    Good Morning all,

    I have a 2000 Husky with factory handle bars and was thinking I might be interested in putting apes but not sure how they will look since the bike kinda has that prostreet look? Does anyone have an older dog with apes and can send me some photos? My last bike I rode for 15 years had 13 inch apes on 3 inch risers, always loved that look.

    drag specialties clutch 74", throttles 36", and brake line 48". i can get you the numbers later if you want, best way is to put bars on use some mechanics wire and run where you want them. then measure the length of wire.

    Apes

    :2thumbs: Yeah, i am happy with the whole set up. the only thing i tried to do when i was putting them together was to get a 90 degree AN fitting with a female #4 on one side and a male #4 on the other. this would make my brakeline come straight down the bars and look a bit cleaner. in turn i could have probably used a 42" brakeline.
