Default '12 rmk 600 upgrade to protaper bars?

hey just wondering if anyone has swapped they're stock bars to the protaper bars that come on the assaults? I didn't know how hard it would be to swap the switches to the center console like the assaults and pro's. any input would be good, thanks dudes

Check over on snowest there was a guy selling the entire steering post, bars and all controls for what seemed pretty reasonable. Might be a cheap easy way to get it done.

Anytime, I have been sent that way a few times. Those west guys make us look like we run everything stock. Glad it worked out.

My assault obviously came with the pro tapers and I took them off and put on an entire RSI setup and absolutely love them. The riser that I put on (because I am tall) wouldn't tighten down enough to keep the pro tapers from moving when would pull hard on the bars, which is probably what you will do with a mountain sled. It pissed me off enough to change the entire setup and I love the RSI's. Just a thought....
