I'm wondering if any of you xs guys have ever run a harley / custom hand control set up on your xs. Obviously you need to run 1 inch bars and risers but are something like these doable? I like the look I'm just wondering about wiring etc... any input is appreciated. Thanks. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1972-81-CHROME-HAND-CONTROL-KIT-CONTROLS-SWITCHES-/350420768278?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5196b49616

I think you'll be surprised how large and obnoxious they'll look... I bought a harley clutch lever and perch to use on my chop, it won't be going anywhere near it, opted to run a dirtbike setup instead.

If your set on harley controls, and running switches on your bars... Have a read through this, pretty clean setup

do you have the stock controls? you can cut,file,sand,polish them into something decent. i filed off my mirror mounts,polished the crap outa everything and it came out pretty good....and its all free.

I thought about dirtbike controls, and I think that's what I'll look into. Thanks alot for the links guys!

what do you need to run on your bike? signals? or just lights and horn?
I got myself a tricon switch on ebay. looks super clean and it has two button switches and a dip switch that I will use for hi/low beam.
and it's 7/8 inch.

i actually don't mind the look of this clutch lever at all. i just want to run a front drum so could i buy two of these and just flip the other one over? seems logical hah. i can't really tell if they have the same amount of travel.
