greetings. does anyone know why the buckhorn kit the company sells (part nbr 56078-96A) won't fit 99-03 883xl customs? my girlfriend wants buckhorns on her 02 custom and we thought this kit might be a good way to get everything at once. if anyone knows, some help would be appreciated. thanks.

According to the after market availability, custom chrome. The parts should all fit. Check for yourself though.

OK So this threads like two years old and instead of starting a new thread with the same topic, does anyone have any more information on this or first hand experience?

Nobody knows? :geek

OK So one reason that I'm thinking that it might not work is because of the riser on the Custom model. Maybe the cables they include aren't long enough for the riser?

If that the reason and its all i can see just buy everything separate.

My guess would be that the cables would not be long enough, and also the swithch wiring would be too short.
