Polarbears winter work......

my old choke cable was stretched too much and didnt work properly, and part of my throttle return cable was torn/frayed slightly.

got them both replaced today with shiny new parts from honda. wasnt going to bother replacing them, but looking at the old throttle return pic attached, im glad i did

Good call Polarbear. Looking like that cable was going to strand you soon.

Just recently installed mine too. They went in fairly easily, just had to keep playing with the angles and control locations. Set mine to 0deg and same angle back as oems. I ended up putting the oem bar weights in to reuse the same bar ends I had. Only problem I had was the oem brake lines were wayyyy too tight for my liking. Nothing some Spiegler lines couldn't fix. They are taller and wider which is exactly what I was looking for. I even got worried for a quick second I wasn't gonna fit while splitting lanes. Lol

I have the apex clip ons. I've very happy with them. Personally I don't notice any flex and easy to adjust and change the bar angle
