I ordered from DR.V-Twin November 2 and after stuck in Canada Custom for about week they finally arrived in great shape even though the box was beat all to h3LL. I can harley wait to get 'em installed even though I won't be able to test ride now for about 4 or 5 months.

Thanks to Drew for hooking me up with a great deal.

I may have to call on some experienced members when I get into the install for internal wiring tips. I think some one did a great pictorial and instructions on internal wiring and install of the beauties. BUT first I have to finish the house mods for the wifey....paint, counter tops, sink, etc....all part of the trade for bike mods.
cheers!

Keep the faith man, they'll show up. Mine are the 10" bars and were in stock at time of order. Did you order chrome or Black?


Here's a shot with a tape measure

Now I have to find the time for install...I have all winter I guess:cool:

Hey Joke
They were $360 bones PLUS shipping ($45) plus Canada Customs($31.02) Why Customs needed a slice is beyond me. Oh ya they threw in a Dr T-shirt. I haven't got my credit card bill yet to see what the exchange rate was but I think it was close to par. I had more than enough set aside in my budget (at least thats my story and I'm sticken' to it)

BUT before I do any thing I need to clean up the garage so I can install the bars. Some of you will know what I'm talking about. Weather seal/insulate, put the heat on, put the coolers away, roll out the lawnmower to the shed in the back yard and roll in the snow blower. Then I'll have room to get busy. Bunch of pieces to come off for the powder coater along with the fairing removal to install MY NEW BARS...woohoo!!!:D:D:D

Thanks - same here, winterize/put up the power washer, put the lawn chairs away, get the Xmas tree down, sell the Vette to make room in the garage to work on the bike; I already brought the heater in from the shed cuz I had to work on the car (multi-switch went out). Those bars are too expensive for my taste; was hoping Dr V-T was a lot cheaper! :D Guess it's still the Heritage Bars then...

Oh ya...and get the snow blower out too!!!!

Hey Joke,

Road6Custom bars are only $149 if you like the looks of them. I bought 9 inch ones, but I'd go at least 11 if I ever did it again. There are lics of them in my album.

Thanks, those levers are cool - matching the bars and all. Ya, Road6Custom has everything on 15% sale now so the bars would only be $123. But I didn't see any 11" ones. I'll look some more...:D

Sorry to hear about the delay you guys are having. I ordered through Dr. V-Twin and they didn't charge my card until they were shipped. I think they must have an arrangement with Yaffee for faster shipping. Keep the faith.

Well, I guess I am not the only one then. I also ordered from Dr, V-Twin and have not been charged yet. I also can not get any info about my order through Yaffe. They tell me to contact the company I purchased from. Seems like Yaffe doesn't really give a crap about customer satisfaction

I think if Yaffee was the only one that had his hands on the product we would see or should I say FEEL a little different. I'm NOT taking anyones part here, by no means!
But when you get DUMB-ASSes underneath you, and they are NOT being TRUTHFULL w/the Man thats putn his stamp on the product, that can cause sum SERIOUS DRAMA! Like I said,...and dont cum down on me for sayn what I'm sayn,... I've x-perianced PERSONALLY,....and I understand what you and everybody else is stating.
Employee THEFT is the WORST THEFT you can get!,....whether it cums in the form of product going to the customer damaged, late, or whatever the case mite b, Yaffee himself is pretty cool. I've cussed and hollored myself, but it is what it is!

Yeah, I hear ya. That kind of sucks that he has to deal with that whether or not he knows it. If you say he is a good dude then I beleive ya with all things considered (I remember your fender situation.) Oh well, I will just have to keep waiting.

Waiting,....

That should be Yaffe's moto. If you want a Yaffe part, and the company your buying from doesnt have it on the shelf,.. get ready to learn what patience is. They sure don't get in a hurry out there in Arizona.

I've never met the Guy. I've talked to him via email,...SEVERAL TIMES! and over the phone,...SEVERAL TIMES!

I'm not taking his part,...believe me! and futher more I'll bet ya that if you call him and ask him "Hey do you know(my name) he would say that he does." But would also say F/U (my name)! He has!, w/my buddys that went to Sturgis this year and he even said in our last email conversation that "We made a special picture for you, have you seen it?" They all gathered around the camera and flipped me off saying "F/U (my name)" as the pic was being taken.lol!

He told me when I ordered my rear end from him 3 to 6 weeks. I changed up on a thing or too and he was very cool w/it. Didnt bitch, gripe or get frustated w/changing what I wanted. It just took twice as long as he said and yes I was just as impatient as the rest of us have been. I tried not to show it but, and did a pretty good job of it, for the most part, but when my stuff finally arrived and the fender was damaged, I LOST IT! not totally but good enough to let him no how I felt!

Yaffe made it rite by me though, so I cant bitch, and NOW gotta take what I put out, to a certain degree! Aint nobody perfect, me by NO MEANS, and I can only speak for my actions.

I look foward to meeting him though, I wanted to in Louisville Ky., a couple weeks ago, but couldnt go due to my Sons Football obligations. May b I'll get to meet him in Columbus in Febuary and by him a Drink- break bread- and make medicine. Theres always things that cum along w trying our PATIENCE! I'm glad that I'm still around to have this happen,...U-NO?
