    96 XP Handle Bars

    Does anyone know if 97+ XP handle bar pads will fit the 96XP? I seen a picture of this done and I am wondering what it takes to do this.
    If the pad itself wont fit the original 96 handle bars then can I just swap them out with the later model XP handle bars?
    I really hate the mildew stains on my handle bars and I have access to a set of 98 XP handle bars + pad and was just wondering if they would work on my 96XP.

    ok well technicallly it does and it doesnt bolt right on.. a bracket needs to be fabbed in order to make the yellow pad mount.. other wise the plastic all mounts in the same spots..
