i installed a set of 16 in kst kustom apehangers on my 11 roadglide over the winter....just got her out today for the first run this season and noticed the bars are shaking quite bad when idling on the kickstand...I figure I must need to replace the bushings and just wondering what the recommendations were for 16s on a roadglide...thanks in advance for any help...

There's a lot longer tubing required for 16" bars which will flex more than the stock bars. My 12.5" bars do the same. example.... a 12 foot pole is more flexible than a 4 foot pole. if you understand what I'm saying.

That explains a lot! I was starting to think I needed to go see the Doc about the little blue pill. :rolleyes:

Taller bars are going to shake more at idol as stated already but I would still upgrade the riser bushings to give you more stability. The stock bushings just don't cut it with taller bars.
