Default Gorilla Bagger Bars

ok.

So im 6'2 with a 2015 CC. Ive been riding my 2015 for about 8 months now and although i dont think the arm positioning is the worst w stock bars, im thinking about changing things up w gorilla bagger bars.

My old bike had 18 inch apes so these look nice and conservative haha.

My question is what exactly is it that people are having to sand/drill off? ive read some reviews from people complaining about this, i just cant remember what they called it.

Installation difficulty?

There is a little nub on each of the switch housings , you can either drill a small hole in the bars at the proper position or you can simply grind or file the nubs off . Eeeezy-Peeezy .

The plastic control housing that holds the Hi-Lo headlight and hazard switches has a small plastic nub molded into it. That nub fits into a hole in the handlebars to keep it from spinning on the bar. People are just grinding off that nub so they can angle the controls how they want.

I put the Gorilla Bars on mine. Took around 5 hours by myself. I actually drilled the little hole in the bars for my controls. Heck, that was the easiest part of the installation!!
