            Your right. I want the lower fairings for the crash bars. Then solo back rest setup, then 2 up back rest setup. Then 2 up tourpack setup. Then Im done. Oh shit forgot pumpless and ais delete and clutch upgrade. Honestly think thats the next project.

          Bike is coming along nicely. I just pulled my AIS this week while looking for my missing dowel pin. The kit should be here tomorrow. For your cables, Motion Pro is located in Loomis, near Sacramento. Maybe give them a call and see if you can get any good guy locals deals. Couldn't hurt to ask.

            Nope, not yet. Worst case I'll have to pull the front jug and fish in the case with a magnet. I'm still hoping I'll just see it sitting on the ground. ...A man can dream.

          Called Motion Pro today. They only do cables, no brake lines. 86.00 per throttle cable. And 96.00 for clutch cable in stainless steel. Tim doesn’t have a full set in stock and Im impatient to wait, though I leaving on a cruise

                  I'm actually heading out on the bike now... What time are they supposed to be there? I was going to head to Alice's, but I could come up that way.

                  I'm sure you can handle it. We'll get a ride in sometime soon; the weather is getting warmer and I'll be up that way a lot.

                      So I got the bars and cables on. Taking a break. Then off to find some wire and heat shrink. Planning on soldering the wires tonight and finish install tomorrow. I have a knee that’s giving me quite a bit pain and swelling. Cables are a little long but the fairing will hide them too.

                            Ok so I got more work done tonight. I got my harness extended and heat shrinked. Also drew out pin location diagram so I can pull all the wires out of the plastic plugs to feed them through the bars. Hope to finish tomorrow if my knee feels up to it.

                              So I finished the 14” Ape install. Not to bad. All hand controls work so I guess I did the wires correctly. But like many having a hard time bleeding the new brake line so the lever is zip tie back, wifes vibrator ziptied to the tee. Lever wont build pressure at all. Cracked all fittings and fluid bleeds through.
