  • Ape/Bagger bars

    What are most running for apes using stock controls with stock cables? Currently have Krome works bars for a Dyna FXDWG but wish they would level off at the controls instead of sloping down. Any suggestions?? Thanks J-C

        Wow, those are with all stock cables and wires?

        Definitely not stock with 16” bars. I think the cables are +12” and I extended the wires and ran them through the bars.

        In my post I just meant the the grip and control assemblies fit fine on the bars. I missed that he asked about cables and wires too. But I wouldn’t let cables and wires from stop me from getting the bar height that I want.

      paul yaffe classic touring bars. they are very comfortable and reasonably priced. (not the yaffe monkey bars) they run 2" taller than stated due to thee way they measure them. You can go up to a 10" bar without new cables. up to 14" with just changing the top brake line. Both sizes would require that you re route the cables inside the top tree. (8" yaffe bar would be 10" tall")
      EDIT: sounds like Tyke was able to get 16" with stock cables
      here are some pics of mine from a previous bike i had. Mine were the 10" (which really = 12") I think mine were about $80
      owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

          I did look at the yaffe bars and not bad pricing at all. I got some different bars on my 650 chopper and love the straightness of the grips. Would like something similar on my bagger bike. Gonna check Parts Canada catalogue to see if available thru my local dealer.

            Drag Specialties Buffalo Bars 1.5" diameter for the Road King fit great but I'm upgrading to 18" bars soon.

              I'm now running 12" KST Mayhems, (pics in Passing Lamps! post)

              I heard it would be tight to run stock cables with 12's and found a new set of stainless for amazingly cheap, so maybe it doesn't apply here, but the grips are level and slightly kicked back at 6 degrees. Most comfortable set of bars I've put my hands on.

                I just used an aftermarket Harley bar dimpled I guess I think that means there's a hole for the wiring, I use the stock control boxes stock grips, and since the new bars don't have threads for the bar and weights, I used bike master bar ends, they come in different anodized colors and they're very inexpensive. You push them in the bar and tighten the Allen key and they expand like a aftermarket freeze out plug.. I can shoot you a picture if you want Click image for larger version
