Thanks to zman and hit KW +2s

I ran across a post where zman was getting rid of his KW bars. I had been in the market for bars, but didn't know (without having some made) which bars to go with. I had never seen the KW +2s, so when I saw his, I knew I found them.

zman and his wife went way on and beyond to get me these bars, from KS to WA as fast as $$ possible. Friday of last week, he found the solution. Yesterday (tuesday) afternoon they arrived. I couldn't be happier. Its a bit to "middle of the night" to take it out right now, but as soon as I can, I'm getting this thing out and see just how it rides.

pics coming tomorrow.

Thanks a million z,
draino

slight pullback sure is comfortable, and a nice break from the rigid lines of some bars

the install was pretty smooth. had to go inside and make some slack in the wires. Notched the gauge cover for the brake line (so didn't need to get a new one), ran the clutch cable a different route and sur'nuf, its like they were made for it.
