Ohiobellboy, how do you like them ? Easy to push the wires through, even with the heated grips ?

The extra wires for the heated grips did make things quite interesting for sure. A whole lot tighter than what the videos show. Patience is a must with any bars that have that peak. So far so good. I didn't get much of chance to put many miles on them yet.

I thought the stretchy string made the wire pulling job easier.

It does make it easier but it still takes time and patience. I agree, the video makes it look a lot simpler than it actually is!

How the hell do you get the trip odometer button off in order to separate the left switch housing???

I'm working on installing my 12" Spearheads but stuck at this point.

Agreed, I only posted to show Sarge1400 the trip button removal. Dont endorse the whole video, but the tail end will also show how to put the button back on.

How the hell did they get the screws into the cluster housing on the sides with your bars pushed that far forward? I had to roll mine back to me a little bit.

That was the hardest part of the whole install.

I ended up using some long needle nose pliers and a lot of swearing!!!
