BR Custom Bars

First - Thanks to Murlsquirl, Tail 11, Dirtbag, Reficul, and Glide 72 for all of their input on their BR Custom Bars over the last couple of weeks. I have been looking at bars for weeks to replace the stock bars for my 2012 RCG. I have had the wife with me out measuring / re-measuring....

I just spoke with Bill this morning and ordered a set of gloss black New Wave 2 bars:

1 1/2 bars
Rise: 10"
Width 32"
Pullback: 9"

I previously ordered a CVO TBW kit (32310-08) to eliminate the "green TBW connector". Based upon feedback, should not need any new cables or wire extensions. Wait time (estimated at 6 weeks) starts now.

Thanks to all for your help. I will post pics when they arrive.

Parts accumulation begins. I ordered 18" front and 16" rear black ice Airstrike (stock) wheels, a set (front and rear) of black composite Lyndall triangulum rotors, along with their gold pads. I have received the CVO throttle control referenced by Donk, Carl Brouhard foot boards and heal / toe shifter. Still waiting on Yaffe fork sliders, Yaxle, and engine guard eliminator.

Update:
It's been 4 weeks since I ordered the bars............. Wheels are in !! Also broke down and bought the wife a new Deluxe...........

Dropped off the bike to get started on the build - in week 6 - still waiting on the bars. The guy who is doing this said I will certainly need an extended clutch cable? These are 10" bars - really?
