I've been looking at drag bars alot and saw the Wild 1 Low Profile Drag Bars.


http://www.motorsportssuperstore.com/eshopprod_cat_3945-8960-25469_product_485867.WILD_1_CHUBBYS174_LOW_PROFI.htm


http://www.denniskirk.com/jsp/product_catalog/Product.jsp?skuId=595671&store=Main&catId=410&productId=p595671&leafCatId=41017&mmyId=


http://www.wild1inc.com/metricbars.html


I did a search but I only found 1 personthat installed these and they had to modify the installation since they were not made


for metric cruisers at the time (2003 post). They are now making them for metrics. I've got an '06 with stock bars, 5 1/2" hgt


and 13" pullback, I've been looking for something at least the same or maybe back a touch more. Dennis Kirk has different


dimensions then MSS or Wild 1 on the web site, not to sure if it's the same bar, but their catalog agrees withMSS and Wild 1


Has anyone installed these? Do they have pics? How's the fit and finish? Cables/Wires need extending? Speedo/Tach view


obstructed? If anyone has them I'd like to hear opionions. Thanksin advance

I don't know, I'm thinking the angle point on the riser is +/- 2-2.5", but I came up with that


by rough scaling. That's one of the things I'm looking for though.

Did anyone ever find an answer regarding the clear view of tach and spedo with the low profile bars? I know I'm a few years late to the forum, but I can't find a clear answer if the low profile bars or the- 'normal' profile drag bars from chubby would be best.

I see 3 options on his site;

6" rise
8" rise
low profile

Has anyone figured out if the pullback is different between these or just the rise?
If anybody has gone through with the install, feel free to pm me, I've got a few questions.

thanks!

Can you post a pic? I bought a used bike with the Wild 1 Chubby's and I love them, but I can't see the speedo at all. Being that the bars are so thick, it blocks it out completely. I'd also like something about 2" higher too.
