Has anyone installed Tusk 1 1/8 Chub bars?

I'm getting ready to pull trigger on 1 1/8 chub bars. The adapter says it raises bars by 3/4". My question is, can I install the ATV high bar, or will I have to go with CR bend to accommodate cable length. ATV has 4 3/4 height plus 3/4 for adapter. The CR bend is 1" shorter. I already have 1" risers with stock bars. That's as far as I can go without lengthening cables.

Just measured my risers. I have 1 1/2" of rise.

Looks like the stock bars are the same height of rise...4 3/4. So I'm hoping I can use the ATV high bar. I was hoping someone might have already done it, so I don't make an ordering mistake.

How does that work with all of the controls that are made for 7/8" bars? Do you have to reinvent everything to make that work?

They are tapered. They are 1 1/8th tapered down to 7/8" on bar ends.

So I received my new bars today. Really like them. Look great and feel more substantial. Less vibration and an improved feel. 1 1/8 aluminum is so much nicer than 7/8" steel stockers. Best 70 bucks I've spent on the bike so far.

Now I'm thinking of getting the Tusk Dflex handguards and ditching the wind deflector stockers. So Cheesy.

Hi did you get the ATV bars? are they higher and have more of a pull back than the stockers? thanks for the update.
