I plan to use the existing handlebars, controls, speedo, etc. and mount to the KTM triple clamp. I cannot come up with any reason to change these if they will work. I have a minor problem with mounting the Harley brake line to the KTM caliper because they are two different style of bolts, but I have an idea on how to fix this. The stock riser puts the handlebar position is too high and too far back, but I need it because the speedo housing is the top bar clamp. So I cut off the bottom bulk, leaving me with 1.5" risers. Harley uses bolts from the bottom that go through the top triple clamp and thread into the base of the bar clamp, but the KTM bolts into the top triple clamp from the top, through the bar clamp, with the bolt head nested below the handlebar. I decided to use the KTM method.
