Pictures of RG with W502 bars

I have been looking to put a set of WildOne W502 bars on my 2010 RG. Wondering if any one has pics of these bars installed. I am back and forth between the W502 and the W515's. Was just thinking the 10" ape might look better than the 12.5" apes. I have sat on two bikes with the 12.5" apes and they are very comfortable to me. What are you thoughts....

I've got the 515s and love them. Much more comfortable position than stock... 10" works for me @ 6'3"; never tried anything taller.

Crusty,
I have seen the pic of your bike with the W515's in another thread and it had me leaning toward the 10". I have seen two bike up close with the W502's and for only being 12.5" they look tall. I am 6'2" so the W515's may be a good fit for me. Thanks and sharp looking RG. J

Stevo, very-cool and does look real comfy. Jason, these are 10's. I no there not the kind of bars you've mentioned but its a perspective of a 10" bar. I'm 6'3" with long arms. Dress Shirt long sleeve I like a 38" or 40" I should of went w/12" bars but I never imagined any bike I ever owned would have "Apes" on it. I've got Chainsaw to thank for that. lol, and also Jason, didnt mean to offend by not replying to your question about the bars w/my first comment, and commenting directly bout Crustys pics.I just get captivated by some things! lol

Thanks for posting the pic SteveO, although now I am on the fence again with what size bars to run. The 12.5" looks great on your bike. I am sure that if I buy the 10" I will wish I went with the 12.5". Did you have to replace wires and cables? J

Jason, the 12.5" did need longer clutch and brake cables 6" I think. I would email wild ones on both sizes and see what they say on cables. They responded to me usually the same day.

go with the 12.5" and get some sleep!
