Cool VICTORY CROSS ROADS 2" Pull Back Handlebars

Hello everyone from Downunder.

Besides having to content with riding upside down in Australia and contrary to poulkar belief it has no effect on counter steering , I wanted to ask your choice of pull back handle bars.

Burleigh make a wicked set of bars in Australia for around a grand.

I have seen plenty of reports of handlebars to suit Cross Country, but how about Cross Roads?

Cross Country bars are about 2 inches longer than Cross Roads to start with so finding a suitable CR bar is a very interesting excercise.

I would like to know what Bars fellow Cross Roads owners have tried or are using.

Cheers

Chris :-)

I will be installing the HMD XR Pullbacks on my bike this weekend. They use a short riser instead of the stock XR riser. I will post pics once I install and let you know how the feel is.

i used the factory accessory 2" bars on mine. they give me
a straighter seating position instead of leaning forward. did
have to use the longer brake hose too. you arms and elbows will
be more relaxed.

handlebar # 2878551
hose # 1911723[for 2010 and 11 only]
this is out of the 2012 acc. book--irv

2011 cross roads, crimson red, speedo reflash,
forged bars,bag bars,tach,driver and pass backrest[vic]
vic luggage rack and lowers,iso grips,2" pullbacks
hard bags,xc adj pass footrests, color keyed side
chin fairings. 7 jurock custom made windshield.
ultimate seat, hid low beams, timing wheel back in,
and of course, a ric z laydown license bracket.[5
mph faster].

Default VICTORY CROSS ROADS 2" Pull Back Handlebars

I used the stock bar from the XC which is the equivalent to the 2" pullback for the XR. Very happy with it. Nice curve to the elbows and it allows me to sit back in the seat. Highly recommended.

Hi Ninja, did you need to use longer cables or hoses?

The stock cables fit just fine. It was a simple swap.

might try to get a set of cross country bars of ebug and see if they will post to Australia. Some good priced bars at the moment with free shipping in the USA, but wont ship to OZ.
