Long Rides I havnt done,yet! 262 miles is the longest in a day,so far. I never felt BETTER! Twisties? Once you get used to them, you'll be lookn for more twisties than you ever have b/4! Its like a another deminsion in riding w/these bars.I love them! I've got a thread on install, under "Not as Easy as it Looks"

Any issues on these bars with abs? I know harley says on the heritage bars not for use with abs, even though there is no difference in the stock bars (between abs and non-abs). Just wanna make sure before I dish out the bucks. I do like the way they look!

I didn't have any issues with the abs, stock brake line is plenty long enough. I got my bars off ebay, motorcitycycles if i remember correctly. Had them within 10 days to Canada. I removed a set of heritage bars prior to these, the yaffe bars are way more comfortable without the goofy kick up at the grips.

Did you install the previous set of Heritage bars? if you did,at that point did you lengthen the cables? Those monkeys look way longer than my OEM set. I'm 5' 10" and need to bring the bars back to me a little, so I guess i'm asking if I were to go with those am I going to have to re-route cables?

Do the bars obstruct the view of the gauges?

On my 08 there were no cable or wiring changes needed. The clutch cable is a little tight but o.k.

It's a royal PITA, but looks tidy when it's done! You have too take off the factory sheathing, it's impossible otherwise.

I decided to bite the bullet and pay the install on mine.
