I really like the look of those bars. Did you have to purchase any cables etc to get them to fit. How do you like them over stock?

Thanks

I did not need to purchase any cables or extend the wires. The brake is a tad tight and I am hoping I can just get a 45 or 90 for the connection to the master-cylinder.

Check this thread for lots of feedback on the bars from me and BBob.

I've been toying with both the Klock shield and odom blade on the Madstad brackets and here are my opinions.

1) OEM blade only was ok, but was tiring after full day ride.
2) Klock shield only was horrific and unusable over 60 mph.
3) Klock with Madstad was better, but shield tilted back was to close to my face and too uncomfortable to ride with. Tilted up and it was to uncomfortable to see through while riding.
4) OEM blade with Madstad was simply terrific with some slight adjustments.

I'm 5'11 with a 30" inseam just so you can gauge. And all this is my .02.

I just received and installed my Madstad brackets yesterday. I have the Klockwerks shield on now and noticed the brackets helped alot in the quick ride I took before I realized my rear tire had a nail in it and had to head home!
I have the Blade wind shield but sort of ruined it trying to make it "smoked". I have the tall touring shield if anyone wants to trade their blade

I just added the Madstad brackets but since I have an XCT I had to order a windshield as well. After reading several riders weren't happy with the Klockworks windscreen, I went with a Madstad screen and am completely happy with it. I was concerned with the 11" being too low but even at it's lowest setting, I have a nice pocket of stable air. The tilt forward really helps. I have it about half way with the angle/tilt.

Hey Ken, is your gps attached to your bars or to your Madstad bracket? Been thinking of fabricating a bar between the Madstads to hold my GPS in lieu of it's current place...

I tried a bracket off the Madstad and it wiggled too much. I you look close under the GPS you can see 2 pieces of metal which go down to a highway peg pinch mount on the bars.
