Installed: Factory 47 14in Signature Bars!
I finally was able to get my bars installed onto my RGS. The dealer quoted 6+ hours of labor so I decided to tackle it myself. Please keep in mind my mechanical experience goes as far as bolting my own pipes on, changing the A/c and installing a tuner...so it is limited.
The whole process took about 3.5 hours, hardest part being the re wiring of the bars. The 14in bars do NOT require any wire extentions. With that being said it is still a tight fit, and the cables are a pain in the @ss to get through because of the sharp 90 degree angles.
Also to get the clutch side grip off, most say you have to cut it off, however I soaked it in boiling hot water for 45 minutes and it slid right off. Just an FYI.
I'm here to hopefully answer any questions folks might have about the install and the bars. I live in MA so yesterday it was 28 degrees out, and I took it my bike for the first ride of the season - fired right up after being on a battery tender all winter. I finally was able to get some throttle therapy - enjoy the photos!
