I'm considering these for my next set of bars. They look wide though, any additional photos? How do ya like em? How's the pullback & adjustability? Does the fairing still deflect a reasonable amount of wind? I know, questions questions, just want to make sure I get it right the first time, if that's possible....TIA!

Lots of great lookin bars on here though, so many choices!

So far, in love them. I only got about 50 miles on then yesterday after the install. After looking at the pics again, they do look wide, but it may be the angle. I will try and get some more taken. As far as adjustability, I have then rolled to me as far as the pin allows because I am only 5 5. There is plenty of room to roll them forward of you like. My hands are just above the fairing, so I do feel the wind on them, which doesn't matter in florida. I rode a 13 streetglide with yaffee 10 Monkey bars and these feel almost identical, except the 1.5 inch bars looks so much better.

Perhaps RGKen will chime in, he took it for a test spin and he is 6ft plus.

My bars are due tomorrow like I said. But poly bushings won't be in til Friday. I'd prefer to have the poly bushings. But they're easy enough to pop in after.

RIGHT on! Start her young. If you do the install yourself, I HIGHLY recommend you review the Factory 47 14"install video on youtube. Its rare, I wrench on my own bike, hell I don't even change my fluids, but with the help of the video, I removed the bars in 30 mins.

The throttle side was the only challenge to the wiring. The chain technique he uses is the best way to pull. We tried several options and the chain was the best. Feed the wire and then pull the slack with the chain. Don't push and pull together! I only removed the wires from the big molex connector like he did, but left the 2 prong connector alone and just feed it through.

The black plastic piece under the gauges that he cuts out and removes, I left in place. I had plenty of slack for the wires to reach and plug in (mine are 12" bars). It took less than 30 minutes to re-attach the bars after the wiring was complete.

Be patient when pulling the wires....have beer available. Good luck.

Yeah, I've posted that video a few times around the forum. Lol. I've also changed a handful or more bars on various bikes. TBW connector disassembled and stock bars stripped ready to wire up new bars. This set is taking a bit longer cause my 3yo just had to help daddy trick out his "momo" lol. She loves to help her daddy
