Winter project...HANDLEBARS!

Looking for some help where to start my research regarding replacing the stock bars on my 2018 FLTRXS. I measured the stock bars.

width-34.75"
pullback-10"
rise-9"

1. Does anyone know the HD part number for the stock bars so I can find the listed dimensions from stock for comparison?
2. Looking for slightly narrower(32")slightly higher(10-12") slight more pullback(11-12")
3. Looked at Harley chizeled lo(558000569)...they are narrower(31.6") but the rise is still 9" and the pullback is only 6.2"
Any help would be appreciated.

I ordered a set of bars from FMB Choppers and they made the bars to my exact measurements. Pick a style, email Dave prior, and give him the measurements that you want, then wait a few weeks with anticipation.

If you are measuring the width with the bars, the grips add about 1/2" each side to OAW.

Pic of my bar is raw steel, I had them chromed locally. They are the 16" Phatty Blazed bars, 9" center width, 33" OAW, and 8" of pullback (I have an 08 RG). They fit perfect, wish I had done it sooner.

Sounds expensive. They look great on your scoot! A little higher than I'm looking for. I'll check them out if I don't find what I'm looking for. Thanks.

If you are spending money on anything for comfort on your bike: bars, tires, suspension, and a good saddle are worth every penny. The shiny chrome stuff should all wait until you get those three things dialed.

I've seen a chart floating around here in a handlebar thread that shows part numbers and measurements for Harley brand bars. Might help in finding what you want. I tried some road king bars.

If you have the chrome bars and the parts/accessories book, look up the bars for the road glide in black. I believe they are the same as the stock chrome bars. Than look up that part number on the page showing the specs for the bars. Not sure, but think they are the same.

I had a set made (powder coated black) from JSR Customs for a very good price.

If you're good with the stock seat, then change out your bars. If you not, then change your seat first. It may change your position enough to make your perfect bars not so perfect. Good luck with your search. Took me two tries to get it right.

Also pull out the pin and try rolling your stock bars forward or backward, maybe that's all you'll need, and spend that money on something else.

Road 6 Customs Standard Apes were about the same width as my stock bars with less pull back. I liked the stock look so I went with the standards apes. I got my seat first (down and back about 1.5") then decided that the 13" bars were good for me... They have been great bars. I'm 5'-10" with a 31" inseam
