Bought a set of these about 3 years ago along with the wiring kit. Four burnt bulbs and many fuses later I found that during the installation I pinched one of the wires between the bar and the mounting bracket. Not much room here (just a small groove) to stuff wires. I recommend installing the bracket to the bar (where you can see everything) and then installing the whole assembly to the bike. Leave enough wire in the spot housing so that you can pull the socket out if you need to install a new bulb. Material is not the best on the bar itself. Even though I clean and wax often corrosion began appearing on the bar about six months of driving. Lastly, I rolled the bike on it's side coming out of a gas station. Bike coughed, I stopped and the big VTX1800R just rolled over at that angle. The bar broke but he spot just had small scratches on the bezel. They look cool though. Recieved many compements on them. I'm looking for a new set now that I have put on some Cobra fatty bars for role over situations. I've already got the wiring and bracket. I think I will clear coat the bar for weather protection though.
