I don't like them.  They look spongy.



 :rotfl:

... and what's with the packaging tape? 

I hope you didn't pay much for them...  but, at least they won't rust.   ;D

LOL yeah, the sponge is still wrapped around them. However, I spoke too soon. There's already a little problem I'm running into. I'll need to retap the right side hole at the base. Check out the bolt as it's stripping not even half way through.

Hey Bill, it was going well until then. I should've known the ol' cliche "too good to be true".

I don't have a tap set, I'm on my way to a parts store, maybe I get lucky and have it retapped. We'll see.

Brother, I certainly hope it works out for you.  :fingerscrossed: You have been through even more then I had to go through with the bars.

I've been reading through this thread and it makes me very glad I joined this community.  I hate that you guys had to go through what you did for a set of bars.  But at least everyone else knows that it would be best to take their business elsewhere. 
If you ain't riding, you ain't living.

I came along this site for a set Heli Bars. I wonder if anyone has a set of these on their bikes.

I don't know if they make these for Yamaha cruisers. It'd probably be a matter of just placing an order in case they don't?

Your best bet is Rox Speed riser adapters.

I'm in the process of installing a set of Rox 2" extensions. As soon as I get things back together I'll post some pics. Got mine on Amazon for $128.

Raider Rick,

I'm really interested in your outcome. I'm gonna save all my cables just in case I go this route instead.

Ok. so my best effort was fruitless. Still no replacement bars so, I contacted phat and they are swaping out some LA chopper bars for the other set. What can I say? I gave the man every chance in the world to do the right thing. ...  :(
