    Thanks Rich! Hopefully I can bring a few of my bikes out to Born Free or Chopper fest this year. It would be a pleasure to meet you in person. I always appreciate the AWESOME advice and tips that you have given me. So glad I went with these rearsets! My favorite mod thus far.

    Thanks Ed! Glad you feeling it my man! Really diggin the new bars on your bike :thumbsup:

    Wanted to go with an internal twist clutch originally but ended up going with a inverted lever. It'll do. Going to Motion Pro next week to get a custom clutch cable made with a inline adjuster.

  3. Oooh nice! I did think of doing the twist clutch too, but I didn't do it in the end!

    Thanks man! Yeah as much a cleaner application the twist clutch would have been I had concerns about the ease of the twist without an assisted pulley mechanism as made for the HD kits.

     
  5. That is what I thought exactly! Also twisting grips on both sides........ not sure about that lol! Maybe a thumb throttle? I don't know, so many choices, so little money!!!!!

    Yeah I was thinking about a thumb throttle before but happy I went the internal route for it. MonsterCraftsman demo'd one that looked cool if you were looking
    .
     

  7. I saw that. Still prefer the internal throttle as there is less clutter on the bars.

    That's too bad I really wanted to see how your bike looks finished. If your posting photos of it on another forum or any way I could see the final product let me know.

    Undoubtably I will post up another build, and soon! I just picked up a kz440 today:)

    Bay area really isn't that far away, I usually end up driving through there a couple times a year, next time I do I'd love to stop by and check out your builds in person.
