Looks nice. I'd call them and ask for a confirmation. It will depend on your bike's model and year. I understand the Kingpin has different length cables with longer cables more recently.

Glad to see that site though, I may get some wheel from there. Those are the best designs I've seen yet.

I bought a bar similar to that for a Warrior and while I really liked it, it did cut right across the speedo display. If you're one to keep an eye on that device it may bother you. It may not do it in your model, but it would be nice to know before you go to the time and expense of changing to it.

saddlebag, that did cross my mind. I look at it but not a lot. I also think if it gets in the way I may be able to change the angle of the speedo a bit.

Jesse, yes that does help a good bit. thanks

I have the chrome set on my blacked out 08 8 ball. It does block the idiot lights underneath if you're sitting more upright, aka with a rider. Still love them though.

The 9x11's seem to be right at what my factory bars measure at. I was hoping to rise an inch or so to get my arms more level.

I installed a set of CP (Cruiser Performance) bars on my last vegas. I wasn't overly impressed.

The riser bushings never came with the bars in the first order. When I did get them, they were two different sizes. There was too much play in my opinion compared to stock or aftermarket vic brand bars.

Also, I had to drill the bars so the little notch in the electronic controls would fit. Otherwise the handlebar controls don't fit flush.

Other than that the install was easy. Cables fit fine but I had a short (4.5") rise on mine.

Peace.
