Rob,
Try the search function. This has been an ongoing discussion. There is even a current thread in the General section. The bottom line is this. Geeto thinks clubman bars are gay. Some of us agree with him some of the time and some of us don't some of the time. Yo will need to figure out what will work for you on your bike. Don't cheap out and consider all of your options.
As far as getting your old controls off of your old bars, just work at it patiently and you will be able to pull the wires with the controls out of your old bars. Don't cut or unscrew your wires. After ou have them out, notch the controls and run the wires externally on your new bars like you did on your RD.

Do a search. Just about every CB350 question has been asked and answered here.

OK Rob,
If you can't make the switch assemblies fit through those little oval openings in the bars maybe you can pull the wires out the other direction. The wires stay attached to the switches and pull out of the bars. The free ends of the wires with the bullet connectors will enter the center of the bars and as you keep pulling they will come out the little oval holes that were under the switch gear and you will have them dangling in the wind ready for installation on the appropriate bar of your choice. Don't pick clubmans, Geeto thinks they are gay, and you might become guilty by association. If you are really gay, then that is your choice and I am ok with it.

Speaking of gay, I just found out that a really good friend of mine and former roomate from college times is gay. I haven't been in touch with him for a while and come to find out he has had the same partner for 8 years. I mean we were racing buddies for years and I didn't have a clue. Maybe if I cared more about this stuff I could have figured it out. I dated his sister and everything. My wife says she suspected it when she met him at our wedding 10 years ago. Am I clueless or what?

Texy,
I don't know where he met his partner, but we were club racers with WERA back then. What does that say about WERA? I haven't raced with them since 91. Of course since you just got married I guess you must be straight???
I really need to ask him when he figured out he was gay. Maybe he was as clueless about it as me. I just don't understand. I mean I don't care one way or the other, but I figure I should have been able to guess.
