Wire extension kit?

I'm putting some different handlebars on my Deluxe & I'm wondering which 1 of the extension wiring kits, Novello or LA Chopper is better, or are they about the same? THANKS!

I dont know between the 2, but I am sure there is not much different in the wire. Match your wires and make clean connections, you should be good to go no matter which brand.

I used LA Choppers. The wires were matching and the diagram well drawn.

I can't speak for the other.

I put apes on my 2011 Fatboy and used NAMZ wiring extensions. Plug and play. No cutting or soldering.

I take it that on the NAMZ you must of disconnected the quick disconnect from under the tank & then disconnect from the switches too. Do the switches have quick disconnect or do you have to pull the little pin connectors out? THANKS!

The LAC kit is no cutting or soldering either.

You disconnect the plugs under the tank , pull the pins out of the connector, plug in the extensions and shrink wrap everything. Reattach the connectors and away you go.

The NAMZ extension I used was a 12" cable with factory wire connectors on each end. Just unplug under tank, plug extension to switch wiring , pull switch wiring with extension connected, through bars then plug other end to existing wiring harness under tank. No pins to mess with. My 2011 FatBoy has the new wiring (CANBUS). the bars only has 5 wires in them.

The NAMZ sounds great with no pins to mess with & crimp. Did you have to add shrink tube on it?

The NAMZ comes with shrink tube for each wire and a larger tube for going over all of them. I had two wires pull apart but I think i didnt let them cool enough before I put the larger tube on.
