1WARNING
1WARNING
Grommets at each end of the handlebar must be in position
during and after routing the switch wiring through the handlebar. Switch and wiring installation or operation without
the grommets in place may damage the wires, causing a
short circuit which could result in death or serious injury.
Carefully pull the control wires through the hole in the
bottom-center of the handlebar to prevent stripping the
wires. Stripped wires can cause short circuits and damage the vehicle electrical components, which could cause
loss of vehicle control resulting in death or serious injury.
1. Remove the wiring retainers from both switch harnesses.
5. Pull the taped end of the wire bundle through the wireexit hole at the bottom-center of the handlebar.
2. See the Service Parts illustration. Check that the grommets (5) are in place in the holes near each end of the
handlebar.
6. Repeat Steps 3 through 5 for the left-side switch wires.
3. Apply a light spray of all-purpose lubricant, such as
WD-40®, to the right-side switch wire bundle.
1WARNING
Wiring in the switch housings must be routed carefully
and exactly as shown. Pinch points in the switch housings can short-circuit or sever wires, which could cause
loss of vehicle control resulting in death or serious injury.
4. See Figure 2. Route the wire bundle through the switch
housing as shown. Gently feed the wire bundle into the
right-side grommeted hole and toward the center of the
new handlebar.
1WARNING
Avoid the pinch points shown in Figure 2. Pinch points
in the switch housings can short-circuit or sever wires,
which could cause loss of vehicle control resulting in
death or serious injury.
1WARNING
Grommets at each end of the handlebar must be in position
after routing the switch wiring through the handlebar.
Vehicle operation without the grommets in place may damage the wires, causing a short circuit which could result in
death or serious injury.
7. See the Service Parts illustration. Check that the
grommets (5) are still in place in the holes at the ends of
the handlebar.
8. Loosely fasten the brake-lever and clutch-lever clamps
to the new handlebar.

Wiring the New Handlebar (Continued)
10. See the Service Parts illustration. Cut the heat-shrink
tubing (11) from the kit into two equal pieces. Slide one
piece of the tubing over the end of each wire bundle
exiting the bottom center of the handlebar (4).
11. Remove the tape from the ends of the wire bundles.
12. Check for electrical continuity between the handlebar
and each wire in the wire bundles. Continuity would
indicate a short circuit, which would require examination
of the wires and routing in the switch housing.
13. Refer to the wiring diagram and the DEUTSCH ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS section in the Service Manual.
Insert each pin-connector from the left-side wire bundle
into the correct cavity of the GRAY female Deutsch pin
connector removed in Removing the Stock Handlebar,
step 10, on Page 1.
14. Insert each pin-connector from the right-side wire bundle into the correct cavity of the BLACK female Deutsch
pin connector removed earlier.
1WARNING
Wires exiting the bottom center of the handlebar must
be protected from wear with heat-shrink tubing at the
wire-exit hole on the handlebar. Failure to protect the
wires with shrink tubing can cause short-circuits or severed wires, which could cause loss of vehicle control
resulting in death or serious injury.
NOTE
The heat-shrink tubing on the wire bundles exiting the bottom center of the handlebar must be installed to protect the
wires from damage and short circuits at the wire-exit hole on
the handlebar.
15. Position the heat-shrink tubing (installed on the wire
bundles in step 10, above) in the area of the center
wire-exit hole on the handlebar.
1WARNING
●
Use extreme caution when operating the UltraTorch
UT-100 or any other radiant heating device. Read
the manufacturer’s instructions carefully before
using the tool. Improper tool handling can result in
death or serious injury.
●
Always keep hands away from tool tip area and heat
shrink attachment.
●
Avoid directing the heat toward any fuel system component. Extreme heat can cause fuel ignition/ explosion resulting in death or serious injury.
●
●
Avoid directing heat toward any electrical system
component other than the connectors on which
heat shrink work is being performed.
Be sure to turn the “ON/OFF” switch to the “OFF”
position after use.
Installing the New Handlebar
1. Install the new handlebar risers (6) from the kit using
the saved hardware. Torque the riser bolts to 25-30 ftlbs (34-41 Nm).
Center the new handlebar on the risers. To make sure
that the handlebar is centered, verify that the knurled
areas on the outboard side of each riser are equal.
2. Position the new upper handlebar clamps (3) and install
with new clamp screws (1) and flat washers (2) from the
kit. Snug the upper screws, but do not fully tighten.
3. See the Service Parts illustration. Connect the 6-place
Deutsch connectors coming from the bottom-center of
the handlebar to the correct main harness connectors
under the fuel tank.
Match the gray harness connector to the gray left-hand
switch-control connector, and the black harness
connector to the black right-hand switch-control
connector.
1WARNING
Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive.
When servicing the fuel system, do not smoke or allow
open flame or sparks in the vicinity. Inadequate safety
precautions can result in death or serious injury.
4. Tighten the fuel tank. Refer to FUEL TANK-INSTALLATION (AFTER PARTIAL REMOVAL) in the appropriate
section (Carbureted or EFI Engine) of the Service
Manual.
1WARNING
Improperly aligned handlebars can contact the fuel tank
when turned to the left or right. Contact with the fuel
tank while riding can cause loss of vehicle control
resulting in death or serious injury.
5. Slowly turn the front wheel to the full right fork stop and
then the full left fork stop to be sure the handlebar does
not contact the fuel tank.
If contact occurs and the handlebars are properly centered, raise the handlebar angle as necessary until
proper clearance is obtained.
6. Tighten the upper handlebar-clamp screws as follows:
a. Tighten the front screws until the upper handlebar
clamps make contact with the handlebar riser.
b. Tighten the rear screws to 12-16 ft-lbs (16.3-21.7 Nm).
c. Tighten the front screws to 12-16 ft-lbs (16.3-21.7 Nm).
NOTE
There will be a slight gap between the upper clamps and the
risers toward the rear of the handlebars after tightening.
7. Follow instructions in the Service Manual to install a
new right grip/throttle sleeve to the handlebar, and connect the throttle cables.
16. Use a heat gun or suitable radiant-heating device to
shrink the heat-shrink tubing to the wire bundles.

left grip with the pattern on the right grip with the throttle in
the fully closed position.
8. Install a new handlebar grip on the left end of the new
handlebar according to the handlebar grip instruction
sheet.
9. Adjust the positions of the switch housings, and the
clutch and brake-lever assemblies on the handlebar for
rider posture and comfort. The brake master cylinder
must be horizontally level.
NOTE
Tighten the lower switch-housing screw before tightening the
upper switch-housing screw. This will leave any gap in the
switch housing at the front of the switch-housing assembly
for best appearance.
Final Assembly
1WARNING
Do not re-use brake-line gaskets. Use of original brakeline gaskets could cause front brake failure and loss of
control which could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION
To avoid leakage, verify that the washers, banjo bolt,
brake line and caliper bore are completely clean.
1. See Figure 3 and the Service Parts illustration.
Use the stock banjo bolts and new brake-line gaskets
(items 8 and 9) from the kit to fasten the new braided
front brake line assembly (7) between the front-brake
master cylinder and the front-brake calipers.
10. Using a T27 TORX drive head, tighten first the upper,
then the lower brake-lever and clutch-lever clamp
screws to 60-80 in-lbs (6.8-9.0 Nm).
Replace the stock “P”-clamps with the new clamps (10)
from the kit. Route the brake line through the new
clamps and adjust as necessary.
11. Using a T25 TORX drive head, tighten first the lower,
then the upper handlebar-switch housing screws to 3545 in-lbs (4.0-5.1 Nm).
Torque the banjo bolts to 17-20 ft-lbs (23-30 Nm).
Torque the brake line manifold screw to 10-15 ft-lbs
(13.6-20.3 Nm).
12. Verify that the right grip/throttle sleeve rotates and
returns freely and does not bind on the handlebar or
switch housing.
