    You just need to remove all the plastic stuff around the steering, remove the old bars and replace them with the renthal bars then fit a switch housing and the finger throttle, pretty easy to do. Makes for a better look and feel IMO, I did this first and then went over to the UMI when I could afford the extra $.

    The UMI is very very good. R88

    no umi.. hopefully one day soon or X steering, heres stock steering with 30in Star Bars(pretty much stock size, cover still fits perfect on them) with UMI start/stop/trim housing and riva adjustable finger throttle, and DESS post bracket, i like the feel and position much better than the bulky stock setup

    Thanks allot guys, now I see that it's possible to convert to Renthal Bars with the stock steering, so glad! I'll post some pics after my conversion! I have done most of the mechanical aftermarket products now for some cosmetic changes, seat cover and hood painted: done....

    No UMI but Renthal Bars, Finger throttle, Billet Stop/Start housing. I made a custom sleeve to cover the ugly stock steering tongue and so I could mount the DESS post.
