    Looking good Lug. I’m trying to decide between 14" and 16" apes. I’m thinking about the DNA Monster Apes I like the looks of them.

      Im 5’8. 14” apes fit nice. And the wiring isn't that bad.

      My 18's fit me great but I have short legs and long torso. I do have them angled back a bit though so I can lean back on longer rides. It doesn't look as "cool" but it fits perfect for me.

      I’m 5’10 so I’m thinking 14s for sure but possibly 16s also

    Anything 14 and over and your gonna need throttle and brake and clutch cables and maybe extend electrical... PITA! BUT IT SURE LOOKS COOL

      Look cooler with 1 throttle cable. You don't need the other one. I have been running with 1 for 5 years.

        I got the bars and cables as a set for free for doing some labor on another bike. If I were to buy it myself I would only buy the one trottle cable.

          I just got done with 14s on mine. I'm close to 6'1", 32-34 inseam (depends on the pants LOL). I've got the bars up pretty high- just about shoulder high. Stock electrical was fine length wise. Seems like I spent more time than necessary bleeding the brakes. I don't recall it having taken that long when I put R1 calipers and an RC51 master on my old FJ1200. But it all works nice!

            Just be sure that the bars are really tight in the clamps. If you can sit in the seat and move them by pushing or pulling, that's not good. In a panic stop, you'll be exerting more force on those bars than you can just pushing on them, your entire body weight and inertia will be pushing on them. If they suddenly move forward you could be in big trouble. Taller bars means more leverage to move them within the handlebar clamp. Staking them is the safest bet.

                Yep for now... When I finish the red one I might sell. Not sure
