Default My warrior got a boo boo!

I fell on Friday at a low speed and luckily wasn’t injured. Apart from my shoulder being a little sore and my helmet scratched I think I got off ok. On to the bike. I have a 2007 midnight warrior that already had a few modifications. My handlebars are bent and needs to be replaced. I have what I believed is called a T bar handlebars that sweep back. I want to replace this with something similar that I can conceal the cables. Open to suggestions so that I can kinda customize this bike further. Also looking to get rid of the stock rear fender and get something similar to a bobber. If you all know where I can get these items please let me know. Thank you.

Sorry to hear you dropped your bike, that sucks.

Internal wiring can be a bit challenging if you have never done it before. Stagger the solder connections inside the bars, so they do not become bulky as they pass through the bars. If you are experienced at this, my apologies.

Good luck with the mods, glad you are okay.

Sorry about the tip over man. Glad your ok! When looking for bars that accommodate internal wiring some will be described as ‘DFIW’ for Drilled For Internal Wiring. Personally I’d ride with the bars for a while and make sure I love them before going through the challenge of actually running cutting staggering re soldering wires.

Glad you escaped relatively unscathed. You might be able to bend the bars back depending on how bad they are so that you can keep riding in comfort.

Glad to hear you didn't get hurt (to bad). It always sucks laying them down, even if your just standing still and you lose your footing... especially if you have custom work done to your ride...
