Some help with Bars

looking to install 14" Yaffes and i want to price out what i need. Besides the bars, I need a longer brake and clutch cable, wire extensions and what else. Ive heard that since i have ABS that im going to need to take it to Harley to have them bleed the brakes. Am i missing anything? Anyone have any recommendations for parts. trying to fin out how much i can save doing it myself.

Get bars from buky not yaffe. Much better quality and they have a 1.5" diameter. Easier to wire and looks soo much better.

You can bleed the breaks with a Mityvac off of Amazon. Also get Poly Bushings for the risers. DO it now or do it later.

Good Luck!

I bought the 14" Malo's from Buky Bars. Went +6" on the clutch and brake line (Magnum shielding) and purchased the wiring extension kit through Guerrilla. Starting the project this weekend, so we'll see how it goes. Below are some links to start your research. The youtube video shows a quick way to run the harness through your bars and the chain can be found at Lowe's. Yaffee bars look good, but I hear they are a pain to wire because of the burrs inside. Some reasons I chose Buky; inside of their bars are clean and they have awesome customer service. These guys will call you and give updates on the status of your order (who does that??). Bars are made to order, so it takes about 3-4 weeks.

Good Luck!

I have 12" bars and went with +4 on the cables, Magnum shielding makes a nice cable! The clutch was more difficult than the brakes, mainly because of what all has to be removed.

I did not need wire extensions, and don't believe you will either if going with 14's. There is plenty of wire tucked inside.

You can do the brakes yourself. See this thread for info. https://www.roadglide.org/showthread....light=ksarauer

I chose to take the connections apart rather than solder them. I found it fairly easy to do once you get the hang of it.

By doing them yourself, you will save around $1000. and learn lots about your bike if your handy.

Bars

I just did a set of 14'' Buky Malos on Saturday. Go with Namz wire kit. True plug and play. No cutting or soldering. I also went with Harley screaming eagle throttle twist sensor. Much better than monkeying around with the dreaded green connector. 6'' over on everything except TBW. That fit fine. Did ABS brakes myself with no issues as of yet. Do yourself a favor and buy a piece of chain from hardware store or Home Depot. Made pulling very easy. Nothing too thick. Dog leash size. 100 lb rating. Love these God Damn bars. Should of done them months ago.

I just put 10 inch yaffe on mine and they are a big pain in the ass, go with what everyone else is saying buky, or carlini they say are much easier to run the wires through!

Cant find a Namz kit on their website. Does the Screamin eagle sensor eliminate the dreaded green connector?

Namz extensions Suck A$$ I had so many issues with them coming apart I would never buy them again...

Next time I am just cutting the wires and soldering in some regular wire you buy at the hardware store...
