Bars installed!



Pulling the wires was the worst part.....ended up pulling both set on the throttle side through at the same time.

Looks good! Have you got to ride it and try it out yet? To me, the bars were a huge difference.

Those look like 14-inch. Correct?

I'm staring down the barrel, ready to pull the trigger on a set of 12's... or 14's.... or 12's....

I have adjusted mine 3 times now. The only way to know is to put some miles on it.

Same here, but between 10's or 12's. Almost everyone I ride with has 14's and they aren't comfortable to me. I'm leaning towards 10' Carlini evil apes. It would add about 2"s in height it looks like. They measure 10' from the top of the bottom bar.

Being a smidge under 5'10 I think the 10's will be fine for me.

But OP, they look good.

Any issues with getting the ignition switch out or back in? I've heard things.....

I went back and forth as well....finally decided on the 14"....figured if they were too tall I should have a problem selling and buying 12"s.....just have to get a chance to put some miles on.

Didn't have to take the ignition out....just remember to not turn the ignition on while you're working on it....I did and had the check engine light come on when I was done....did a little research and cleared the codes....seems to all be good now. Engine light hasn't come back on yet.
