BR Customs maybe? They'll build to YOUR specs, whatever you need.

I don't mind the wait.... It's spending the $ and getting something I don't like. I put on the HMD pullbacks and wish I did a little more research before installing them. They don't really have anymore pull back than the stock bars and to be honest the welding marks by the grips is driving me crazy..

You definitely need to call BR then. I want to get some of his bars in about the same geometry as my stock high-ball bars, but 3 or so inches taller. They look like top-notch quality, and being very custom-oriented, you get exactly what you spec.

I went wit a custom set from VicBaggers. I specified the detail rise and draw back, took him less than a week turn around and cheaper than HMD.ImageUploadedByMO Free1390960806.683629.jpg

Dustin,
How much pull back do they have over the stock bars? I went onto their site but only saw 1 type of handlebar and it's not the one you have. Can you get me some mesurements??

I specified 3" forward and 3" up from where the stock bars sit when set at the mid point between fairing and tank opening.

I have crazy long arms so I wanted to specify in relation to stock. I just shot them the specs and the design and they worked them up.

I thought the welds on the HMD's (at least the ones I got) were perfectly fine.
