A quick update on this...

Some of you may already know that my bike is in the shop right now getting some other work done to it, one thing being some powder coat work...

My shop ground down the outer diameter of the angled washers for Murphs wedges and the outer diameter of the bolt heads that go through the bars to mount to the upper triple clamp, and now everything will fit just fine, which means I can now also use my wedges with these new multi-adjustable bars!!  ;D

Here's some pics, you'll also notice that I had my Heli risers and Murphs wedges powder coated black, looking sharp IMO!  :great:

Off topic a bit but what brand of radar detector is that and how do you like it?

Those look wicked cool on your Connie.. if bolts are aluminum you can get em anodized or  this guy has many bolts in many colors and configurations from Titanium  (pricey)  Aluminum (lightweight and NOT really for all weight bearing applications) and stainless..

You must not have come from the HD world, dog.  :beerchug:

To be called ape hangers, they have to be above your shoulders.

I have pulled the trigger on buying the precision engineering multi-adjustable bars and am attempting to install myself.  I have removed the one visible bolt the holds the horizontal portion of the handle bar to the upright, but that does not seem to separate them that easily.  The question is, do I need to hammer it off, or is there some other way of dismantling the horizontal from the vertical?  Not sure if I am missing something. :-[

Can you post a pic Deb?

I'm unclear which part you're having trouble with, mine went on pretty straight forward...

I'm interested in this too, as I am just about to install my PE's. Did either of you guys have any problem getting the brake and clutch cables to fit?  Are the stockers long enough?

Thx ZG... but was able to separate bars with a little WD40.  It got a bit dark but I was able to install PE bars.  I ended up removing them since the brake/hose cables were stretched to the limit without even extending the bars.  I definitely need to have the longer cables.  Appreciate if you suggest where I might get them.

Can anyone who has installed these comment on bar buzz? Do you experience any more/less numbness? I find my stock bars will make my throttle hand numb during a long ride with the wrong posture. I like the idea of having them adjustable.

No major buzz for me, but I also didn't have any major buzz with the oem bars either...  ???
