Dude,... Your pic is a little sideways! Hard to focus! LOL! You'll be fine w/TBW, and all cables. Did you order from Yaffe?

I installed my monkey bars over the weekend. Totally changed the way my bike feels.

I think your right,.. those look like the Electra glide version. Would be nice for people with shorter arms though!!

Such is the rule of honor.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe we should team up and sell these bars for people with short arms. Ha!

That's the first set of Yaffe Monkey Bagger bars I've seen on a RG. Don't look bad but I like the OEM's better on the RG's.

I wish I wasn't too much of a chicken to cut my wires ....

I installed a set of 12" oem Monkey bars last week and ran everything through the bars and the best tip I can give is buy a replacement throttle by wire from HD. The stock one on my 2010 had a big green connector halfway down and I couldnt get that to pass by the 90degree turn. The new TBW was one piece.. Bought the new TBW and was done in an hour....
