I have them on my 48. I love them. they are a few inches skinnyer than stock. My stock bars were 32 inches and the licks are 29 inches. I only had to buy a new brake line. I bought a build your own kit from magnum shielding. being a skinnier bar the bike turns quicker. Took a few turns to get use to the quicker steering. I think over all the bars are great! I feal a lot more comfortable on my bike now with my arms up higher!

Yeah it works but looks like hell. My braided line is actually stock length, 42" I believe.

I totally agree. That's why I ordered a brake line kit.

Cpracing, your ride is what I want to modify into! I love e white walls! Have u got any pics to share? I hoping that my braided brake line is long enough but I'm more worried about e electrical wirings. Damn there's a whole long wish list that I wana do to my nightster. Tank rising, relocating ignition, heavy breather, side shots!!!
