Handlebar Swap

Anyone in the clarksville tn area can recommend a shop to do a handle bar swap on an 09 cvo road glide. Thanks

I know some Indy shops that charge that for pre Rushmore (13 & older) bikes. Especially if you are having to change out the clutch cable and brake lines. It can be done in less time and some do charge less but 10hrs is not all that surprising. Especially if you run into issues.

Alright I will try to find an indy shop in the clarksville/nashville area. If not just fork out the cash and have the dealer do it

Maybe go to Facebook Road Glide Nation or Owner’s and see if someone is in the area that can help you. Not as many people frequent the forums as they once did. I’m sure someone lives in your area would lend a hand, old style has regular wires so it takes a little longer, may 3 to 4 hrs, but definitely not 10, especially if you’ve done it before. I’ve done a few, I think the first one took me about 5- 6 hrs with breaks, the last one took me about 2-1/2. The Rushmore’s are a breeze.

I know people that have taken 4-5 hours just to run the wires through the bars. It all depends on how that goes.

Dont know how handy you are or are not with a wrench, but you could always ask your dealership that if you take the old bars off and bring them to them with the new bars...would they remove the wires/harness from the old and then run them through the new ones for you. This should save you alot of coin and only pay them for the real PITA part of this swap out. Just a thought....

Changing bars really isnt that hard, certainly not almost $1000 hard. Yes the TBW green plug can pe a pain, but outside of that, its just too simple to pay that much to have this done.

I switch back between the stock bars and my apes, and have done it so many times I can swap them in just over an hour.

Give it a try and see If you can do it yourself
