Hoping to get some knowledgeable feedback.
Have a 2006 with stock 12" mini apes. Pushed em all the way up and like the feel. Thinking of going taller.
Go on long rides so thinking of 14" Apes for comfort.
Questions:
1. Have you upgraded to 14" Apes. If so can you share pics?
2. Did you stock wiring work, or did you need to upgrade?
Here is the link I found for the Apes:
Burly Brand Gorilla Bars | 501-768 | J&P Cycles
Any advice would be welcomed.
Thanks!!

Hey Dunskit. I noticed that no one else had responded to your post and thought I would throw in my own two cents. Depending on how tall you are, I wouldn't bother with the 14" apes. The reason I say this is because there is barely any difference in height (only 2 inches). I was originally thinking the same thing as you until I rode someone else's bike with 14" apes and there was no noticeable difference in looks or performance. So....I ordered a set of Hill Country Custom 16" apes and I absolutely love them. But again, it depends on how tall you are. I am 6'1" and the 16" apes sit at shoulder level so my arms aren't up in the air (which causes fatigue). Good luck.
