the throttle cables. It took me about an hour to relocate all the stuff I had on my bars to the new bars.



    This is the order that worked best for me- brake lever, kill switch/starter housing, throttle, clutch mount, lightswitch housing, grips and brushguards. I then added my random stuff like the 12v outlet, ram mount and windshield hardware. Hope this helps your transition to new and better bars a smooth one.

    next question. are the stock cables for brake clutch throttle and kill switch long enough to mount on the pro taper bars





    how much higher are they than the stock bars? I need them to be 2-3 inches higher on the ends

    Everything is long enough. Throttle cables need to be re-routed to the front. And I am sure you will be pleased with the increased height. Not sure about the exact height difference but it is around 2-3. Dont worry about it, you'll love em'.
