Alternative to Yaffe's Monkey Bars?

Do you guys know of any bars that look similar to yaffe's monkeybars? I've been reading horror stories of how difficult the bars are to install (getting the cables inside), as well as the razor sharp edges in the bars that can damage wires. The last thing I want happening are my controls failing while riding down the freeway.

I'm really feeling the angled bars on the road glide... but im just not confident in internal characteristics of the yaffes.

Looking at going 10 or 12 inch.

My Yaffe's are shit. 2nd pair with powder coat issues. They're not getting them clean enough before powder coat. I'm not going through switching them again. I'll wait until it completely fails and redo them. The knurled part is off center too. You live and learn overpriced for what you get if you ask me. Chrome may not have issues because of the various baths they get.

2015 RGS 103" Denim Black, Drago's 2:1, SE Heavy Breather, SEPST, Tuned. That will do for now.

That's what you get when you buy something from someone who is more interested in his own image than the quality of his product. And just my $.02, but I think his bikes are ucking fugly...
