This is a good place to start. Start at the end and go backwards for more current bikes.

Are you doing a self install or paying someone else to do it?

Shouldn't have much trouble getting the wires pulled through those. Remember, lube 'em, push-pull & take your time.

To each their own, I donít care what someone puts on their own bike, but Iíve avoided meat hooks because I donít want something with an edge pointed in the direction of my body.

I found wd40 to work best to lube the wires. Windex didn't woke great for me

They're not that sharp. Lol. And if it's a car door you're about to slam into. The bars are the least of your worries and theyll likely be pushed forward. Not pulled into you.

I hated the look when they first came out. But the other options just looked plain to me.
