    Changing stock handlebars to pro-tapers on 2009 fx sho

    While installing a new pair of 7/8 pro taper handlebars on my fx sho I realized the throttle assembly did not fit. Am I doing something wrong or do these bars need to be grind down?

    Some people sand down the handlebars on the throttle side.

    Yes you need to sand down the throttle side of the bar. Otherwise its a little bit tedious but possible.
