Bars ordered!

Ordered a set of bars from BR Customs today. Now the wait begins, which they said would be 8 weeks or so. Can't wait. Went with the 1 1/2" bent sweeping beaters.

Make sure you get the wires pre-wired.. It's worth the cost..

I wired my previous set of BR bars that were 1 1/4" bars. I figure 1 1/2" bars would be a little easier. That was on a dyna, but from my research, it doesn't seem all that bad on the glides either.

With that said, I'm open to any and all input.

I bought my wire extensions from Bill but wired my 1 1/2" sweeping beaters myself , it was very easy especially after having done Yaffe's before

That's funny. Even though I don't plan on taking the bike apart until winter hits, I still want them in my garage just so I have them. But I have a long way to go, let us know when yours come in so I get an accurate lead time.

My sweeping beaters arrived last week after 13 weeks

Will I need wire extenders for 12" Sweeping Beaters?

I'm not 100% sure. I was gonna wait to mock up the bars and see how short the stock wires came.

When I ordered my 14's, they advised a +4 for stock routing of cables and wires. Sooo, I went to my local shop and got that kit and ordered the nicer-than-stock hydraulic lines fro clutch and brake.
