Hey,

I plan on changing my risers and bars and don't want to use the factory speedometer. I will most likely install an l.e.d. speedo.

How hard is this conversion. And how do I minimize the amount of wires seen with all the new hardware. I dont think I will be drilling holes in the new bars. Any Suggestions would be greatly apprieciated. :o

If your not drilling holes in your bars your going to have to use the very expensive "INVISIBLE WIRING". It is hard to find.

Hmmm....Lets see where did I put that roll? I can't seem to see it anywhere!

If you want to really hide it, it's gotta be in the bars........and very difficult and time consuming to do.....:sorrysign

This conversion is very simple, just need to figure out which riser and
bar combination you are going to install. If you go with a T-BAR
the wires will go up inside the bars, they are dimpled on the ends
so the wires will pass thru to the switches. Check outhttp://www.wild1inc.com they
have a whole selection of bars online. I installed the W501 T-
bar with 8'' rise and 11.5" pullback and they are 30.5" wide.
All wires are run inside the bars except for the turn signal wires.

This conversion you must cut and extend the wires from inside the stock sporty riser. Just label each wire as you cut them to extend them inside the new bars. It is pretty simple just need to align the colors of each cut wire
back with the colors that match on the switches. They are all color coded
on both sides so you can't go wrong.SOUNDS CONFUSING!!!!! .

Last thing if you go with digital speedo the DAKOTA DIGITAL speedo
is awesome piece of technology. It has all the turn signal, oil, high
beam, neutral and tach included in one little unit. The Dakota is a
simple plug in application. Just have to buy the mount for 1" or
1 1/4" bar size, and the sending unit that plugs into the speedo
harness under the seat. :luvsport They also have a little speedo
which is half the price of the one with the tach included.
