Just wanted to share some pics of Stella with her new 12" apes and her other little mods and goodies! Dropped the license plate to the bottom of the back fender, put on a new swingarm bag, spikes the front fender, new whitewall front tire. She is so much more fun to ride with the apes!

Here's a little "before" shot;


Here she is after all of her mods and add-ons;

Thanks y'all! I got the light bar off of eBay. Cheap version at around $60.00 it is not the quality of the ones you see for over $200.00 but it does the trick. My taste in add-ons and mods are fun but I hate to pay the crazy prices some of the stuff costs. I try to pick up cheaper versions and sometimes you get what you pay for! I have had a couple things that didn't work out but for the most part everything is pretty affordable. I have a little fork bag (studded) that I forgot to put on when I put the wheel back on today.

I can't believe the stock cables worked with 12" apes! Crazy!

I don't like the angle of the cable coming out of the clutch lever, does it drag?

No, the clutch works perfectly. I would have preferred to leave all of the cables and controls in their original positions but I wanted the 12's and DID NOT want the extra $250+ that came with the new crap to keep the original location. I would not have kept the 12's if ANYTHING would have worked differently when I was done. I DID NOT want the 12's bad enough to risk my safety. :)

LOL! It does feel cool with your pits in the wind! It is easier on my back and as strange as it sounds my carpal tunnel doesn't rage on as fast either! Win Win!
