I'm going to be picking up some santee 12" tbars tomorrow for the new glide. I looked and didn't see anything on the forum about these...is there anyone has them or knows someone who does? I'm hoping I can put them on with the stock cables.

I don't know what year your bike is but I would say definitly. There is plenty of wire for the insides up to about 14" on the newer bikes, and your clutch and brake cables should fit fine. You may have to re-route the clutch but it should fit because your going T-bars. 12" is about the limit you can go with cables depending on your pullback. I don't think you'll have a problem because you have no pull back.

Does anyone have a video or know of a video that will explain the steps of install of tbars on a rgc? I'm going to attempt this on my own rather then pay 400 to a shop.

forum member bigjim1661 from Hole shot choppers might be able to give you some recommendations/ tips. He sells T bars and had them on his RoadGlide, but someone else on here bought the bike i think.
yeah i was interested in his bike as well. but i got a good deal on a brand new one.

man i am the same way! they didnt look that cool but once on they are sick...and the feel is great! they kinda have a bend to them that comes to a very relaxed feel while riding.
