    Upgrading Fatboy Comp shifters.

    I'm not a fan of the stock grip shifters that came stock on the comp, they feel cheap. I was thinking about upgrading, would something like the XO's be worthwhile or would there to much difference at all?

    Thanks

    Grip shifters vs. trigger shifters is really all about personal preference IMO. If you want triggers, get them, it'll feel like an upgrade just based on the fact that you dislike the grip shifters.

    Thank you. I should have clarified, I like the grip shifters I just don't like how the stock ones feel. I was hoping upgrading to XO's would help.

    Curious about that too, is it a plug and play upgrade? No extra parts besides shifters?

    Thanks for starting the thread.

    You'll probably need a new cable, but your new shifters should come with them.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.
