Chizeled Lo Bar & short people problems...

So I took a gamble and purchased the Chizeled Lo Bars for my 2019 RGS, love how they look. Installed and am extremely uncomfortable with them. I'm 5'6" with a 27" inseam and T-rex arms compared to most people. I punched out the locating pin in the clamp and rotated the bar back a little bit so I'm not reaching as far for them but now find them too low. I'm now sitting on the bike 'clamshelled', sorta like how my '13 Nightrod is.

Does anyone have any recommendations on bars that are simliar to the Chizeled Lo's in design? I found the stock bars to be pretty comfortable in terms of pull back but they weren't high enough. I don't want huge ape hangers and thought the Chizeled Lo in pics looked perfect in height, now with it angled back it's pretty low. Does anyone have the stock bar measurements for the 19 RGS? I want a little more height but prefer my hands to stay somewhat behind the fairing. TIA

Look up the specs of yours and compare them to the Factory 47s. See what the pullback and width is compared to yours. I know the best bar for what you want wont go on yours without a bunch of work. Krome Werks 2+2 sweepers. See can find a bar with the sweepers specs. 2+2 is 2 up and 2 closer to you. They're 1" at the clamp.last I knew. See the KW site to see if they made a 1.25" clamping area.

I have the Road 6 Customs Road Glide Standard Apes 11 inch which I'm pretty happy with. They are not too wide and were easy to pull wires through. They also have 13's which might give you the pull back you desire. I'm 5'7''and if I were to do it again I think I will try the 13's.

"bad attitude" from JSR Customs. Have a bend in the bottom to bring them closer. Happy with mine and great customer service.
