I'm debating between installing 12" or 14" Factory 47 Signature bars on my 2018 RGS. Does anybody have side view pics of these with the bars in line with the forks and factory windshield? I'm leaning towards 14s but don't like the look of handlebars above the windshield.

I'm not a fan of the look of the 14s over the fairing either. I went with the 12s. And am glad I did. I don't have the stock shield though. I have the 14" KW Sportflare. With the 12s and the cvo solo that's at least 1.5 to 2" down and back I'm pretty much in the same position as the 14s without the look. When I have my hammock seat on for the long haul it sits me back up but I'm ok with that arm position too. If the look of the 14s bothers you and your like me. Go with your gut.

Yall ride Road Glides for pete's sake, so you already prefer comfort over appearance. I find this aversion to handlebars "above the windshield" to be humorous. :)
See and I think it's the best looking bike Harley makes. :grin:

Save your money and go for KST Renegades, same style and half the price :)

I have them on my 2018 RGS and luv them, my local HD dealer stocks them so that must say something about quality

I have the 14's and love em. (But I don't have the factory shield.) Just added the engine guards this weekend too! I was told when I was looking at bars by several people to go taller than what you thought you needed. So I went with the 14's. Glad I did!

Stock windshield left the bike the first month. These are the 12" F47 bars with a 14" LRS Thresher.

I put 12 inch Signature bars on my brother's orange 2017 RGS. They are nice but I personally don't like the riding position with higher bars and even they were a bit too high. I have been considering the 10 inch signature bars like yours. Do you have any other photos? I want to add them to my blue 2017 RGS. It has a 9" Nation Cycle V stream windshield and I think the 10 inch bars will look perfect with it. I love it because it doesn't look much taller than the stock shield, but works much better. I tried to attach photos of both bikes, but not sure if they are going to work. I've also hesitated on installing the bars because I want to swap over my heated hand grips. I have the basic HD black rubber heated grips with all internal wiring. I searched google and all the forums to see if anyone had done it, but surprisingly enough I couldn't find a single photo or thread confirming they will work. I did find one where someone installed grips wit external wires and had to cut the housing so they would work. After Oakland HD said they "think" they will work, I spoke wit the techs at factory 47. I was assured they would, so after I order and install them I will add a post with photos.
