OK, so I've been wanting to do this for a long time! Last week I finaly got around to ordering the handlebar clamp from Battlescooter and the y arived on Friday. I went out Friday evening looking for a new bar. I made the mistake of buying a cheap one, which got all scratched up from just handling it and test fitting the clamp. Went back out this morning and got myself a nice Pro Taper SE Schoolboy bar. Also og a set of Harri's grips and some grip glue.
So here's the bar, the bar clamp and gauge kit from BS, the grips, grip glue and bar ends (which I did not use)
Here's a before look, now take off the battery cover and mirrors. Then use a razor to remove your old grips. If for some crazy reason you want to keep them, then go ahead and struggle for a couple of hours and then end up cutting them up anyways
Remove the controls by unscrewing these two screws. Be carefull, take your time and use a proper screw driver. These bastards are on there good and they are very easy to strip. Take your time...
Once you have the controls off, you're gonna have to file the little notch on each one that matches up on the stock bar. Use a round file or a dremel tool to remove them. I guess if you wanted to you could try to drill a matching hole in your new bar. Up to you!
Next you'll need to remove the Speedo. Unbolt the 2 8mm bolts, save the two gaskets they're in, you can reuse them, then remove the speedo cable.
Then you'll need to use a hacksaw or dremel tool to free the cables from their little prison. Then remove the blinker indicator light by removing the lens cap.
Now read all the Japanese instructions... type them out into babelfish if your Japanese is rusty... then bust out a 14mm wrench and 17mm socket and take off that ugly ass stock handlebar. Save the nut and bolt.
Put on that Battlescooter clamp.
Pop on the gauge kit, use the two gaskets into the corresponding holes.
Then put it all together!
Final product, I think it looks sweet! Took it out for a quick ride around the block and everything was OK, so I think these instructions should work for you too.
