Looks good. Where in CA are you at? I'd like to see this. I was thinking about getting one, also what are you planning on doing with your plate?

Hey man noticed your ape bars on the Vegas what size do you have and did you have to change the cables after installation? I am looking at the brcustoms 1 1/4" NEW WAVE 2 BARS what do you think of these. I'll attach the link of a youtube video where the owner talks about the bars.

Trying to find the height on them but they are either 9" or 12" tall. These are the stock Highball bars from Victory. Arlen Ness actually swapped them out for me after I bought the Vegas. They did swap out all the cables and related equipment.

Not too hard at all. Pretty smooth install. Just take your time tucking/cable tying the wiring up.

have you done anything with your front turn signals, I am changing mine and have heard that Victory reversed the wiring on one of the signals for some reason

Here is my alternative to side mounting your plate if anyone else has saddle bags or laws to contend with. Cut the existing plate mount down, bend and drill some aluminum rail, then slap it all together.

If you switch your front signals to LED you'll probably need a load equalizer or resistor to keep the stock flash rate. To check for reversed polarity on the fronts one of those simple inexpensive circuit testers that lights up works just fine. I'm sure they have a proper name but I don't have time to look it up right now.

These are the MBW signals on my bike.

Kenrock this looks great! Do you have a link to the kit you purchased on ebay, or at least a name for it? Also, where did you get your plate bracket from that mounts to the axle? I'd like to do this mod as well.
