    Kurt, hello & welcome from Missouri.

    Bars are such a personal thing, what 1 person likes means nothing to everyone else.

    I have the 12" mini-ape stock bars on my FW & love them. I would recommend checking with your local dealers, as many have a set up to test different bars. I would also search YouTube as they have a couple good videos on picking the right bars for you and the comfort triangle on any motorcycle.

    I'm an ape man myself.... but like Micheal said... it is a very personal choice. I chose 19" Santee bars

    One of the most popular setups is the Khrome Werks 2+2 Sweepers, whether Wide or Narrow. You'll find lots of threads on those. I've got the Wides, love the hell outta them. Just run a search on the site here for "Khrome Werks".

    I'm in the midst of installing Factory 47s. 14" Malo bars.

    Should have been a straight forward install. I called them and asked if any extensions were needed. They said nope bolt right up. Well, Nope, they dont. It will be worth it when I'm done. Just wish I had the correct answers going into it. I would have ordered everything I needed up front. Required the Namz extensions 8" and a +4 clutch and brake line. Should have the lines in by monday.

    Honestly the stock bars are not bad at all. For me 14 is better and I'm not a fan of stock. One of the best things a out out bikes. Is the ability to make it unique.
