Product Details

Biltwell Apes Handlebars

Construction:1-inch O.D. x 0.120" wall seamless 4130 chromoly tubing. All bends are created with internal mandrels on a CNC bender to reduce flat spots in the radiuses, and all welded joints are precision mitered and TIG welded. For exact measurements, please click the Specifications icon in the photo album. Available in two styles: Smooth for aftermarket hand controls or custom applications, and Dimpled for stock Harley-Davidson switches and levers.

Fitment: At 12 inches from center of clamping area to center of the top bend, Biltwell Apes are tall without being outrageous. Thirty-five degrees of back sweep ensures your wrists remain comfortable on long rides. Depending on the height of the bars you’re replacing, longer brake lines, clutch and throttle cables and/or switch wiring might be required. If you’re not confident in your ability to change handlebars on your motorcycle, please consult a service professional.

These bars look great on: raked-out choppers with extended forks, custom bikes with stretched backbones, and practically any Big Twin you can imagine. Apes not recommended for really short bikes or short riders—proportions and comfort may be compromised.

  • Manufactured from 1" OD x 0.120" wall seamless 4130 chromoly tubing

Will these bars fit a 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan Classic and will I need longer cables?
David D on Aug 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: David, thank you for the question As long as your machine uses 1" bars, these should fit. I would take into consideration your controls. Measure how long your grip area is and if the controls will have enough space to transfer over, given the length of the new bars. As far es length of cables goes, I cannot guarantee you that you will be able to re use your stock cables. You will most likely need longer cables. To make sure, you can take some measurements on your current set up and compare to the specs provided on the product page.

Are the black handlebars powder coated? Gloss, satin or matte finish?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question! Unfortunately our records do not specify this information. However, fter some research, I have learned the following: Biltwell calls the finish Black Electrostatic Discharge. It is applied the same way chrome plate is applied to raw materials. Like chrome plating, powdercoating and standard paint finishes, BED requires periodic care to maintain its luster. KEY WORD: Luster. This tells me it is satin, or semi gloss!
