Ordered Carlini's, sending back Paul Yaffe's

Thought I'de share my experience with Paul Yaffe and Carlini for anybody looking to get new handlebars from either. 7 weeks ago I bought a new '13 Road Glide Ultra and that day ordered black 16" PJ Monkey bars. After 4.5 weeks they finally arrived I was so excited to put them on and after looking at them I realized the powder coat and welding on the front left lower bend is fuct up. Should have been caught before shipping especially considering they are about the most expensive bars out. 3 days of calling and emailing finally get a call saying they will see if they can bump another customer and over night me some as my bike is currently torn apart for new bars, and he will call back with shipping info. A week later and still no call back and I am sitting with crap bars.

So...I started looking closer at the 2nd and 3rd choices - Carlini Gangsters and Buky Bars Mad doggers. I decided on top of the fact I dont want to give PJ any of my money or put any of their product on my bike that the 1.5" offerings from these other makers I actually prefer them. So I ordered a set of Carlini's and spoke with Rex and he is overnighting them tonight so I can get them on before the holiday weekend when I plan to ride a ton! I have heard a lot more good thigns about Carlini compared to Paul Yaffe, dont know why I didnt just go right for em.

Will post pics when I am done. Also doing Kury floorboard extensions and HD adjustable hw pegs. PUMPED!

I went with Carlini for the very reason of a 2+ month wait with Yaffe. On top of them treating me like absolute shit on the phone (I asked the lead time on monkey bars). Drove my fat ass to Carlini and walked out with my bars the same day. ImageUploadedByMO Free1369203835.950247.jpg

I put a set of Yaffe bars on a buddy's RGC this past winter. Worst quality bars I've ever seen.
