RGU wrist angle?

Does anybody know the handlebar wrist angle on the 17 Road Glide Ultra? Thanks.

It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.

Hi Oldbie; I reckon you are talking about the stock seat and handlebars on the 2017 RGU.
Well, it depends a lot on the riders height, anatomy (long arms/short arms etc.) But here is a picture of motorjourno Nic de Zena and he is 5.8
and not much wrist-angle there.

I donít know the specific angle, but Iím sure if you delved into the archives of the Inquisition youíd find it there.

I almost converted to Catholicism before I changed the bars on mine.

Oy! What bars did you install?

Vindikta Marauders. I went with 16". I'm 6'2" and that height if very comfortable, plus the wrist angle is much more neutral.

My RGU bars suck, wrist angle way to high...the outside of my gloves are worn through from palm pressure...

I think there were some old posts with pics, maybe some kind folks could load up comparison photos from above?...

I think I want 10" to keep my hands out of the open air as much as possible... but the chizeled dont have the pullback...

I liked the drag bars on my 74 Superglide and my 77 Lowrider. Not a viable option on my RGU.

I personally love the stock RGU bars. I wish I could easily (cheaply) mount a pair on the road king.

The 2016 RGU pt# is 55800436 for the handlebars, according to the HD book tip to tip is 30.75in, pullback is 8.5in, rise is 11.75in, I am assuming the bars are the same for the 17's

If youíre patient, some of us might soon have a takeoff set that you might be able to pick up...
