Beach bars are totally cool. It makes the bike look wider and lower to the ground. I think I got the bars with the dimples and drilled. All I remember is that I didn't have to drill any additional holes. The switchbox housings just mounted right up perfectly. I had a couple guys help me install the bar, since I'm not good with this stuff. First of all, the knurles will not line up with the stock risers, because these bars are not specifically made for the bike. However, they will line up 50/50 with the risers. Like half of the knurles with meet the risers and half with be visable. So it's recommended you get a handlebar clamp. I don't think the stock clamps will work well, so get a new clamp at the same time. Not only will the clamp cover up the visable knurles from the top, it really tightens the bar down from moving. (Check out the cool clamp with the clock I have as well). You will not have to get all new cables. You will just have to reroute the cables to get the extra slack you need. If you ever plan on switching over to new grips or chrome switchbox housings, I suggest you get everything at once. It will be less work as this can be time consuming and alittle tedious to do. Adding the beach bars was one of the best things I've added on my Aero. Makes riding more comfortable and it just feels cooler.
