Wild One Chubbys ~Reapers

Still waiting on my Factory 47 14s but weighing my options. From what I understand the F47s are measured from the peaks to the bottom side of the bars so 14s are actually 12s.
The way Wilds ones are measured is from the center line plane of the throttle to the bottom of the bars.
So I'm thinking the Wild Ones 12s would end up being the equivalent to the F47s 14s...Does anyone have any experience with the Wild 1s Reaper bars? Does the OEM hoses & wiring work? Specifically, with the 12s or 14s?
I called today & left a voice mail but that's as far as I got.
I'm suppose to hear back from F-47 Wednesday so that will be the deciding factor for me. It's been 3 weeks & they still have no idea when they'll receive their next shipment from their plating company.
Leaving August 3rd for Sturgis & would like to have the bars installed a week or so before we leave to make sure I have no issues on the road... I sure hope Factory 47 comes through....

A buddy of mine has the Reapers and he likes them a lot.. but I will say this, he rode my bike last week (I have the 16" Malo bars from F47), and he said hands down they were way better. Said he would order himself a pair no question and would have done it the first time if he had ridden both in advance.
I rode his and they were a little short for my liking (he has the 14"), but I mean they were fine I had no issues, but I agree as well that there's no way I would trade them for my F47's.
Not sure if this helps but figured I would chime in lol. We are both 6'0 tall, he has the 14s and I have the 16s.
Pic of mine included.
Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, Im waiting but very impatient. Riding to Sturgis this year and really not interested in that long of a ride with the OEM bars. I REALLY hope they get them to me in time!!

I had the 14" Reaperz on my 2016 and put the 14" F47 on my 2018. Similar in height, but I think the Reapers do run slightly higher. I had 12" outlawz on my 2013 and went with 14 on the new bikes because I wanted a littler more. The 12s were good, but 14 is better.

I like the looks of the F47 better, the curve is awesome. However, the Reaperz were more comfortable to me because of the narrower width. The F47 aren't uncomfortable by any stretch, but the Reaperz just felt better. If the F47 was any wider they'd be uncomfortable and I'd pull them and put the Reaperz back on. Quality on both is excellent, the F47 are easier to wire because of 1.5 vs. 1.25". I'm, 6' with pretty long arms, slouch when I ride and have a Corbin seat that moves me back and down slightly from stock. If your arms are any shorter than mine the width of the F47 may be an issue for you, I believe the 12" F47 are slightly narrower.

I still have the 14" Reaperz if you're interested let me know.

Freedom isn't free, remember to thank a vet.
