HOW TO: Install Z Bars on Harley-Davidson Sportster
- Published on Jan 15, 2018
- How to install Z Bars, grips, and new brake line on the Harley Sportster!
Ms. Blockhead didn't like the stock bars on the Harley 48, and loved the look and feel of Z Bars. So she decided on a height, I ordered everything we needed and surprised her with parts for Christmas! We installed the Z Bars soon after!
► PARTS USED:
- Z Bars 8”: amzn.to/2CIvjYf
- Arlen Ness Grips: amzn.to/2DdYOSY
- Burly Cable Kit: amzn.to/2mdg6aw
- Brake line only: amzn.to/2CMUj0N
- Brake Bleeder Pump (Stockton): amzn.to/2CKdNmE
- Brake Bleeder Pump (cheaper): amzn.to/2mcWAuV
- DOT 4 Brake Fluid (Motul): amzn.to/2FjYNxp
- WD-40: amzn.to/2CMUfhg
- Blue Thread locker: amzn.to/2CLMAjo
- Magnetic Bowl: amzn.to/2CJJY5r
- Torx Bits: amzn.to/2mdgQMQ
- Hex Bit Sockets (SAE): amzn.to/2FjYZN9
- Shop Towels: amzn.to/2EspcIj
The process should be nearly identical for most Sportsters. I know my 2013 Iron 883 was the exact same (except I installed drag bars so I didn't have to change the brake line.) The bike worked on in the video is a 2010 Harley-Davidson Sportster 48. Based on your make and model year, your experience may vary. Please note the disclaimer below*
