HD Fat Apes and SE Stage II Torque

After many diuscussions carried out during December, I have finally completed phase 1 of my winter project in my 2017 M8 RGU.

- 15" HD Fat Apes (I am 6'3")
- SE Stage II Torque over my St I with Street Canons

Comments:

1. I like a lot the bars, the way they handle the bike. I feel I've got much more control of the bike. I also feel very confortable. No problems with the possition of my wrists. I just love them in this sense.

2.- The dealer did not remove the pin, so the bars are too much backwards. I have no problem with how confortable they are, but I would rather prefer they were a bis more forward as they would look cooler. I think I would also prefer my arms a bit more straight than so bended.

3.- Stage II is great. I love the sound of the bike now and I can tell the difference. No huge, but there is an important improvement. They bike goes now much more relaxed at medium speed, feeling there are a lot of extra power left if I need it.

Bars look good. I think you are right about the bars. They would look cooler rolled forward some.

Bars and pipes look killer!

Pull the pin brother, rock em forward till there cozy!

If your nervouse about warranty, put the pin back in before you service. PIA I know but you will get the best of both worlds.

Thanks Madmat, either I do what you say or I will change my bars for others. First I will try pulling the pin out as you say.

I have those same bars, (my opinion) I think the bars are pulled back a bit much. I would definitely pull the pin! Otherwise I love these bars over stock. I also like the traditional bend that the bar has!
