Wild 1 WO 575 vs WO 515

Has anyone tried these different bars ? can anyone give me any kind of comparison between the 2 . I have a 2011 RG custom .Need at least 2 '' more pullback and could use at least 2 '' more in height. I am am 5'9'' w 32'' inseam.
I do like the width of the stock bars .

I've got the WO515 and there's almost enough pullback for me. If I had to do it again I'd have gone with the 12.5" bars. If you need only 2" the 515 should be fitting.

Thanks for the reply 93-331-29psi , can you elaborate on the width aspect of the 5515's as opposed to the narrower stock bars ? .the 515's seem to be ideal for me in regards to the heigth and pullback but the width is a little disconcerning for me .

Coolblue,

There is a picture of the WO515 bars installed on my 12 FLTRX with the stock bars laid on top for comparison in this link:

The 36" width will grow on you quickly. I was concerned about this until I test fit them 17k miles ago and I love them. As much as I like them though I will be changing them out for some BR sweeping beaters 1.5" bars this winter because I want a little more height and pullback.

Best advise is for new bars is to attend a local bike night.... You can see the various set ups and even ask to sit on a bike to feel for yourself. While a short sit in a parking lot won't get you the same knowing as a 200 mile ride will. It'll at least let you know if they'll be bearable, but then again ANYTHING is better than the shitty bars that come on these from the MoCo.

Yeah most definitely and most likely they'll be wired as well (minus plugs).
