I had 14" f47 bars on my 17 RGS no problem. This winter I will be putting them on my 18 RGS, I will be getting the extensions for the left side, it works but its snug.

Factory 47 has a video of a 16" install.

I am sure others will jump in.

In all honesty, it depends on the brand. Different companies measure different spots on the bars for some reason. Factory 47 14" fit. I have Road6 13", and have no more clutch hose to go higher. The style of the bars makes a difference, but realistically, roughly 13" give or take. So most bars that are 12, 13, or 14 should fit with no issues.

I am looking at straight jacket bar and have a few of questions.
1. Pull back shows 6", how does work for you as far as arms extended vs OEM bars
2. Are these a true 14" bar?
3. Can you measure the top of the base to the top of the bar
4. Post some pics

Thanks

no extensions for my 12" Yaffe on a '18 RGS, and I think 14" would have been ok also but nothing above that in the Monkey Bars

Thanks, I love them, tried several different styles in Sturgis and like the width and look of them, they were worth the wait for me

If I knew how to post larger pics I would
