My ride: 2015 Road Glide
Question: I currently have 13" Road6Customs standard apes on my ride. I was able to install these bars without any brake, clutch, TBW or switch extensions. Before this spring is over I'm planning on changing my bars to;
16" FMB Choppers PHATTY BLAZED handlebars
12" PHATTY BLAZED CUSTOM HANDLEBARS FOR 2015 and Up HARLEY ROAD, Harley Custom Handlebars- Custom ape hangers
16" FMB Choppers MONSTER MAYHEM handle bars
12" MONSTER MAYHEM 1-1/2 BARS 2015 UP HARLEY ROAD GLIDE, Harley Custom Handlebars- Custom ape hangers
My question is specifically for you guys that have put 16" bars on your 2015+ Road Glides. I'm going to order my Magnum Shielding brake and clutch lines and I'm trying to determine what lengths I need for each. I contacted Magnum and the CS agent told me I'd have to measure. I explained to her that I can't measure with the new bars yet because I don't have them yet. I want all of the clutch, brake and electrical extensions in hand before I start the project so that I can complete it in one day and not impact my riding days that much.
I have the options of;
+2" (which for all purposes I don't think will be enough based on what I see with my current 13" bars)
+4" (which based on some back tracking detective work on Magnum Shielding's website appears to be the length in the kits they sell for specific height bars / bikes)
+6" (I currently have a Magnum Shielding 31" upper brake line already installed and it is way too long for my 13" bars and think I'll still have too much slack even with my 16" bars)
So if anyone can tell me what you used for your 16" bar installations I'd greatly appreciate it. Again, please don't tell me to measure. The lead time on the bars is 7-10 days because of powder coating, and the lead time on the Magnum Shielding cables is 3-4 days. If I can't get in the ball park I'm down at least 1 1/2 weeks if not longer waiting on bars & measurements.
Thanks a bunch.
As a side note........... Curious as to what the community thinks about each of the bars I'm mulling over. I know it's my ride, so most everyone is probably going to say "pick what you like". But in this case I'm having a hard time deciding because both of the bars I'm looking at really strike my fancy.
