    Not really sure what the benefit would be honestly. Funny, but those are actually my bars that brooklynbomber posted above, and the wires are not a problem at all for me. Plus, I suspect those bolts are too small to even drill out a hole big enough to house them, at least not without making the threads prone to failure in the process.

    Generally speaking, I would consider weakening critical fasteners, such as bolts securing the handlebars to the bike, to be "poor judgement."

    But that's just my opinion. Thanks.

    I've had your blog saved for months now and plan on using it to do the same with my bars. It looks damn good and a great write up.

    (BTW shouldn't this thread be merged with the Mini Switches thread?)
    What was the shipping wait like? I've been thinking about ordering some of their other shit.

    Update!
    I just tried the cheap Taiwan Ted clutchlever, and guess what..... perfect match on my 2011 Iron
    Only thing needs to be modified is that you need something to hold the "pin" in place, but that can be solved in several ways...easy. Drilling a hole through it and just pull a wire through should work. But i was thinking of making something more permanent that would have a flat top so it dont drop through the hole, and then bolt from the bottom.
    Also i was thinking a set of brass or copper bushings would look better than these in white plastic. Maybe that is already available somewhere?? Or else it should be an easy thing to fix in the lathe.

    Anyway, here is some pics...






    And of course...., will be matched with theese too....

    Cheers !!

    Looking great! Where have you bought the parts? Will it be a matching set on the brake side?

    Clutch assembly is from V-twin i think. Bought it many years ago..
    Im working on the brake setup, but i doubt it will be a total match.

    Hello I have been working on a new Sportster project and this time around, I've gone with these ISR levers and integrated switch housings. So far, they're sweet!

    But depending on the look you're after they might not work...they are extremely nicely machined but pretty racy looking if that's not your thing. For my bike though, I think they're perfect.
