Default FMB 12" Apes!!

My bars came in and they look great. Tomorrow I will start the install...hopefully it won't take toooo long but no worries, I have all weekend.
Anyone know where I can find a how to post or video? I'm aware of Tribalman's post but there are only pics. If not, then i'll just take pics and post them on here with instructions. Below are pics of them out of the box (Well packaged and secured. Only problems were the week late delivery and inability to get in contact with anyone at FMB.

I got the 14s and they are super comfortable . Feeding the electrics thru the bars was the hardest part and that wasnt even that bad. You will need to take off the powder coat where the grips go. Going to feel like a whole new bike...enjoy.

Ravage: I'll let yall know how it goes..and ill either be griping or praising!

Miko: I don't know if i'll like it either but there's only one way to find out. 1 reason that makes sense is that they allowed more space for extra pullback. Only person that would know for sure is Tribalman since he was the one that helped design them.

Just use a screwdriver to pry the end up and squirt some wd-40 in there. Like you did when you took off the stock ones
