can anyone tell me what size handlebars I can install without changing my cables and brake lines?
Oh, crap, you put me on the spot now.@ wspollack, I have a set of Helibars waiting for me to install on my XCT upon my return from deployment. Since you stated that the stock cables were "just do-able" How much over stock would you recommend for the perfect fit? I have a bunch of performance stuff I will be installing when I get home so I only want to tear it all down once since I have a lot of riding to catch up on if ya know what I mean! Thanks!
I wish you the best of luck, whatever your decision.Thanks Bill, looks like I got my work cut out for me! My XCT is also a 2012, I think it should be fun with the assistance of your rather excellant pictoral guide (disclaimer noted)! Considering how my hands and wrists felt after my first long trip on it last year down to Gatlinberg (Dragon was a blast) I think the effort will be well worth it! Thanks again! Ed
Thanks again! Yes, I think I will replace the clutch cable with the Barnett! I can get that and an extended brake line from Witchdoctors for almost half the price of a new clutch cable from Ma Vic! Best time to do it since the bike will be all torn down. This makeover for my XCT will be extensive and I just might be biting off more than I can chew but it will be fun! I will probably start a thread on the project when I begin it in mid July!And if for some reason that you feel you absolutely must replace something, I'd do the clutch cable. It's NOT a problem, but have you read the recent thread on how well made the Barnett one is? -- http://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=129634
