Best to form your own opinion.Go to a bike night or a rally no doubt you'll see something you like.I've had ppl ask about mine(got 16s on both my bikes) i just tell them to go ahead a sit on it and see for yourself. If they don't want to sit on your bike and check it out that just tells me there weren't that serious about it in the first place. I see there's a ton of guys going with the for 14s just so they don't have to change out Brake & Clutch lines. My opinion on that is if you have to reroute that stuff and stretch it out you're not doing it right. And another thing I hear all the time I wish I would have went with the higher ones. Take your time and get it right the first time your wallet will thank you.

I had 14's on my ride as well and switched to 16s. Like them better. Personal preference is all up to your liking

I'm 6'4" tall and went with the 12" F47 bars, very happy so far. For me it was about getting a little taller to get me sitting a little more upright, the 12" bars lined up with the forks do that.

Also look at the way you ride I like the chiseled bars because they are more narrow than the factory 47 bars ...and they are truly 14ís the factory 47 bars donít really measure up

I went with 16" Yaffe monkey bars. They do measure a true 16. But I guess the way I sit on the RG as opposed to my softail, my arms fall lower. If I do it again, I'd go taller, and probably with a true ape hanger.

Go with the 14". I had the 12" and they were okay, but the 14's are much more comfortable.

I'm 6'4" and have the 14" KST Renegades, if I had it to do over again I'd go 12"s. I'd sit on as many different bikes with different bars as I could to make sure what feels right to you.
