KST - Straight Jacket bars

Ordered them Friday direct from KST’s website and they came in Monday. They look to be really well built, the paint looks great on them. Will be installing this Wed and adding my favorite Avon cushion grips when they come in Friday.

Nice. Would love to see a photo of these installed...will they be below the line of the top of the fairing? will your hands still be out of the wind?

I ordered a set of 14 on Monday. Hope to have them before the weekend. I really don't like riding the bike with the OE bars. They are the absolute worst.

Got my bars on in about 2 hrs, look really good. Didn't have to de-pin anything all the connectors are the micro ones like my Fatboy Lo was. Did have to cut zip ties on brake/clutch line but didn't need to re-route or pull slack.

Ground down control pins and used a punch to flush up the one on clamp.

Could have done in probably an hr but worked last night and wanted to take my time since I'm pretty tired already.

Verified everything works, going to take a nap and test it on the road when I wake up.

OP,

Did you get an email notification or anything when they shipped or did the bars just show up?

Thanks

Never mind...got a tracking number today.

Also you do not have to remove the ignition switch. Pop off the collar under the switch, turn switch all the way to lock and the gauges fit right over the switch. Then you can turn back to off position and stand the bike up to see if bars need adjustment before putting gauges back on
