Looking forward ot seeing them too! Quick question though, aren't you concerned about seeing with the Street Glide Mirrors. I've thought about changing up my bars, but I have those mirrors on, and with the holes in the fairing I'm "stuck" with them.

Let me know how yours works out, very interersted.

Rob - I hear all the hub-bub about the ABS brakes is that there's a "special" way to bleed them. Sounds all hokus pokus to me. fiv_oh did his with no problem, and there seems to be quite a few others who have also done it. I ain't skeered!! :lol:

So far (3 years) the only ABS I've needed was the one on the rear brake. My right foot got carried away one time when I needed to stop in a hurry on dry pavement (not paying attention). That ABS on the rear brake sure did the trick in one single click.

I never needed ABS in the front. I think the front ABS probably only kicks in when you are on ice or snow, in which case you are pretty much screwed with or without ABS!

But do you like the way it turned out? Do you still like the feel and ride?

I do have to say that they made a big difference in the ride. Low speed handling in the parking lot is where I see the most change, but riding the twisties was better as well. Overall, I'm glad I did it and would do it again... but it was still a pain the ass. Still don't have the clutch cable adjusted where I think it should be. Thinking I have to take the transmission cover off again and check the "ball and ramp" assembly to make sure it's sitting correctly.
