Default Highball bars on a 07 Hammer...

After sitting on a Vegas with HB bars...I WANT them. I've seen them on Ebay for 2008 and above. I'm not too worried about the cables, I know I need a custom brakline. What concerns me is the electrical connections. Will the wiring included with the 2008 kit work with the 2007 hand controls? Thank you in advance to anyone who can help.

That would be sick! I hear vic sold the kit like $300-400 with all connections but not sure, I'm also kind of interested to get the kit for my jackpot. Just wonder how it would change the handling, the look would be sick though.

Im not too worried about the handling...if I was, I woulda bought another crotch rocket. What I want is a bad-ass blvd cruiser. The HB bars are by far some of the BEST lookin bars, IMO...from any company. The only thing stopping right now is the electrical...so somebody, PLEASE help.

Are you sure the kit comes with the switch housings? I know stupid question, but i just did a bar swap and upgraded i looked to go that route with them bars but decided against it..I went with the Ness set up and got rid of my risers, all in all i had enough slack in my cables and in brake line..i popped all my wires out of hardshell and did internal wiring..so long story short i guess im trying to say you might have enough slack on your hammer set up to do the same its worth the old college try..i osted pics and process of my bar swap in here..If i can help you in any way feel free to ask questions..hopefully this gives you a little more insight ...good luck

Well, according to the description, SOME type of wiring is included. I dunno if its all new wiring harnesses, new switches, or extentions...hence my original question. I do appreciate your offer to help though.
