Looking for any experience with Klock's Klip Hanger 10" for 15+ RGs. I'm really nervous about installing new bars and not liking them once installed. Need more comfort than stock and want the bars a tad closer to me as well as a bit higher. The dimensions give these more pullback than stock bars and most other aftermarket bars I have seen. Anyone have experience?

I don't have any experience with those particular bars but I did have a set of 'helibars', which I think are the same concept (they may have more adjustability than the kliphangers, I'm not sure). I loved them and got a ton of compliments and inquiries. The wires are not ran internally however but my indy wrapped the wires in a cloth-type wrap and they looked great.

Not cheap but I got mine for about half price, used and like new, on Ebay. If I find a used set that will fit on my 17 I may invest in them again, although I'm pretty comfortable with the factory bars on the 17

After posting I read more about the kliphangers and watched a few videos on youtube. It looks like they can be wired internally if I'm not mistaken. Also, if you order them or they come higher than you like, you can just cut the top of the bar down to a preferred height. Interesting. I may have to keep an eye out for a used set of those instead :smile:

I have a used set of 12's unfortunately they're for a '13. Yes they can be wired internally. It's not as easy as it might sound because of the way they're built. The adjustablity is limited also if they're wired internally. If you turn back too far you'll be pinching wires. I needed 14's so I removed them. Didn't really like the way they looked anyway. Thought they looked good at first but after a few thousand miles I didn't like them anymore. The knuckles were anodized aluminum and one was a shade or two off from the other.

I liked the idea of them as well and looked at installing them on my 17RGS but heard nightmares about internal wiring and they are a bit pricey. Narrowed it down to two manufactures, Road 6 or KST, just have to decide on height (i like bars on the low side but everyone says I will regret it so now second guessing myself). I have rode my electraglide with the factory bars for 14 years and have never thought about changing them but I dont like the wrist angle on the 2017. Road 6 has bars in 11" that I may go with. I'm same as you, want to make sure I get the right bars the first time. Most guys are running 12" or 14"'s but I am not a fan of the tall apes.

You have any pics Bucket? Not many of us it seems that go for lower bars. I feel they get your weight more forward and motorcycles handle better that way
