Default HMD -vs- Vic 2" pull back

Looking to get my bars a little closer to me on my 2012 Pearl White XCT What is the big difference in these two bars. Thanks

The Vic bars are just like your stock bars except come back another 2". The HMD520 pullbacks are a totally custom bar, fatter tubing, miter cut, they come back 2 1/2" and height can be adjusted a lot more if you like because of the curved design. The angle of your wrists is also more relaxed to take the pressure off of them. Highly recommend the HMD bars.

I have the HMD pullback bars on my bike and I LOVE them. I adjusted them to sit 2" higher than stock and they are also 2" wider for a little more leverage. I'm 6' tall and this works very well for me. I posted pictures of these after install on another post here.

I too have the HMD 520 bars on my XR, I LOVE them! So comfortable, and a really nice looking handlebar. You can't go wrong with these.
