You know what happens to yellow victory's around here they end up with brutal powered 116" engines in them.
Yellow 26 is a Meguire wax. And a very good one.

Those look wicked good , do you like the riding position with them ? Did it feel strange when you went to them from stock ?

Oh thanks man. It definitely felt strange at first, but you get used to it real quick. When I go on longer trips, I tilt them back a little bit, about an inch and a half and put my taller windshield on. When I'm riding around town I push them all the way forward for the more aggressive look.

I saw a brand new Magnum with these same apes at a dealer yesterday. But maybe they were Ness bars on it.

Supposedly the Vic apes are 14" and the Ness ones are 16"... The reasoning is the 16" will require different cables and the 14" uses stock cables. Yours are most definitely the Ness ones.

Also the Vic apes will be legal in most states where the 16" Ness might not be... Up here in Alberta the rule is your hands can't be above your shoulders in riding position.

Mine are most definitely Ness bars. Cause I bought them. lol
But that does make sense. I would guess that the bike I saw yesterday was a Ness Magnum I just didn't look that close. Touché my friend

Did you have to lengthen any cables? I tried to buy some Vic apes 2 years ago when I bought my XC... They where back ordered 6 months or something stupid. I ended up with Vic Baggers apes. They are comfortable but look hideous.

Yeah I did. I just bought cables from Ness to go with the bars. It ended up to be a little more Spendy then I wanted

Well they do look great! They are almost necessary if your a bigger guy.
Thanks man.. Funny thing is I'm not a big guy. 5'11" 180. I just like the look.
Like I said in a previous post I pull them back a little when I go on longer rides. I went on 5 day 2000mile ride last summer and I wasn't uncomfortable at all.

I'm more of a shiny paint kinda guy but the flat black looks good on that bike. Still looks like a factory paint job if that's what you were going for.
