10" or 8.5"?

I just bought the 10" versions but haven't installed yet. Just laying them up on the bike they seem to be awesome. I will be installing in a couple weeks.

the 513 are the same as stock, just a couple inches wider.....most guys usually need a little more rise or pullback, like the 515

yes the grip position is the same....after an hour of riding i would develop a pain between my shoulder blades....i changed to the 515 , which is 2" taller and a few inches wider and it stopped the problem...the grip position ,to me, is natural..unlike the wheelbarrow effect of some of the others....i think its the 517 that are turned....no cable changes are required with the 515, and they are 1-1/4" so you can internally wire them...

Thanks for the pic. They don't look anything like stock. Other than rise. Hmmm


slaterman5: My big problem is with wrist numbness. I don't have any problem with shoulder or back pain due to the stock bars. Do you think switching to either the 513 or 515 would help me???
