Barkbusters - How to fit to DCT

I thought I had already posted a question but I can't find it so trying again.

The Barkbuster instructions are hopeless and I am having problems getting the Bar Clamps positioned on my DCT bike, the problem is how to handle the cables on the bars, the instructions provided don't show any detail and certainly no cables.

Could anyone who has successfully installed barkbusters on a DCT bike please post some photos showing how the clamps are positioned and how the cables have been routed around them.

Thanks

It's funny, I was looking for information and pictures because I'm installing barkbusters on my DCT right now, too.

Assuming you have CRF1000L specific Barkbusters ? I hope the pictures attached help
Note: be careful not to put pressure on the F/Brake Switch.

Yes indeed, I found that out after I broke mine and then had to fork out 22 for a new one ;-)

The DCT takes a different barkbuster than the standard. Also if you want to use the Kaoko throttle lock it will take a different model also. I found all this out the hard way !!! Fortunately the good folks at Twisted Throttle filled me in and got me what I needed.

It looks like the brass insert which I think is a vibration dampener is no longer held onto the end by a little black clamp The couples the bar and wait the stock one with the brass dampener today anyone else noticed this it looks like The brass piecewants to walk deeper into the handlebar

Just unclip the bar-end screw from the internal dampener and leave the damper in the bars with whatever hardware is attached to it. You may have to move in back in a bit (depends on how far you pulled it out) as you add the bark buster hardware.

The dampener has o-rings supporting it and unless you push hard and shove it deep it is not going anywhere.

I like how in the pictures the left Bark Buster is already "experienced." I have certainly tested mine out, successfully I might add.

I am trying to install africa twin specific bark busters and they don't fit up worth a ****! It looks like they actual aluminum bar is about 1 1/2" to long. The clamp on the bar only fits on the small part, not the tapered so I can not get the 2 to reach each other.... any one else?
