im still working on my bars. i have all of the wires extended but im having a **** of a time getting the wires through the bars. any help would be awesome..
Even if you didn't stagger them, just stagger when you pull them through to avoid that bulge...Scootman said:Did you stagger your solder connections when extending the wires? If you did not, then you will have a helluva time getting them through, if you do at al.
Work with the right one first since it has less wires on the controls. Once you get that one through, you will have a little experience and then the left one might not be so tough.
All the above replies and probably the most important is what Pep stated above, push before and while your pulling. The problem is where bars transition from bar to riser there is a square edged 90,probably not deburred, so your pulling over that. When you push you create a loop radius which you can then pull down. You have to inch worm it and be patient. You'll know how you did when you see the shape of the wire insulation/tape when it comes out. All it takes is one cut insulation touching ground and you got problems. The last thing you wan't to do is do it twice. So take your time.Pep said:As has been previously stated, stagger the solder joints, attach some "tough" string to the end of the bundle, lube the inside of your bars (WD 40) worked okay for me, tape-off all holes int he bars except for your entry point and exit point, then suck the string through the bars with a vacuum cleaner. Push the bundle while you pull the string. You'll get there you just need some patience.
