    here it is unboxed at the house



    stock setup



    removing clutch



    removing brake and kill switch



    disassemble throttle to reroute



    throttle innards



    complete



    to reroute throttle cable to right of forks, remove this bolt

    Those bars are great. They give you a good riding stance.

    You'll like the taller bars. If you have a compressor, you can actually move everything including the grips from the stock bars onto the new bar without much trouble at all. Use compressed air under the inside edge of the left grip and it will slide right off. Loosen the controls enough to let them move freely, work the old bar left and right and simply slide the controls off, and then reverse the process to slide the controls onto the new bars. Use the compressed air to "float" the left grip onto the new bar. Easy to do and quicker than completely taking everything off and re-installing. There are some nubs on the brake reservior that need to be removed if you don't drill holes in the new bar. Nub removal gives you the most flexibilty in positioning the controls. Worked for me.

    Wd-40 sprayed under the grips will make it easy to remove the old grips. Hairspray can be used as grip glue but takes a few hours to dry. Grip glue works great but you have to work very fast.

    i agree with these guys...as far as removal goes, compressed air if you have a compressor is the way to go so you don't have wd40 on your throttle tube but wd40 works as well...i wouldn't use wd40 if you plan on reusing your grips though, pain to wipe out...as far installation, spray on the hairspray and just slide them on and like PalmStateCrawler said just give them plenty of time to dry...do it on a hot sunny day if you can and just let it sit in the sun...i put on all my mountain bike grips with hairspray and they have never moved

    going to start this when I get off work. one question. is it possible to change these without rerouting cables? or are they long enough to accommodate the extra 2 inches of height?

    Throttle cables have to be re-routed for left turns. If you don't ever turn left, you could get away with not re-routing Everything else should be fine.
