Renthals Ordered, T-Rex Frame Protectors Arrived

Just ordered Renthal Road Medium's in Black with matching bar ends. Any advice on installation? And also just received T-Rex frame protectors, so any advice on that installation would be welcome as well....

Cheers,
Devin

I'll be taking the scientific approach for sure. Mock up then drill down. I'm stupid anal when it comes to this stuff. BTW, I was just informed today that my next project starting sometime in the next few months going into spring will be in Denver, so I'll be dragging the travel trailer and the bike out there. Maybe we can meet up....

Cheers!

They should bolt right up. I did Renthal Ultra Low's, took about an hour to tweak everything and get it set up to where I was comfy.

I have the same bars on mine and love them... I second measuring many times before you drill the holes... And hopefully you're planning on drilling the holes and not just snapping them off like some people do. Most guys cut off the ends of the bars as they're pretty wide, I just have the Controls in about 3/4" and mounted my bar end mirrors on the extra bar hanging off as my bar ends didn't fit in the smaller ID of the renthal bar. Other than that its pretty straight forward. Hardest part for me was getting the chrome caps off the bolts that hold the handlebar down...lol good luck!

I've got the same bars too. I went alittle overboard on mine, and made a sleave that fit over my factory bars to locate my holes, then transfered them to the renthals. Way overkill for sure. I've got the T-Rex sliders too, I threaded a stainless rod and instered it through the frame to bolt the sliders too, works really well.

I usually order my Renthal merchandise from Amazon but I look for the supplier at Amazon to be Motorcycle Superstore. Using Amazon Prime I get upgrades to 2 day shipping for free and the price is the same as if I bought them from MCSS...

They ship directly from MCSS in most cases
