Handlebar Comparisons

I figured I would just start with the three that I was interested in. This was out of the 2012 Catalog and are all 1 inch bars.


.....................Tip to Tip...... Pull Back.... Rise...Base Width....Knurl Width
Stock .............32.00...........3.50..........10.50.. .11.50..........3.14
Heritage..........31.25...........5.00..........12 .00...11.50..........3.14
Reduced Reach.32.00...........5.50..........11.25...13.00. .........3.14

Updated 12-3-2012 This was very helpful for me. These are all 1 inch bars. If you have any information to add please do so and thank you.

Yes, but it gets confusing when you look at measurements because everyone measures different. According the measurements above you'd have to go to 12" apes to get 2" over stock, which we all know is not the case. The heritage claim to be 12", yet 10" chubbies are taller than the 12" heritage.

I do agree and because this is one of the most difficult decisions to make, i will say good luck in the search for bars. By the way i went with the wo502 wild1 12.5 chubbys and couldnt be happier

I put on the reduced reach last week and am very happy. Although I'm 6'2, I like to lean back a bit. I agree all are different, even looking at the measurements for the HD bars (to try and keep it apples to apples regarding measurements) they absolutely sit and feel different. I was surprised how much higher the reduced reach appear over stock (once installed). You really don't know how they feel until installed.

502s are on my list but i think im probably going with 10". The other problem is the chubbies are all 36.5" wide, abut 3" wider than stock which puts your hands out in the wind more than i like.

Again i agree but with my lil fingernail cvo windshield all bars put my hands in the wind more so than the stock bars. You may want to try the outlaw bars. I believe theyre a few inches shorter in the width dept.

Did the stock cables and wiring work with those bars?
