Yep, need to see what that looks like with the wires coming out the bottom, how are they hidden?

And while you are at it, can you measure the length of the pull back. Basically, how long is the section from the upright to the end of the grip. (please note where you start the measure from, ie from the center of the curve, or the point or where ever as it can make a big difference.)
Thanks!

Thanks for all the posts - great info!

Wish I could have got mine as quickly as you did, not going to ask how you managed to get them before they were released on general sale

I got super lucky, I e-mailed them about the rumors of them making a 1.5'' bar and he called me immediately and said if I could wait a few weeks he'd sell me one of the first ones. I even texted him during installation with questions and he answered, really can't beat that customer service

Yup the customer service from KST does seem to be a lot better than some of the other bar manufacturers out there.

Long may it continue!

I emailed KST and asked them to please consider the demand for new Vanguard 16" bars (I mentioned our forum) and said that I really needed something before my Alaska trip in June (I mentioned Im running their 14" Straight Jackets now and why they dont work for me)
Anyway, quick reply from Ret Tolleson at KST that they can do that, but it would take 4 weeks lead time. He didnt give me a price (I would prefer the old style Pioneer bars, but also mentioned the Spearhead as that seems popular)
So, pending the pics from @KevDillow on the look of wire exit at the bottom, and assuming the price isnt crazy (ie are these custom?) Ill probably get an order in asap.

Again, thats good customer service.

Kinda hard to tell from the pics, but you really can't see the wires at all unless you're like really looking for them

Thanks, I think the trick is that the width of the 'clamping bar' lines up the exit holes with the forks, so it is narrower than what I expected (from looking at mine) Based on that design, and your excellent pics, Id say this is a non issue for me. Its almost like they planned it this way

Also appreciate the pic with the pull back measurement. Just what I needed.
