I installed this item on my 2005 V-Star 1100 Custom and I can say that the installation is easy, straightforward and roughly 30 minutes if you don't have to relocate any cables. Just a heads up to the V Star owners out there I had to relocate my cables from in front of the triple tree to all cables/wires behind it. The added height and pullback placed a lot of tension on the cables until I relocated them and then everything was fine with no pinching. Installation time after relocating everything was a little over an hour. I went for an 80 mile ride immediately after installing these and I can say that the comfort level went up 10 fold. No more leaning forward to grab the bars now I can sit on my bike and the bars are easily reached. My ability to control the bike at low speeds also greatly increased due to the improved ergonomics. The only complaint I have is that the bolts that hold down the handlebars rusted after I washed the bike. I recommend getting caps or reusing old ones. Overall very satisfied with the product.
