Get a transmission cooler, usually a lot cheaper than bike specific oil cooler

Was messing around with bars.

Buddy had some left over apes...he likes apes on everything...me not so much.

 

I kinda prefer the lower bar look.
They give me just enough room to be comfortable.

 

Whatcha think?


 

Um.....  the clubmans look silly  :P

If you don't like the apes ( which would look bad ass with a sissy bar by the way ) , how about just simple drag bars?

The clubmans started as a joke, but do fit well.
Very comfortable.

They do look odd in the pictures.
I need to pull the bike out for proper pictures, looks much better in person.
Almost like you don't even know what they are at first glance.

I want to keep the low look of the bike, but be able to ride the death trap.

From those pics I like the longer ones, kinda hard to tell without seeing them on the bike.  Maybe fishtails

Yeah seeing them on the bike would be better.
I want the upturn to be behind the pegs, but not pointing directly at the passengers foot.
Trying to get longer pipes so the bike runs better, and fill the space infront of the rear wheel

Maybe I'm wrong but something doesn't look right with the front end.  It looks like the front axle plate is vertical instead of horizontal.


Note the difference in the springer here:





The two connecting arms come down to a point on yours and are spaced apart on mine.
