the bars were easy to put on. the hardest part was cutting this metal piece that holds your brake cable in place so the cable would clear with more space due to the bars going back an 1 1/2". That was the only bitch about it. I have taken them off and on abotu 3 times in the last 2 months and trying to mount a streetfighter light. So I havent really rode the bike that much since I have no light, But I have ridden it around my neigborhood and it is way more comfortable so I havent put any serious miles yet. Once I get a light I will put some miles on it and let you guys know. For now, highly recommended! Next project GP style exhaust.
