seems simple enough:
1. cut down frisco bars to be 5" narrower overall
2. remove all electrical controls from bars
3. trip/crop/cut electrical wires
4. make sure lights work and bike starts
5. relocate starter/lights/horn with new switches
6. install new throttle
7. cut 'ball ends' off of clutch and front brake levers
8. put it all back together
9. repeat step 4
10. go for a ride
ran into the following issues:
1. throttle holes for cables didn't line up with my throttle cable
2. had to drill out new holes to fit
3. after cutting width off friscos, throttle wouldn't turn because the bars weren't perfectly round at the narrow width due to the fact that the bars have the dimples for stock controls.
4. drove to Chris's house to get a set of the new frisco's which have a 6" rise instead of mine that have the 8" or 9" rise. his were already cut down nice and narrow and do work withe the throttle.
5. front brake lever needed some internal grinding due to interference with new throttle housing
6. throttle cable came disconnected a the carb.
7. remove air cleaner, remove carb, remove gas tank, to get to the throttle at the engine.
8. reconnect throttle cable.
9. do the opposite of #7.
10. reconnected the old switches without their housings just wire tied to the frame. didn't have time to get new switches yesterday because we were busy with a wedding.
BUT, bike starts and runs. it works and the bars are a lot cleaner looking and nice and narrow. I do miss the taller rise of the older friscos, but I figure I can always just get a set of the old ones that don't have the dimples OR just "make" mine round where they need to be.
