You can purchase the bars for about $150 and the brake line for about $50. The labor time is about 3 hours at $65 to 75 per hour or a total of about $400 to $425.

I changed out my bars and the most difficult part (which should have been the easiest) was bleeding the air from the brakes.

Just helped Cyclops do his...

and, yes, bleeding the brakes was the hardest part of the job. But... we got it done and the bike's runnin' good, and lookin' sharp.

my dealer charged me 200 bucks labor. I've heard some got their dealers to 'cap' the labor at 150. good luck.

oh yea, my dealer spilled brake fluid on my radiator cowling. Of course, they replaced it no questions asked.....as it did mess up the paint job on it!

mr marconi... go over to the tech board and see redvalks reply to my request for info on swapping out the bars... the unknown author does a good job of telling you how to do it... step by step... your Honda dealer may tell you that you need to replace the clutch line as well as thebrake line, (you don't) and if you do this yourself, strongly advise you NOT install a new clutch line unless you wanna get into a much bigger overall job (i believe you gotta remove 1/2 the radiator cowling, and pull the tank to replace the clutch line). you do have to remove the left side grip but it pops right off by judicious use of a jewlers screwdriver, WD40 and compressed air to drive the WD40 up under the grip... best advice i have for you if you do this yourself is take your time and carefully label each and every part and the order in which it comes off the bike, so you can put each part back exactly in reverse order... especially true for all bolts cause you do not wanna be guessing at which bolt goes where, etc. Honda does not use any assembly lube on bolts at the factory and reccomend you use some during reassembly. will make working on your bike much easier next time you need to. however do not use any assembly lube on the brake fluid reservoir as you want to avoid any chance of fluid contamination... cover your bike will during the work and have a layer of plastic in between cloth layers so no brake fluid spillage can get on painted surfaces... and lastly.. follow the thread on the tech board about brake bleeding... the rune has a linked system so you swill have to bleed both rear and front... it takes some time...
