Default Highway bars for Kingpin installation

Has anyone installed any highway bars on the KP? And if so did you run into any issues? I've heard horror stories but in the prep for installing them I don't see what the issue would be.

I have the black Lindby multibar. Install was cool, only had to loosen the front exhaust slightly for the clamp on one of the down tubes

Do you have foot boards?
edit: After seeing what you both have, it probably is no challenge. KP tours have floor boards so you need certain hwy bars.

Default Highway bars

I do have foot boards but I think I'm fine with clearance. My concern is the oil cooler. I got the bars from outlawchrome.com. I went online to their site & they say remove cooler.....?

Default highway bars

The bars went on perfectly. The only issue I ran into was the panhead screw included with the install kit was too short. I went to the hardware store and for a 1.89 the problem was solved. I also had to invert the horn allow room for the bars. Outlawchrome.com rocked the bars with great illustrationed instructions.

Linby Multibar, as previously mentioned I exhaust nut loosened and install was simple. Took an hour but I took my time. Clears oil cooler and starter fine. I kept everything loose and got The bottom middle connector bar attached and then tightened it all up for a perfect fit.

Default Lindby install on Kingpin

Agreed, best tip is to leave all the bolts loose until you get it where you want it, then gradually snug them down. Maybe in a couple of "waves", like you would lug nuts. The lower bar seemed to want to twist when I tried snugging it down all at once the first time.

The Outlawchrome highway bars went well. A few snags but simply overcome. The issues I ran into were sent to outlawchrome.com in an email but its all good now and I love the bars.
