Road Glide Fat Ape Bars

Has anyone installed Road Glide Fat Ape bars? It is a Harley part. I like the look and I'm just wondering how they feel. I'm 5'8" with a 30 inch inseam and thinking about some type of apes. 30 years of riding HDs and always kept stock bars so any info would be helpful.

Hey, I am going to put them in my RGU 2017 before Xmas. I have already ordered them in Chrome. I can't wait to get them in.

I am 6.3, but you shouldn't worry as their pull back is quite large (9.25"). I am not sure about the possition of your hands with regards to your shoulders. In my case, I am pretty sure there will be below my shoulders.

My RGU have higher stock bars than the RGS (11.75 in my RGU vs 10.25 or so in the RGS).

Send you some pictures with the stock ones (I have a detachable Tour Pack):

Thanks for the pics. I actually wound up going with the Klock Werks Klip Hanger bars. I like the look and also that they are very adjustable to many different positions. I personally don't know anyone who has them so I hope I like them. I will post pics once they are installed. I'm still not sure if I want to pay or do it myself. Dealer gave me a price of $954 and indy shop $180. As I have said on many other post, dealers are thieves that should be avoided whenever possible!

Looking forward to seeing what these look like. I got some 12" bars but the wrist angle bothers me. Seems this wouldn't be a problem with Klock Works.

Did you get 10 or 14"?

I'm just finishing up putting the 13 inch road6 customs bars on mine..along with a few other mods this winter.the project is kinda snow balling on me though.

At 6'3",these are hitting me around upper chest hieght,depending on which seat is on it.I'm gonna love em.

at 340 for the bars and kit,way cheaper than moco.
