I bought a used set of forged highway bars and I'm installing them on my XC 8-ball (no bar from the factory). Do you leave the rubber pad on at the upper mount or does it mount directly against the machined surface?

No rubber. Metal on metal.

Some have said the forged bars cause more buffeting. Let us know your impressions on that once you get them installed.

I added the forged bars to my XC 8 Ball last night. Ride into work this morning and did experience a little buffetting. Nothing terrible though. Keep in mind I have been running the round bars and Victory Hard Lowers and fairing winglets for the last 9 months.

The top covers are plasti dipped. I did that as a temporary solution to see if I wanted the flat black or gloss. I'm thinking I'm going with the flat black. I can't get over how amazing these forged bars are. They give the cross country a look like no other...

I knew the magnums didn't come with any bars. You'll love the hard lowers for wind management purposes. I just didn't care for the look. I'm going to keep mine though. Just in case I want to go back...
