New 2020 RG Special (Handlebars) - Colorado

I was once a RG rider then switched to Ultra Limited a few years ago and hated every minute of it. So yesterday I bought a 2020 RG Special the Sexy Ballard Red. My question is Im 6'3" 290lbs. Yes I bring the beef. I need Apes on it. preferably 18" and the fatter the better. Can anyone recommend reasonably priced ones? Also, where I can get the wiring harness? Ive always been raped by Harley and paid for them to do all this, now its my turn to actually turn a wrench.

If you have suggestions can you e-mail me directly also? [email protected]
Thanks

FYI....The tallest you can go without having to change the cables is 14. So you'll need new cables as well as wires. The HD wire extensions are pretty reasonable.

Welcome, from New York, to The Greatest Forum on The Internet!
As far as handlebars go everyone has their own likeness.
I have run Wild One Chubby's and now have Factory 47's.
Wild One makes some nice bars but I prefer the Factory 47's as they are 1.5" diameter and easy to wire up.
As has already been stated, if You go above 14" You will need cables and wire extensions.
For cables I prefer Magnum Shielding.
Wire extensions you can go with OEM, Namz Wiring and LA Choppers in no specific order.
A good Google search can put you in the right direction.
Best of Luck and keep Us posted.
