I have a 2001 Dyna Wide Glide and have purchased a pair of 9" Carlini drag bars. I'm hearing now that I may have to extend the factory wiring. The people telling me this are the one's who want 600 bucks to do it. I'm doing the work myself but it's an issue of now, or this winter. Anyone have experience with this combo.


Thanks

I'm not familar with Carlini bars but since the WG comes with mini-apes the wires are already pretty long. Careful measuring of both sets of bars would give you an idea. Did the $600 estimate include a new brake line and clutch/throttle cables? Those need to swapped out too if the new bars are much longer or shorter than stock.

If you extend the wires, stagger the cuts from wire to wire so you don't end up with a huge bundle in one spot. Most folks use solder and heat shrink tubing to minimize wire thickness.
