Installed my Paul Yaffe 12" Monkey Bars

So after reading many threads, on many forums, watching several video's, and the price given to me by the dealer (7 hours labor at 105.00 per hour) I decided to give it a try. I have worked on bikes for over 30 years so obviously I am no stranger to it, but I have never had to run wiring thru the handlebars before. Well, I have to say I was very lucky to have my amazing fiance help me.

She agreed to model for me. The bars are very nicely made and the chrome is deep and very nicely done.

The hardest part was running the lines thru them. This is where I lost my patience but she kept at it and got them done. My man card is missing from my wallet now so I will have to do stuff to recover

Of course it snowed today so the test ride is on hold. I also need new grips.


But I cannot wait!! The stock bars do suck. My wrist were turned on every ride.

Anyway, anyone on the fence should look into new bars. The 12" Yaffe was good with the stock lines and wires. I had to do some rerouting, but all was good.

Oh trust me, I am really on the losing end of that one When I saw the bill, I told her that I could buy another motorcycle for the kind of money.. I lost *sigh* but really in the end it is a win. She caulked the bath room at the same time!!

Anyway, I cannot wait to get the bike out and give it a try.
