Biltwell Zeds Do Fit
I know there has been quite a few discussions on bars and risers over the past few weeks and months. I also know a few have tried the Biltwell Zed bars and have had vary degrees of success. It took me about 30 minutes to swap bars and like 3 hours to navigate the cables, but for all of those curious, the bars do in fact fit the stock brake lines.
I had a good feeling because the Zeds are 6Ē more narrow than the stock bars, and the brake line does an annoying zigzag from the master cylinder on its journey to the caliper.
If you detach the brake line from itís connections at the fender and the lower triple tree, and then feed it so itís not behind the steering head and all on the brake side, you have plenty of slack.
I simply just zip tied the line in a few places and checked the tension on it. Itís secure and works.
Clutch cable and throttle cables and other wires are fine as long as you take them out of the brackets by the headlight.
If you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them.
Oh and I did drill the bars. The plastic knobs are in the underside of the clamshells, about 5Ē in from the clutch end and 5 1/4Ē on the throttle side.
