Just ordered a set of Wild One 612s for my 13 RGU and a set of Avon Cushion Grips. Nervous as hell about doing the install myself, but I've got a guy I work with who has done a few bars himself so I'm sure all will be well. With the stock bars, I can't ride but for an hour before the ride almost becomes miserable. Keep me in your thoughts in prayers for not only the install, but also because I haven't told my wife of the purchase yet! :rolleyes: Plus side is, I got the bars for under 200 on Direct Cycle Parts!

Take your time and it will go well.
All the help I needed when I did it was found right here.
As for not telling the wife it is easier to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission.:D:D

Take your time and watch a video on YouTube if you can find one. I just swapped mine out. I used a link chain (like a ceiling fan pull chain) to pull my harness through. Good luck.

Got everything pulled out! Stopped short of pulling pins out of the connectors. Tomorrow I'll make a drawing on the connectors and take them apart and start pulling stuff through!

I've had the Air Cushion and now the Velvet ride grips and didn't have to trim the bar.

Both sides pulled through. I'll bolt it all up on the bike in the morning. So far it's been much easier than I anticipated. I honestly believe anyone could do this job

How are you liking the wo 612s now? I am thinking about ordering the same set. Did you get to use all stock wires without extensions and stock cables?

Rick, love these bars and grips! Much much much more comfortable over stock. Went from being able to ride an hour at a time to hours, all due to change in posture and arm height. With the 12s, you don't need any extensions of any kind. Stock cables and wires work with plenty left over. I highly recommend both the bars and grips. Very high quality

Hi Bro , I have a 1 rgu , I am wondering with these new bars are you able to sit back and move around on the seat? It seams with my bars ( I don't know what they are bought it used) but it seams like I am stretching so much I cant move in the seat at all I am looking at these WO612 also.
Thanks Duh didn't realize I already asked a question about these. Also would you have any pics of you on the bike and how tall are you?

Following this, I've been looking for new bars, can't decide on 12 or 10
wjco9 go with the 12 in I was looking at both the 10 and 12 inch Wild 1 outlaw z bars blacked out. I ended up getting the 12 in and I am very happy with them. They fell perfect. I am 5'11"

Yup, super comfy, no stretching and can move all over the seat if I want. I'm 5'11 with a 32in inseam. Don't have any other pics laying around and the poor bike isn't accessible right now (winter lasts forever in the north country of new york)

Thanks a lot Virginian I think those are what I need I am just your size and I love the fact that you don't have to change cables or wires.
