    Factory 47 Assault Bars..

    Has anyone here installed a set of 12" Factory 47 Assault bars on a 14+ Street Glide? I'm looking at doing a set in Black, but can't find any pictures of how the bars sit on the bike for 12". I've seen 10's, 14's and 18's which are none of the ones I'm looking for of course, hahaha. Not a lot of info out there about these bars on Street Glides, I see a lot of guys running the bars on Road Glides and they seem to love them. Any input and or pictures would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to get my order in so they can be at the house when I return from deployment, looks like they are taking roughly 6 weeks or so to build.

    Damn $430, and 20 days before shipment, do they atleast send someone over to give you a happy ending after the install atleast?

    They are nice looking bars, and seem very well thought out with the size step up.

    why do manufacturers still refer to the 14+ with "cables" and its not the wiring they seem to be referring to, and does anyone offer off the shelf hoses besides harley?

    I think 430 bucks and 20 days is a good deal for custom made bars. Had a buddy that ordered Yaffe MBB's and waited almost 5 months to get them. I just want to see what these Assault bars look like from the front and rear in a 12" size. I don't care if they need wire extensions or hydraulic line extensions, I'll buy them if needed as I'm not relying on them to fit using stock wiring and such, if they do fit great, if not then no big deal. Although, looking at them, the 12" size appear to be about the same as the 10" Yaffe bars, just wider. I'm just going to order them, I like the look and from what I've read on the Road Glide forums, the fit and finish of the Factory 47 (Bulky Bars) are great.

    I don't know of any off the shelf hoses, but I have a local place that will make whatever I want. Just bring in the hose that needs to be longer, pick my color and they will manufacture and pressure check them.

    Will do, but it won't be until September/October since I'm currently deployed, but this is going to be first on my list when I get home (along with an engine build, hahaha).

    Sounds good, I'll be starting my front end build in December. That gives you time to get back home safely, and get your bars installed.

    By your user name, I can tell your a Helo-mechanic. But what branch of service, and Thank You for your service, I served for 10yrs in the Army Infantry.

    Just placed the order, so if all goes well they should be at the house in a month or less. Ordered some NAMZ 12" extensions, so should have more then enough wire and I'll just attempt to readjust the hydraulic lines. If that doesn't work, I'll just have my local place make some new lines.

    I started off doing 3 years in Infantry (11C) and then switched over to a 93B (Aeroscout Observer) until that MOS was phased out, then moved into 67U (CH-47 Helicopter Crew Chief) and finished with 12 years active service. Now I'm a DOD Civilian working in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
