Non internal wired question

I was going to mount my new Wild1's 12" bars and wire them internally, however, riding season is now here and I'm thinking of just mounting them without doing the internal wiring till next winter.

There is a wealth of posts here on internally wiring and changing handlebars, but nothing I can find on a straight swap??

Is there anything special I need to know to just swap out the bars and leave the wiring on the outside of the bars?? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Why do you say that?? I can't see any reason that I can't run the wires externally?? Please explain? Thanks

With your stock bars, the wiring squeezes out between the bar and the switch housing covers. The switch housing cut out will not be visible when put on the chubby bars. The reason I like best is because the Wild1 website FAQ page states they can't be.

On a serious note though, you should be able to swap them out in a day. I started mine at 7pm on a Friday night and had it all together by midnight. You may have more to do though with clutch/brake though. Regardless wait for a rainy day have have fun. Good luck.

I'm in Vancouver, Canada, we don't have to wait long for a rainy day here, lol We don't tan here. we rust!

I have already purchased a wire extension kit, and extended brake lines and clutch cables, so hopefully I have everything I need............... I also work for a beer company, so that's covered as well!!

Did you get the Outlawz? You don't need all the extra if you went with the 12" outlawz. also you have to pull the existing cables out, meaning you have to pull apart deutsch plugs anyways. When I did mine it took me 4 hours and 30 minutes of that was dinner and another 30 minutes was beer and another 30 minutes was a friend showing up to have a beer and help him fill out some paper work and 30 minutes was..........Just messing, but at least of those 4 hours 1 1/2 hrs was farting around.

As stated above there is no indentation for the wires to exit the controls to run outside the bars on Wild Ones.
