I bought thse bars to replace my stock oem bars on my 2008 Harley Heritage. The oem bars have ends that stick up like wings. To me, being short, this was very uncomfortable. These Flanders Mini-apes were just the ticket! Arms now lay in a perfect relaxed, pullback style position. Stock cables fit up perfect. Just had to unscrew the retaining clips on the cables long enough to do the install, then resecure the clips! Make sure the cover on your handbrake cylinder resevoir is snug as the assembly will sit at a slight tilt. Works fine tho and no leak if lid is properly secured. Sit on a Softail Custom FLSTC at the Harley Dealer. If you like the feel, this ape is identical! Just better quality and chrome. This ape has the dimples under the switchboxes to clear the electrical cables, just like the factory OEM. A+++ Product.
