    Hey guys, after being quoted $2000 in labour + hardware for mini apes for my 04 FXDL I decided to approach some friends who told me if I buy the bits they'll help me fit them for a carton or two which sounded fine by me, but I'm not sure what hardware I need.

    I currently have Burleigh T-bars fitted to my FXDL but I'm edging towards some mini apes instead, I know I need a riser and bars, but I don't even know where to begin I don't want anything huge like 16", but then if you get 16" to the risers add onto that? Just hoping for some pointers and tips as to what would be a good solution here.

    Thanks in advance!

    sorry no idea what you need.....but $2000.00 @say  $100.00/hour for labour for fitment,nearly 3 days work time...going to give up fixing tractors and open an ape bar.....never fitted apes ,but surely its not a 3 day job, may be some who has fitted them can correct me on that.good luck with the bars,mates who work for slabs a good mates......lol.cheers

    No argument from me guys but the local shop is going to charge me an arm and a leg! If I can figure out what I need.. then I'm going to be a hell of a lot better off

    Have a look at Lucky Daves 12" bars, all you will need cable wise is a set of Street Bob Cables.

    Hey mate 
    I recently got some 10” high rollers from Burleigh Bars, go in and see them depending on how thick you want them your existing risers may be compatible

    a few years back i got some mini apes with risers off a softail for $100 and put them on myself on my 93 lowrider. at the time it had 28" wide bars with standard risers so i didnt need to change any cables. no internal wiring so not to hard. the apes were standard on the softail same as my street bob now i think they measure at 12". depends on who makes them they can measure different heights. dont know if your handlebars are internally wired or not or if your burliegh bars have a rise on them or how wide they are so i would assume that if your quote was for hardware and fitting you would be paying for bars risers clutch cable brake cable and 2 accelerator cables. do some research get a bit of string find someone with a street bob measure there cables against yours. if you dont need cables and you are running wiring outside you and your mates should be hooking into them slabs in a couple of hours.              Potluk
