    These look similar like the one in the video.
    Would they fit?

    those are probably custom made apes but I know that under the handlebars section at pacificcoaststar.com they sell apes in all different sizes. hope this helps. unless you want those specific bars then you might have to get them custom made.

    He's got most the major brands available and some great pricing. H'ell be able to answer questions concerning lengths of new cables etc required to get you set up all the way.

    Here is a link to a forum called "Apehangers Revolution" if you want even more info.

    The bars on EBAY are set on 3.5" centers...your 1100 is 4" centers. You can probably mill your risers to get them to work, but it's not a straight bolt on. The bars in the video must be 18" or 20"? Most that I see are 16" (like your EBAY bars), but that doesn't mean you need to go that way. The rule of thumb in length is to always error on the longer side. That way you won't end up having to buy longer cables again...

    Hope that helps....

    I haven't found anything similar on any of the websites. I emailed the eBay guy and he said he can make the same bars that will fit my bike. He sounded like he knows what he's doing bcz he told that my bike uses 4" centers .
