Knurled mini apes

I'm looking for a set of 10" knurled mini apes for my '02 VL800, but can't find the spacing between the risers online. My bike is in storage until the snow is gone, so I can't measure it myself.

These are supposed to fit, but are not for sale anymore. According to the ebay listing, they're the same as these, which supposedly are a replacement for these.

But none of these have the same listed dimensions. So I'm a bit confused.

And here is the original ebay listing which references the V-Factor bars.

It has long been advised to avoid buying things on Fleabay. If the prices are too good to be true, that's because it usually is. Items like these bars are cheap, chinese copies, made with inferior metals and poorly plated. They will begin to rust, before you even get them on the bike.

So do yourself a favor and pay a little extra for a known commodity.

Yeah, I contacted the nearest HD dealer and got a price for the handlebars from them. Now I just need to find out if the riser spacing matches up with the knurls on the handlebars.

I ordered the Wide Glide bars, but these might be what you're looking for. Part number 56902-08.

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to getting them installed. I'll put some pictures up as soon as they're on. I got a message from the HD dealer that they arrived at the shop today.

I did my 10" Yaffee's last year before our Forum's Lake George Rally, smiling the whole way
Good luck
