Rated 3 out of 5 by Mainecat21 Good height but paint and bar thickness could be better
At 6'0 with a long torso, I was constantly reaching down for the stock bars and was not comfortable. These are a great height for me, my hands are just below my shoulders and the grips are right at the top of the fairing, not above. I bought aftermarket, smaller mirrors and drilled new holes lower on the fairing and look under my arms to see behind me. I prefer this cleaner look from the front and can still see behind.
As for the install, you do not need cable or wire extensions. I disconnected all the wires from the cannon plug connectors, ran them through the bars and then re-routed the connectors that run to them in the fairing. Clutch and brake lines are plenty long. As for the bars, the black is painted not powder coated. So the paint chips and peels way too easy! Especially when you are trying to position the hand controls. These bars pick up a little more vibration but are not that bad. I.M.O. they need to be 1/2 thicker, this would cut down on vibration, look better and make running the wires through the bars easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mtnmanbrad Right fit for me
I'm 6'4" and it was the right fit for me. Dealer said I had to lose the heated hand grips due to cabling restrictions (hole size) through the handlebar. Reason for not scoring a 5

Puts my wrists in a very uncomfortable position, I will replace these bars first chance I get.

These look great on my bike. Hands rest just at the top of the speakers. Not to much wind drag on my knuckles. Just a guess but hands are appox 4" below my shoulders sitting on a stock tour seat. Angle of the grips are a bit flatter than stock. I got use to the grip angle in about a hundred miles. Was able to reinstall stock heated grips. Dealer explained small tab inside the heated grip needed to be knocked down some. Or maybe they just used a bigger hammer. Either way they work. All wires and lines had to be extended. Everything except brake and clutch lines routed internally. After the break in period I find these bars to be very comfortable. I am 6' with average reach. 4 Stars simply because of the flat angle of the grips. But as I said I got use to them.
