What is there to know? It's pretty straight forward.

When you do a stretch usually you have to lower the bars so the rear brake cable (and possibly the throttle, I forGET) will reach way back there.

Pick some bars and and a new neck. Remove the old bar/neck (it's one piece). either use the stock controls or aftermarket. put the new neck and bars on. Put the controls back on. you'll need new grips.

On the bottom of the stock controls are two little nubs that fit into the stock bars. With aftermarket bars, I personally, just grind those nubs down/off. A new bar won't have those holes. An aftermarket control will require you to wire the left hand modulus block and possibly the starter and run/kill on the right, which you might not want to do right now. If you stay with stock controls everything is already there.

Search the forum for how to keep your speedometer, if you want to keep that. use google to search the forum.

ta-da!

I just picked up all my parts for handlebars. It'll be on my build thread that's in my sig later tonight or this weekend sometime. Its not a Ruckus but it's a Ruck front end, so same difference :hihi: Ill be sure to take a lot of pics to you can see what all is involved. But like the others say, pretty straight forward... But since I got low drag bars, i also purchased a shortened front brake cable so you don't have much excess that the stock one will give.

Replacing the bars is easy, is say they toughest part is removing the bolts holding the controls together without stripping them. Your avatar is awesome!!!

thanks guys. ya i have the mojo coming in, and doing 12.5 stretch, hoping this with a new bar will go smoothly. Its not really the controls that worry me, its the distance.. the kit i have has the extended throttle and brake lines, I just hope its not too long, with the drag bar... (like did he measure "extended length from a drag bar, or a stock bar i guess is the specific concern... i guess it will be trial an error. probably error knowing me. lol... Thanks for the comment about the avatar. frank the tank is a hero of mine that I try to live up to every weekend. can we get KFC?!?!

Do yourself a favor and replace those bolts with some decent ones with allen heads. I found some that fit at http://openbuildspartstore.com/screws/ . I forget what size they were.
