For those running the Outlawz bars from Wild One: How much more pullback than stock bars did you get? I held a set of 12" Outlawz up on my bike and noticed very little difference in pullback from the stock bars. They were higher, which was nice but pullback seemed insignificant. Going up to 14" would give more height but pullback is still listed as 8". I don't want to be reaching forward for the bars as I do with stock. Thanks for any info....

The measure of pullback on a bar is the perpendicular distance from the cross member (where it attaches) to the grip. However, the feel of pullback really depends on how you mount them. I run the 14" Outlawz, I wanted up and closer to me so I didn't have to lean forward. I've mounted mine so they look visually in line with the front forks. I had both 12" and 14" Outlawz at the house (yeah, I paid the $15 in return shipping just to be able to mock them both up - I didn't want to wire twice). I layed a tape measure from the mounting location along the seat (tank removed) and ran a plumb bob down to measure pullback at that mounting angle (in line with forks). Doing this, I measured about 1" pullback for the 12" and 2" pullback for the 14". The rise was obviously significant over stock ... but it's not actually 12" or 14" due to the angle of the mount. Again, probably about 1 - 1.5" rise difference between 12s and 14s.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
G

You can tilt the bars back however far you like on a Road Glide. Just loosen the riser clamp bolts (kind of a pain on a shark) and adjust them to where you want them.

I went opposite by pushing mine as far forward as possible. I must say they are the most comfortable bars I have ever had.

1" pullback for the 12's and 2" for the 14's ? Does that mean beyond the stock pullback position? Just trying to envision where the grips would be compared to stock bars when they are aligned with the forks.

Correct, measurements are from stock position.
