Wild 1 Chubby install "Great Bars"

After a long spring of building my 12x20 shed, home for the bike in the winter, it will have heat and electricity. Finally found some time to install new 10" Wild 1 WO515 chubby bars in black. We rode to the "Ohio Spring ride" June 29th to meet fellow road glide members and had a great time. First long ride of the season for us. Still had the stock bars on the bike. I noticed with the stock bars your arms would get sore at the elbow where the tendon connects. We rode today with the new bars installed, what a difference. The building of the shed was a real MOD stopper. Sold the road king so let the MODS begin. My son is a Harley technician, and his words the Wild 1 bars were the easiest bars that he had wired, it took us about 3 hours on a rainy Fourth of July. See Photos.

Dropped bike off at shop yesterday to have wo515s installed. Needed a little more pull back and hoping these do the trick over stock. Look great btw.

The new bars on the bike look great.

Care to share more about your shed built?

For me they have a natural feel, don't have to lean forward, nice pull back. I am 6'3'' about 265. Wiring was a breeze.

Are they internally wired and were you able to use stock wiring?

Yes, you can use the stock wiring. I did extend mine with these same bars so I could located the wire connectors back where they were, but that was a personal choice.

I installed these bars and while I do love the look and wider feel, they do bother my neck. I have some degenerative neck issues and I was hoping these would ease some of the pressure but so far that hasn't happened. I'm going to try and raise them a bit this weekend to see if that helps. I ran the wires inside and changed the clutch cable to stay in factory setting. Does anyone else have upper neck issues and come up with a workable solution, I'm hoping just raising them will do the trick, I hate the idea of a new install.

Used all stock wiring and cables. Just rerouted the clutch cable.
