I've had MANY people asking me over the last few weeks, "Have you installed your drag bars yet? Are you going to make a 'How To' video?" The answer: Yes! Finally installed them, and here's the walkthrough for installing drag bars on an Iron 883 Sportster (and models similar to the 2013.)
Firstly, I apologize if it's a little choppy and the camera angles aren't the best, as I was having technical difficulties, and actually went back to re-record some parts for you all. (The GoPro has been sent back for warranty repairs!)
Seems like it would be a pretty simple process, and once you've gone through it once, it is, but please be mindful of refitting everything together, and make sure everything lines up. The handlebars are the controls of your bike, pretty important stuff! Double check, and then triple check that you've reinstalled everything correctly when complete!
Should be common knowledge but I'll say it anyways; You should be using Loctite on the appropriate screws and bolts, as well as torquing things back down to factory spec. Be mindful of your torque specs!
As always, thanks for tuning in, and if you have any questions, please feel free to post in the comments section below, and I'll answer to the best of my abilities.
Thanks again, and ride safe out there!
If you're considering doing this and looking for a great in-depth how to video covering the grips, please check out the following video! Would highly recommend watching this video regarding the throttle cables, this guy runs a great channel!
