HD Shock, im only 5'6" and am completely satisfied with them and a huge improvement over the stock bars. I had my stock bars pulled back as close as they could come to me, and still found myself reaching for them and had bad shoulder pains. Ive put most of my miles on with the stock bars. I havent had any shoulder pains with these Santees. I always heard people say they wish they would have gone taller when buying apes, so I figured, i would go a little taller. The added height on these bars for me, when setting them with the angle of the forks, allow the bars to come back closer to me. I think slowglide2989 is 6 ft or taller and he runs his bars straight up and down. One benefit of these bars is that they are designed to be ran at any angle, Comfortable pulled back as well as pushed forward. I too had a hell of a time deciding what to get. I really wanted something with a lot of pullback. These are the bars. I really wanted the Chubbys outlaws 12"s but decided there just wasnt enough pullback on those bars. My dealer did the install of the bars, but they told me they didnt have any troubles with them. Im sure the pull wire is helful otherwise they wouldnt put it in there. I think slowglide2989 installed his own, so you may want to PM him and ask about how that went.
