Bar swap and remounted original bar ends/hand guards
I just installed a new set of Pro Taper Contour fat bars. I was not ready to drop another $150 on Bark Buster Storms so I found an easy way to mount the original ones in the smaller diameter Pro Tapers.
I had read about drilling them out but it looked like it would take too much material away. I have so been cruising the hardware store looking at drywall and concrete anchor options.
So I looked in the parts bin and found a long nut and bolt and fuel hose. I just ran the bar end and spacer, then a bit of fuel hose and the new flared nut and jammed it into the end of the bars and it tightened right up.... I guess the friction of the hose held the nut in place. I probably should have added a washer but the nut was flared and holds really well.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, see the 2 pics below.
