2018 Road King Bars

Had these on my bike for 6 months while trying to decide on my forever bars . They are the same height and width as stock RG bars but a lot less pullback which is why i got them. Will work on 17 and newer road glides. $175 shipped

Do you know why they won't work on a 15?

14 (15 for road glide) and up are 1.25" . I have these on my 15 RGS now, will be changing to some meat hooks shortly. Much better than stock.

Thank you for the clarification. I wasn’t sure what year the clamps changed.

When I had my Road King I wanted to put my RGU bars on it. But then I realized that won't work with riding in the wind. Need a little forward lean when riding in the wind.

I guess I am one of the rare riders who likes the OEM Road Glide Special bars and wish Harley would come out with a new softail with handlebar mounted speedo and tach and buckhorn bars.

To clarify I didn’t mind the stock bars; wrist angle just a bit extreme. I love my Tallboy Bars

Always liked the looks of buckhorn bars. But with carpal tunnel I can't ride with them or anything close. These road king bars are pretty good for me.
