  • Another Ape Hanger Question

    I’m looking at going with some new Ape Hangers. My question is, since I will be getting a fairing for the bike, I understand that I will need pull back risers but when selecting the bars do I need to also select the bagger style? I’m looking at a couple of different bars, the dominator cycle Meathook Apes which I can get in both styles bagger or normal. Also looking at some of the KST Kustom Apes…..so for those of you running a fairing along with Apes how are yours set up? Thanks everyone…..

    Depends on the fairing, All I was concerned about was making sure the lean angle of the fairing was about 30 degrees back for high speed stability, no apes though, stock bars with 4 up 1 1/2 back risers.

      Which fairing do you have? I’m looking at the Vector Batwing/USA Trailer fairing. Currently I’m running stock bars but they are on 6" risers turned around to move them forward that 1-1/2…..I like the position forward but want a taller bar and with the taller bar wouldn’t probably need the push forward….

      That bike had a Wide Open Customs Fairing, I think bagger style apes would work best for you on stock riser, more stable.

    I think some folks have used Royal Star risers which have a little bit of a kickback.

      Yes, those are short and stable and give you little pullback clearance Clarence.

    If you buy Bagger style bars you normally don't need risers. They have a offset in the bars to clear the fairing and also better wrist angle.

      Still got to clamp the bar, I guess you mean stock risers?

      So possibly use stock risers with bagger bars, but might still need pullback risers depending on the fairing then? And vice versa if I have pullback risers I might be able to use none bagger bars….

      I slotted my fairing mounting bracket to get it to sit lower on the headlight, too many variables until you actually get the fairing mounted.

    This is what u get with USA Trailer Store fairing. If you don't mind fabbing a bit you can make it look good too.

      Don’t mind doing some fab work…..I guess I will wait to get bars after I get the fairing……I was thinking going the other direction and get bars first but I think that would be a mistake……

    Another really bad looking install.

      Not laid back enough or down on the headlight.

    My own mess before I slotted my brackets, notice the black foam to lessen my pain.
