Question Handlebar replacement, move closer

Hi,

I'd like to move the controls of my 2008 a little closer to me so that I'm not leaning ahead to reach them. I'm considering the victory 2-inch pull backs or fly ness? Any other suggestions? Is ther an easy measurement I can take to know if my bike already has the pull backs?

Thanks.

You might just try risers. When I had my Kingpin that is what I did and it made a big difference and it's much cheaper than new bars. This thread may help, it chronicles my use of the risers along with a couple of others.

Thanks.

I installed risers and Honda handlebars. Liked the angles much better and didn't have to change cables. Bars were less than $50.

I went with Ness Fly bars. I may also fit 1" risers. They look great but do not have the adjust-ability of regular bars. Much better comfort than stock.

Stock was never the best for comfort on my Kingpin. Post what works for you when you make the change.
