Well, I only had time yesterday to install the tubular bars and today the misses and I flew to Colorado for a family gathering this weekend. So, this morning I started the install. The short answer is that if you are just installing the new bars and the lowers, it's an easy install, probably no more than a couple of hours, tops. I decided to reroute my iPhone connector from my saddle bag to the front, which meant that I wanted to install the locks, which I did, which was easy to do but time consuming (I take my time when I drill holes). And then I had to reroute the wiring harness (remove the saddle bag, the seat, lift the tank, snip zip ties, retie, route through the front, more zip ties). And in those 2.5 hours I had before I had to shower, pack and get the cab, I did the key locks, the wiring, installed the inside of lowers. If I had another 1/2 hour the lowers would have been completed.How difficult is/was the install? I have them on order as well, but am not very talented.
Re: safetey re comfort, I don't think "crash" bars deliver much safety anyway. Comfort, OTOH is everytime you ridecheers
If I had paid retail, which I didn't, it would've been >$1500. There are several vendors here who can help you with a deal.those look fantastic! what do they cost?
Hi Greg, I'll check today and let you know. I'll share pics as well.Jagular, there have been several posts re: the inability of using the Victory Highway pegs with the hard lowers. However, harley, and kuryken (plus probably many others) make them for Harleys with their tubular crash bars, and particularly Harley hard lowers.
Is there enough room to fit highways pegs on the Victory tubular bars (i.e. space between them and the lowers)? Proabably need
1/2 " minimum.
Thx Jagular, that is good news. I have short legs, and the Victory forged bar pegs were too far away. With the round bars I can get either Harley or Kuryaken pull back highway pegscheersHey Greg, we're heading out for a ride this morning and I checked; it should be absolutely no problem to mount highway pegs on the bars with the hard lowers installed. I'll post pics later. There's plenty of room.
Nice. Here's a pic of the bar and the lowers. There's plenty of room to mount the pegs.Thx Jagular, that is good news. I have short legs, and the Victory forged bar pegs were too far away. With the round bars I can get either Harley or Kuryaken pull back highway pegscheers
