Money, do you see the little loopy wires that hold your cables by the key ignition? Cut that ship out with a grinder to give your cables some slack.

Finished Product!!

Tools needed:

- Motorcycle jack or something that serves the same purpose (suggested)
- 10mm socket/ratchet
- 19mm socket/ratchet
- blunt force hammer (rubber, sand-filled mallet helps remove/install controls and saves your paint/metal)
- WD-40 (lube the bars to help remove/install controls and grips)
- Angle grinder (suggestion. I used it to cut open the existing routing brackets to pull out the cables/lines)
- 5mm Allen wrench (in a set, with lots of leverage that will also be able to fit in smaller spaces)
- (2) Size 2 phillips screwdrivers (One will be regular sized, the other will be stubby
- Small flat head screwdriver (for opening clips to release the cable/lines)

I think that is it. If I think of anything else I used then I will add them.



Here's a few comments/suggestions:

The first 1.) Make sure, before anything else, that you have at least a good 6 pack of beer within reach. You're gonna need it!

1.) The theory that you can add 12" bars w/ up to 2" risers is fact.

2.) Save yourself some time and frustration and buy at least a new brake line..4" longer is plenty. If you're not very logical with your DIY projects, then you should save up a little longer and pay your dealer to do it.

3.) The other cables will work but you need to remove them from the zip ties that are connected to the bike up to, but not including, the first zip tie under the gas tank. Exception - throttle cable. All the cables will need to be routed through the handlebars as shown the pics of the other posts. If the cables are long enough to route through the given brackets by the ignition cover then use them, this will help reduce the chances of them getting tangled or pinched.

4.) Have a partner. Getting the correct spacing between the risers will require a second hand when installing the bars/risers/bolts. If not, then you will risk dropping the bars and causing damage to your bike....or even worse, your ego!

5. Have a plan of attack before you start. DO NOT BE IMPATIENT. Being impatient will cause you to install and remove the parts way more than you already have to.

6. Cover your front fender and tank with a thick cloth blanket or towel like i did...if you do not then you will scratch your paint pretty bad, like i ALMOST did. The bars are light but not that light.

If you have any other questions, please ask before you do anything stupid!!!!

Have a beer for me

I cut out a slot to pull out the necessary cables. I left the 'loopy wires' there for future accessory cables.
