Default new cross country need more pullback

owned it less than a week and all is going well but i need about an 1-1/2" more pullback on my bars maybe even an inch, its all about body, geometry etc. just wanted to know what you guys have found out there. unfortunately most of the bar manufacturers list there bars by rise, pullback etc. it would be nice to be able to look at bars as how are they different from stock... for instance bars are 1" back from stock and 2" rise etc. maybe im asking too much but spent years going through different bars on my harleys and the cross country isnt as easy to swap them out so id like to get it right first time. thanks!

Do some looking around on the site, this is probably one of the biggest talked about things on the cross bikes.

my forum skills are a bit lacking, I found some stuff, just looking for a way to guage the bars without a big guessing game. 1 to 2" pullback black bars would be the cure for me. still tryin to get the search to bring me the right info...

Haha good luck with the search feature, it sucks! How tall are you? I made my own bars that are similar to the ness modulars in spec. Im 6'3" and the stock positon felt like it pulled my arms down and my shoulders would get sore, i tried rotating the bars up amd it helped slightly but the wrist angle was bad. If i were to buy a set of bars i would probably go with the ness modulars.

My advice would be call Vic Baggers (vicbaggers.com) and have them make you a set to your specs. Each set is made to order. They have a jig that they can set the stock bars in and then adjust for amount of pull back or rise. I couldn't be happier with mine!

Default behind bars...

im 6'1" and the bars are just about an inch or inch and a half too forward, man these bars are pricey, I bought a set of burley bars for my roadglide for 200 bucks and I thought that was steep! with th stock setup and rider backrest taken apart and reversed on the bracket all is perfect except the bar position so ill call vic baggers and check out the ness bars at arlen ness(bought my bike there) at my first service, thanks for the input guys. some of the handlebar links here make it worse, not better, as a deciding factor. goin riding in the morning! later.

I had the Victory 2" pullback bars installed on my CCT over the winter and they're excellent. Really made a nice difference. They can be rotated up and down like the oem CCT bars. With the grips being brought back towards the rider an extra 2", it makes the rotation difference even more pronounced. Almost like a set of mini apes or all the way down towards the tank.

All the best,

Mark

Default black bars

thanks for the info mark, im looking for just that but do those come in black do you know? who did the install? and if you didn't do it what did they charge you? I know from experience on my roadglide that after pulling the fairing a few times it gets easier but wanted to see if it was worth it for me to dig in on a brand new bike or let service handle it. probably double the cost of the bars for install though...

They don't come in black I was thinking about getting a set my self and then have them powder coated. My dealer said I would need a new brake cable but the other cables would be OK
