do you have apicture that you could post to assist me in locating said pin? Actually, I am leaning towards the HMD XC pullback bars.... your thoughts?

I finished the handlebars and other little projects last night. I may need to reroute a few things though.
These feel much better even though I haven't refined the adjustments yet. I do wish they came back a little further.

Depot, do those Ness modular bars come farther back than the stock bars? I'm interested in pullbacks, to get some more bend in my elbows and/or sit up a bit straighter.

HMD says of its pullbacks, "The hand postion has been changed to give you a more comfortable feeling." (I also like that you can get them in black.)

The Ness modular apes let you do some grip-angle adjusting yourself, right? Kind of like the very expensive, super adjustable, bar systems that HeliBars makes for some other brands, I gather.

So, questions for you:

1) Can these Ness bars go as low as regular bars (i.e., I'm not interested in their "ape" capability), and thus function as pullbacks, with the added capability of some grip-angle adjustment?

2) What's this about "rerouting"? I'm definitely interested in any comments along those lines.

Thanks for your time.

They can go low enough to hit the tank on tight turns.
I went from Vic 2" pullback bars. These seem to have slightly less pull back.
I need to reroute a few cables because I rushed getting it back together so I could ride it to my Thursday night out at the biker bar. It all works lock to lock. Next time I have it apart I will make it look a bit more tidy.
I've only done about 20 miles with them. I'll do a few hundred this weekend and can provide better comfort info.

I think what people are wanting to see is how far they can be pulled back before hitting the tank. If you have any pics of that I'm sure everyone would like to see them.

The HMD pullback bars look much better than the stock ones and it sounds like the wrist position is much better.

This is all I have for a pic on the hole locating pin. I ground two sections so the HD grips I had would fit.

Do you think you could post a few pics of your new handlebars on your bike? (maybe from the riders view or a bit lower so we can see the pullback and grip angle)

I'll be putting on the Ness bars tomorrow and snap a few pics to share too. KEN

Default Ness Modular Cross Country Ape Handlebars

I put on my Ness Modular Cross Country Ape Handlebars. These are "not" Ape bars. They are modular (adjustable pullback angle).
Here is what is in the box. It is shipped in a box 3 times the size of what is needed.



Before shot



After shots







Hopefully I'll be riding tomorrow and let you know how they feel. They do look good, but they better for "what they cost". KEN

Looks just like mine except your garage is way better. Yours are adjusted higher than mine. I'm hoping to get some miles on then this afternoon.
