HD chisled lo bars and CVO

Anybody know why HD says the HD made chisled lo handlebars do not fit CVO's?

I have one of the 2018 RG CVO's and after reading the specs of these bars the fit my needs perfectly.

Any help from the would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Oh, some eye candy.

All I know is I have a 17 with chisel low's and the new 21" front wheel isn't compatible because of the bars...

I just don't know how or why that would matter.

What's funny is the dealer stocks 10" Yaffe's, but they have more pull back compared to the HD chisled. And they were ready and willing to sell and install those for me.

It just doesn't make sense.

HD chisled lo bars and CVO

It has something to do with the hand controls and pins. I asked the same question because I wanted F47's on my CVO. As I recall the non CVO bikes use pins in the hand controls and the CVO's do not and the holes would exposed and look like chit on the CVO.

Because the cvos have the pin on the left and everyone else has the pin on the right. Pull it out and it shouldn't matter

If it's just the pin, pull it out or hammer it in. I have the Lo's and love them. Can't think of another reason at all why they wouldn't work although I also don't see why the CVO would have a different pin placement. Sounds like higher manufacturing costs to make that happen.

This^^^ FLSTFI Dave should be able to chime in next time he logs in. He changed bars on his '15 and they send the non cvo bars. Big holes in them by the controls.

They only pin on a CVO (15 +) is the one in the middle. I've got one. No pins anywhere else.

I do not know, but Vinditka has the Nomad bars, they are the chiseled style 10". There website says the can make them for the CVO. They are adjustable forward and back and should not raise your arm position, they just help the crappy wrist angle.

It does not make sense at all to me.

The Road Glide, and road glide special use the same bars, and same handle bar clamps with pins on both side. They also have a pin at the center clamp. The 15 and 16 CVO Road Glide Ultra's used different bars. These bars use normal handle bar clamps and have no pins on either side. They do have the center pin which is easily pulled.

Looking at my 18 CVO RG, it has the regular Road Glide and Road Glide Special handle bar clamps with the big ugly weights. There I believe it will have pins just like the non CVO road glides.

Very true. The CVO RGU could not use regular road glide bars, they had to be special with no holes at the handle bar clamp area.

My bet is the Motor Company idiots though the 18 CVO Road Glide had the same bars as the 15 and 16 CVO Road Glide Ultras with no bar end holes.

I bet if you look at the HD chilled bars, they have the holes for the pin at each end of the bar and the center. I would then bet they work just fine on the 18 CVO RG.

There have been so many times the MoCo is wrong on what fits and what doesn't. If I believe the MoCo then my 13 King would not have internally wired heated grips. My 18 would not have a CB and so on.
