Baron Xtreme handlebar bar, accessories.
So, a few weeks ago I was stoked because I came across a smokin deal on a set of these bars. Got them in the mail shortly after and absolutely love their construction. I was looking at them the other day, getting ready to install and then I realised something. With the "fat bar" set up, where they're necked down at the ends for stock controls, there seems to be room for your grips, main accessory assembly.....AND THAT'S IT!?!
The previous owner of my bike installed cruised control, a set of heated grips and a bar mounted switch for the driving lights on the stock 1" bars. All creature comforts I would like to keep, but am now left scratching my head as to where I'm supposed to put them.
Do you other guys with Baron (or other fat bars) just say screw it and remove all of the extra gadgets, or have you figured out some creative ways of mounting them?
My current set up also has a tach mount, that mounts in succession with the speedometer, via stainless steel plate. Well...that's going away, since Baron requires you to use their speedometer pod with the bars. I like like the look of Baron's bar mounted tach pod, but I'll be damned if I'm dropping $200+ on it.
