Rushmore Handlebar Adjustment

Hey everyone, I thought I remembered seeing a thread about rolling the stock bars forward on the Rushmore bikes, but I can't seem to find it now. Has anyone done this? Trying to find a video/guide or some tips on doing this. I really hate the bars, comfort wise and look wise. Figured I could roll them forward until I get a nice set of aftermarket bars. Thanks

There is a retention pin in the center of the bars that you have to knock out with a small punch. It can take a little bit of work and finesse (especially if you don't want to slip and muck up your bars). Once that pin is out, you can rotate the bars and retighten the clamp.

Here is link to the thread by Sethjamto;


https://www.roadglide.org/24-controls...s-forward.html



I did this on my 2016 FLTRU, rolled them ahead until the bottom of the slot was even with the bottom clamp = no pinched wires.

I pulled the pin with a set of vise grips instead of driving it thru with a punch.

Recommend a second set of hands if you are not going to disconnect any wiring. Helps to hold the handlebars while you have them out of the bottom clamp and for re-positioning to where you like them.

The handlebar pin is press fitted into place.

I also just used a pair of vise grips to remove it.

It's a 15 minute task that you can easily do yourself.

I think it's easier to "tap" it out. I used a hammer and old screw driver, 3 sacks and it was done.

This is what I did. 3 taps and it was flush and out of the way.

Thanks guys, took me about 20 minutes. Controls won't budge though, so just riding how they are until I grind that pin down

That nub on the controls snaps off surprisingly easy. I put the unit on a bench, and whacked it off with a screw driver and a hammer.
