12 in Yaffe with only minor changes!

Hey All
I know there are a lot of threads out there with this kind of stuff, but I just completed my handlebar switch and did ALL the work myself. I did not change out the brake lines OR the clutch cable. I did extend all of the wires (after routing them) just to make life easier.
Are Yaffe bars a b#*ch to route? Yup. Is it possible? YUP!

I think some folks will want to lengthen the clutch cable for aesthetic purposes...but I did not and it works just fine....bars turn left and right no prob...brake line has PLENTY of length.

Just thought I'd share!

Well crap, and I went with the 10's just so I didn't have to install new clutch and brake lines...Oh well, still happy with them...I did notice that after I rerouted my clutch cable, I had room to spare, had a feeling 12's would have worked.

Good work, by the way, and let's see some pics!

I'm ordering my 12" yaffe's today. I still think they are the best looking bar out there on a Road Glide.

Silly question but,

How can you judge if want the 12s or the 14s without having another bike to sit on or the bars to kind of get the feel for them.

I have this delimna now trying to judge the size I need.

tks

Ride On!

i think if you take a good look at the Malo or Mad Doggers by BukyBars.com, you might change your mind. I could be wrong though. Different strokes for different folks. Just sayin'.
