Thanks for the tip on changing the clutch cable, the stock one worked for now, so I'll just leave it till my next service, I've already bought a Barnett to replace the stock.xxxflhrci said:hlpsg, you can run your stock throttle/idle cables outside of the nacelle and they will work. I have 39 inch beach bars on my bike and did it that way. If you need extra clutch lenght, you can run it between the frame down tubes to get the extra length. I did that, too. If you want to change the cable, no need to take of exhaust. You can take out the right muffler support bolts and loosen the clamp around the transmission end. With this done, you can pull the exhaust just a smidge. This will allow you to us ball socket hex keys to take out the tranny end cover bolts.

Any of you guys but them on your FKHRCI? My 03 RKC is due at the end of this month, and I need to make a decision on the bars (as I get 30% off access and 10% off labor on all access purchased before delivery of the bike.) Also I got the bike for $1k over, but no set-up or delivery fee BS ($19005 +TTL w/ security sys.) [/QUOTE
I'm 1.78m and the 518s were just nice for me, 508s would have been too much pullback and I'd have to ride the bike with a dip at the elbows. I like to ride with arms almost stretched full and even with the 508s I still have some room to spare, more if I rotated the bars more towards me. There is no way to put these bars on without lengthening your wires though, Chubby lied.
