    BARS ! Do i need to make my own ?

    Anybody know of a 12" ape bar that has enough pullback so i can lean back and have my elbows nicely bent? Everything i see out there has the bars bent forward toward the fairing. I want bars that have 6 to 8 inches of clearance between the throttle grip and the fairing face. Im 5' 11" and the stock bars make my hands numb on a long ride. Going straight up from the stockers is not enough. I need to go up and BACK ! Help me my cyber biker buds !!

    I use Kromewerks 2+2 Narrow Sweepers for the reasons you stated.

    Mike, you have any side view pics from ground level? Kromewerks site has no helpful pics. Are yours 12" bars (rise) ? They dont say what the +2 and 2+2 mean on their site.

    The 2+2 are 2" up and 2" back from stock. They also have a more natural wrist angle than stock.
    I have my bars pulled back pretty far, I'm like 5'9" and my elbows are bent with them like this. You would probably set them more upright.
    Do a Google search, there's lots of talk about these bars.

    Well, I ordered 12" LA Choppers #7321-12 apes and should be here Monday . Added the poly bushings too. Likely will need to modify the bars to get the reach i want. Listed as having 10" of pull back so we will see.
