Enduro Engineering makes a bar clamp specifically for this bar, or you can use the Fastway / Bonz method of attaching to the center bar mount on the triple clamp.

I will trade you a set of the 06 bars with heated grips if you want to give them up.

We are using moose bark busters they offer them for the twinwalls, Trust me they are way to ridged in our neck of the woods, take the cross bar off and it helps.. Zero flex in them.

I didn't like the bend at all. I Couldn't find good setup anyway. I bought "orange bike" high model Twinwall and shortened it about 1/2 inch. (I had same bend but fatbar in my old -07)

what do you guys do with the little plastic "door" they have screwed to the bottom air box drain?? When I saw that I thought it would do a great job keeping water out and an even better job of keeping it in the air box. This was verified when I pulled the air filter out after washing my bike and saw a nice little puddle of water still in there. Do you leave it as is, stick something in there to wedge it open a bit so it will drain, or just remove it all together??
