I wanted a pair of 12 ape hangers and found these, took a chance due to the price. Turned out to be a great gamble, the bars are perfect, I went from stock (Kawi VN 900C) to a set of 10 harley bars, but still wasn't happy. These bars had the perfect spacing at the bottom and a great pullback/turndown at the handles. Thanks Dennis!
I installed the Krome Werks 12" Apes on my 2003 Nomad 1500 to help me be able to sit back further and keep my back straighter on long rides. I am 5'9" but have a long torso (28" inseam). Height is perfect for me and the bend of the bars keep my wrists straight with no pressure on my hands. I was worried that the apes would adversely affect handling but, although I have not put a lot of miles on the bike since the handlebar change, handling is as good if not better than before the switch. I did have to lengthen the front brake lines and reroute the clutch line behind the triple tree but cables and wiring fit well. Very happy with the handlebars overall.
