Stoopid bar question

My 2010 RG is at the bodyshop getting torn down to get ready to paint, if it were here I'd look myself. Will stock HD bars from say.... a Dyna (street bob) fit the RG? I have 2 sets of apes 10" & 13" the 10's are black & would look really good....if they fit.

You could make it work. But there is some small issues with the way that the speedo cover comes over the bar. Plus it might not look as good as a touring style bar.

What kind of bars are they?? Anything can work if your willing to put the time and effort into it.

Buddy did just that with his 2003 RoadGlide. Dyna bars were a perfect fit no changes were needed as far as cables and wires. Don't know about your 2010 but nothing is impossible. It just may cost more and take a little longer!!!

Should work, just have to notch the throttle side for the TBW.

'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

Thanks,
I figured since I already have the bars & they're practically new, the black bars will go nice with the new paint. Plus, I'd like to get a little more height out of the bars & these are 10" mini apes.

... and drill a large hole for the TBW wires to enter the bar at the center.

I'm adding a little color I have a House of Kolor color picked out.
I figure it should be done by Febuary. I'll post pictures then.
