A little more progress...

Well, I just finished up on the inner fairing, Sinister Hot Rod Bars, Daymaker Headlight, Sinister Pissed off bezel, Sinister Gnarly grips, and Sinister Dirty Bastard windshield.

Everything went together pretty well. I had some trouble with the throttle grip snapping back. It was hanging up which is weird since both products were from the same company. I took the grinder to the bar and took a little bit off and it ended up working fine. As far as internally wiring the bars....IT SUCKED! That what took the most time.

Next things on the list are getting the windshield, bezel, and 4 inch bags all painted to match.

The lights are B.A!! Very easy install. Had to drill the outter fairing to add a support bracket because these lights are a lot heavier than stock. They also come with a gloss black bezel, but since I have the Pissed off bezel I didnt use it.

Cool ! Do those bars block the view of speedo & Tack, or is it just the angle of pic?

They block the gauges a little bit but not bad. 20-45ish is a little hard to see but you can see under the bar too
