14" Yaffe Monkey Bars?

Looking for any info! I was at Las Vegas bike fest and spoke with Phil from Yaffe and sat on a beautiful RG with 12" monkey Bars. I believe the 14's will fit me a little better (6'4"). Anyone running these and have any thoughts on me doing the install myself? I was leaning towards the Outlaws before I sat on their bike. These were VERY comfortable after riding with the stock bars from Tucson, plus the looks are awesome. If they honor the discounts they offered at the show, I will be ordering! Second question to everyone is whether to go black or chrome? Leaning towards black just to balance everything.

P.S. anyone close that knows the tricks on install, I'll buy the beer and pay for your gas to help haha

I changed the bars on my bike, the main trick I learned was to be patient, and use wire pulling lube for running the wires internally, but I don't have 14" bars. What color bike do you have? Show some pics so we can give an opinion on what color bars.....

14's or 16's?

Remember ,...
Yaffe has his bikes raked and stretched, which I'm sure Phil mentioned, if ya can get past the 'WOW' factor,from just sitn on one of Yaffe's Scoots!From Paint to Wheels to Rake and stretch, Baggernation builds sum Sweet Ass Machines!!!
I'm 6' 3 to 4" myself, and I've got 10's or soon to be had 10's, cause they should be comeing off this week to sell to a member on the 4/m.
But sounds like your in the same boat as me, wondering between 12's or 14's.
Ive called Brady from Baggernation, and asked for a measurement from Tip to Tip. Being measureing , bottom rite tip to the top of rite tip. My 10's measure 13 1/4 ".
16's measure 19 1/4 inches.
So I'm figureing 6" difference, just in height, tip to tip, from 10's to 16's.
Soooooo, if my figuring is correct, 12's from tip to tip should be 2" higher , in height,...14's 4" and 16's 6,....if ya follow.
I'm thinkn 16's!!!

Hopefully I added this pic right. Thanks for the reply's!

dbell - is there a specific lube used?

Neano-Thanks for the measurments! I will be out in the garage tonight trying all of these measurments. Ya the bike was beautiful and I could believe he was so open to me throwing a leg over it. I get really uncomfortable sitting on other peoples bikes.

I still have not heard back from Phil (maybe they gave him a couple days off for working the event all weekend in Vegas). I really like doing business with the same person that spent time to go over their product, but I'm getting excited and dont know how much longer I can wait haha.

I personally went with the 10" chrome monkey bars on my vivid black RGC. Hope the pic below helps.

I put 12" on my bike and wish I had gone with 14" I am 6' 2" and the 12"s were great until I decided that the ultra seat I put on was extremely uncomfortable. I plan on adding at least 2Ē to the seat height and now really wish I had the 14ís.

6'4" running 12+ Paul said they were 13, anyhow If I was doing it again I'd go for the 14" just because I have long arms (from climbing trees for 23 years).
The 12+ is very comfortable as for doing the job yourself DO IT! you will have a snag or two but trust me you will save $ and respect yourself in the morning. I ran my stock sleeve in mine. I have the extension kit still sitting in the box. So if you need one PM me I'll cut you a brake, just find out what he wants 1st.

Thank you all for your replys, I still have not heard back from the salesman. I might just havta order from whoever answers the phone there next time I call. I am 6'4" so that is why I am looking at the 14's. I also have been looking at other sites and Phat Performance has them cheaper if Yaffe won;t honor the price they told me. Has anyone done business with them? If I order from them what size "supersize" kit do I need to order for the cables? They call the kits 12" or 15"...

Frodoe thanks for offering your kit for a deal. I always like buying from guys on this forum if I need something (gives us more money for other additions ).

Yes, it is the beautiful Sedona orange, I knew the first time I saw one in the flesh that it was the color for me at least once it was blacked out that is.
