You have to cut one inch off your right bar, figure a exit point out of the bars, and run a set screw, through the bars into the grip boss.

If I recall, you cut the end of the bars off, insert throttle assembly, drill bars and its held in by set screws.

Actually you cut almost 4" off the throttle side, install and drill hole for the set screw. If you look at the part, the smaller section goes into the handlebar. The screw holds the part in the bar and your grip goes over the outer slide to work the "magic"...

I'm in for one as well.
I can pay up any time the $ is needed. I'd like to get it done in Jan if possible.
One thing we need to check on is the cable, my understanding is since we will use a single it will need to be about 6" shorter than the ones we have. They may sell the cable as a side thing...... Personally, that's just a minor thing IMO

I talked to Exile and they will give us a $159 each price if we can do 10 at once.

We'll shoot for that and do it around Jan 15th.

Here's the deal with the cable:

This assembly will allow you to route your throttle cable through your handlebars. It converts your carburetor to single cable action. Provided the cable is routed smoothly, then S&S, Mikuni, etc., carbs will still snap shut when the throttle is released. The upper end of the throttle cable wire is clamped into the barrel of the assembly and does not need a ferrule on that end. This means that it is very simple to modify one of your existing throttle cables to work with this assembly. Alternatively you can use any other throttle cable, provided one end is compatible with your carburetor and the cable is long enough. We offer an over-length throttle cable kit.


I'm planning on trimming mine...

Snowman, I'm just thinking about something, you said you'll take the Road6custom bars, are you talking about the apes ? 'cause those bars have an angle close to 90° at the top, and an internal cable can't handle that, well that's what I've heard anyway !

Can somebody confirm this ?

That's a good point, as i have his 16"ers. It seems that somebody would make a cable that is small enough to be flexible, yet still strong enough not to break. I know that my stock cables didn't take much of a bend at all without binding. Time to start the research...
