I’ve tried searching, but couldn’t find anything really definitive. I bought a set of the Pro Taper Raptor bars for my 2015 ES. What all do I need to do to install them with stock controls and handguards?

That's what I put on my 15ES ; 1.. Get longer brake & clutch hoses from Tabasco aka( Rideonadv.com)
2 Drill and tap bar ends for the weights .. Forgot the drill size &tap but its in here somewhere.
3 When you take the control's off you'll see a pin that keeps them from rotating , I drilled a small hole in the new
bars for it to inset , some people grind off the pin's. Have them set up where you want to find the best place for
little inset hole.
Easy as that, just takes a little time and you'll be glad you did. If I got another s10 that would be the 1st thing i would do !! I'll see if I can find the tap and drill size.

I’ve already got 30mm risers, and I think the extra lines will be necessary with the bars. I ordered the tap and a 10mm flare wrench for the lines on Amazon. Thanks!

I got my Raptors installed yesterday. Just waiting in a replacement right heated grip (wires were broke on the old one when I got the bike) to finish up. Thanks for the tips and hints!
