i had a fall on my Honda cruiser, and it ruined my freeway bar. didn't want to replace it with the same old thing, if i was going to spend, i wanted an improvement. this product makes my Honda look much better. had to disconnect the top of the radiator, and turn the front fork straight ahead to slip this in, but it worked great. my only gripe is that it took me months to find this product. i was leery of compatibility because i had special ordered two other bars previously, but called and spoke to a MotoSport sales person, who kindly called the factory to verify this was a guaranteed fit for my bike.
