Thank you, at 33.5" they would work out great. May have to give these a shot once I sell my 10" Factory 47 bars.

Sat on a bike at my dealer with 12" Yaffe's and they were very comfortable and fit me well... still not sure that's the direction I want to go. Wish I could find a bike with the Yaffe sport bars to sit on.

So the question is. Slightly leaned forward at 6" or slightly leaned back at 12". Maybe a 9" bar would be just right and put most riding straight up.



Even on my Touring bike, I don't like riding slightly leaned back. I prefer a slightly leaned forward ride position. The Monkey Sport Bars really only put you in a slightly leaned forward position. They are not drag bars or clip-ons, so you won't be laying over the tank.

The HD Chizled lo are perfect for me. I don't like being leaned back. I don't like the styling of "peaked" apes not matter who makes them.

Yeah I've been comparing both of these pictures trying to decide! I'd like to try a 10" bar and see where that puts me.

Sweet bike! Yeah the chizeled lo's are on my list as well. Do you have a side picture of you on the bike holding the bars for reference?

Sorry, I do not.

Every time someone tries to take a picture of me, their device breaks.

Great looking bike----you all should check out Klock Werks ( klip hanger bars) I put 12" kilp hanger bars on my 2017 Road King! Love them!!! Most comfortable bars I had in 25 years. Completely adjustable! Check them out -Brian Klock makes great stuff

The more I look at these two pictures and the more I think of my riding position I think I would be happier with the 6" sport bars. I'd feel like I have more control of the bike versus leaning backwards. Thanks again for putting these two pictures together for an easy comparison between the two bars!
