Fair Price for install of chrome front end and new bars

What would a fair price be for installing chrome sliders and new handle bars? What did you pay?

At a dealer?

At a Private shop?

Thanks for any feedback

I have never done fork sliders but I have done handle bars on my EGC and just recently on my RGU and it was a simple job and if it cost more then $50 I would do it yourself. Seriously if you can change oil you can change the handlebars especially on the TBW.

Bars and sliders

Agree, the Bars would be relatively simple... the sliders I will leave to my mechanic Randy.

$80 + tax for a jack and do it yourself. It's very simple and takes about 3-6hrs total depending on your skill level and type of bars.

Hey Hutmo, sorry I should have been more specific on what I paid for. I did my bars with a buddy in his garage. I paid $140 for the slider install.

Come on Hut - you can do it! Hell, I'm an old twiddle-thumb and I did it. Just need a manual, some tools (may have to buy some), and about 8 hrs. I've got all the videos and 'how to's' to get-r-done. Then you'll be proud of what you accomplished. We're here to help and support ya.

It's a pretty big job. If nothing goes wrong it should take at least a few hours. You also need to replace your fork oil. The dealer will probably charge $80/hr for a 5-6 hour job. I've done it twice and had minor blips both times. Once the bolt was frozen and it took me over an hour to get it off. Then I had to find a dealer who had one in stock and replace it. It was a very long day!
