Hi all, have any of you run the wires through the roll cage from your front light bar? We'd like to hide the wiring inside it. We noticed it had been done on a customized Talon at a dealer but didn't look closely enough to see exactly how it was done. It sure looked nice not having wires and tie straps on the outside of the cage. Suggestions? We have a 1000R.

I cannot add confirmation but I like the idea! The roll cage isn’t solid thus maybe drilling a small exit hole just make sure you seal from moisture intrusion

That's what we were thinking. I believe the entry point to drill out would be just below where the top horizontal roll bar meets the driver's side vertical bar. Rubber grommets would need to be installed at entry and exit points. Our light bar just arrived yesterday. Now we may have to run it outside the bar because of the plug and play system...the plug makes it too large to run inside. ?

I suppose if your adventurous you could cut the plug drill hole just big enough for wire then resolder connector back on once ran the roll bar & sealed

update once complete ?

Hmmm...that's a thought. I'll see if hubby wants to go to the trouble! We both would prefer the clean look without zip ties and wires showing, so maybe he'll give it a shot. We'll see!

There is a hole already in the bung on the drivers side (probably on the other side also) that would only leave a few inches exposed wire into and under the hood.

I've considered the same in regards to running wire through the cage tubes but, zip tied my leads for accessories to it for the time being. This way I'll be able to confirm that I want to keep what I've added and verify that it'll live up to what I throw at it or put it through first. If I do ultimately decide to put it (wires) through the tubes I'll un-pin the connectors rather than cut them and solder. Another thought I've considered is simply installing aftermarket roll bar covers like I've got on my jeep. Not only will it hide any wiring but it would allow for changing accessories out more easily. Also adds additional options for customized looks.

Thanks...we weren't aware roll bar covers existed. I kind of like that idea for future easy access.
