Re: Big Bar conversion ??????

Most stockers have a rubber boot where all that business hooks or un hooks up. I just pulled the plugs and and pulled the boot back over. If you have no exposed wires or connections then tape is a waste. Plus most electrical tape will come lose , unwind and make a mess when hot.

The BBR kit comes with a killswitch for the bars. You just unhook the stock and plug in the new. Ran mine for a while until I caught a pant leg on it and 86'd it. Now I just use the key.

BBR one is dumb anyway. I guess the contacts were not making good contact or something like that. Anyway it made my buddies bike stall constantly. We pulled the kill switch off and no more problems.

Luckily if you drop it the bike will turn off by itself .. carbs...
