Thanks for that link, Zeta..

I was racking my brain last night trying to remember their name so I could put them on here as well and compare prices.

That link has a set with bars and all cables for $329.95.

I'm gonna go the Burly way and get the cable kit for $179.95 and use the HD mini apes that are $69.

That's only $250.00..

when I priced this out using all HD parts.. I was pushing $500.00.

I just didn't want to ask about them in a fresh thread and be told to search for it because it was covered three years ago. Just trying to get some info bro.

S3ven,
I put a kit of the Burly narrow glide 12 in apes and the 14 in cable kit (I put the bars on top of the stock 6 in riser on my 2002 1200 custom). Easy kit, great instructions, very simple. The bars are PERFECT! Look on ebay tho, I got the entire kit from 2 different sellers for $300, going through Burly after shipping and all it would have been over $400. The absolute best upgrade I've done so far. hit me up on PM if you have any questions when you decide to do it.

for sure brother. like I said those bars are the best upgrade I've done so far, and while you are at it, when changing the bars, get some new bushings too, polyurethane, def a good $40 bucks well spent.
