Factory 47 Signature 14 inch install question

Looking for info on the installation. The manufacturer states that existing stock cables and all work and no replacement or extensions needed. A buddy of mine had them installed on his 16 RGS, same as mine, and his mechanic , watched the youtube video, and insisted it can’t be done, and he added longer cables. I ordered the bars, but am currently deployed and having friends get bars installed. Anyone install these and were you able to do it without extension or new cables?
Thanks

I put those exact bars on my 17 RGS and didn't need any extensions. All the stock wiring and cables work. I also used the video on their website as a guide and found it very helpful. Make sure to be careful pulling that horseshoe shaped trim piece under the ignition - it is chrome plated plastic and will break if you are not.

No cable extensions needed, but i did cut the zip ties that are around the cables to the steering triple trees. It offers a bit more slack so your cables are not streesed too tight. I did have a bitch of a time fishing the wires through the bars!

Yup. Just cut zip ties and toss out that wired plastic wire organisation card thing under the gauges.

Yes 14” bars will fit, cut the zip ties and follow the f47 video.

My 17 no mods.

My 18 I added the 12” gorilla wire extensions. You don’t have to remove the plastic wire holder and it gives a little more working room. Worth the $30.

So you added the 12 inch guerrilla wire with the 14 inch factory 47 mainly for ease of install?

Correct. It's doable without just a little snug on the clutch side. It just gives a little more working room and it's easier to dress the wires.

Where did you find the cables for $30 ? On their website they are almost $40 plus $16 for shipping. I mean, I willing to pay it to make it easier on my bud doing install.

Tom, double check what you're buying and pricing. As a general rule of thumb there will be a difference in price between "extensions" that plug into the existing wires and just add length, or a full length wire that will replace the entire factory OEM one.

For example here's an "extension"



$29.58

And here is the full replacement (I usually go this route to minimize the number of potential connection points that might give me issues down the road).

$53.95

Tom, I bought them from the f47 web sight. They were $30.00 in December
