Does anyone know of a fat bar (1.25 or 1.50 in) that works with the DX clam shell?

Anyone installed the bar? Opinion?

Fatty Z bars w/4" rise work. I did the internal wiring. It was a bitch getting around the corners, but it can be done. My album has a couple photos.

Fat Bar for DX with Clam Shell

Thanks, the bars look great. Nice ride you got there.

I found that if you use a light string, put it into the hole near the grip, then put a vacuum cleaner hose (with the vac on) to the hole you want to pull the wires through, the string will come through and around bends with no problem.

Yes, that is what I did, along with applying grease to the wires. It was, nevertheless, difficult to get the wires to cooperate around those very sharp angles. Did it eventually though. Thanks for the kind words about the bike.
