Photos are upside down in the post. Funny as you noted Rubber Side Down.It's finally starting to come together now!
This afternoon I put on the Hooligan Grom bars by Fast 50s, some retro-ish looking MX grips, and a Honda bar pad I found online in Europe.
The bars make a HUGE difference! They are a bit wider, but more importantly have much less sweep. Just took it around the block for a test rip, and boy does it feel much more "aggressive"... definitely much more comfortable for stand-up riding.
As others have mentioned, the OEM handlebar controls have a keyed tab on them that goes into a hole on the OEM bars. I put them on, adjusted angle to preference, and tightened them down tight - which made a mark on the black bars to use as a guide. Took them back off, and simply drilled a hole in the new bars for the tab. They are dead locked tight now.
Grips are on with Renthal grip glue and safety wire.
