Has anyone tried these different bars ? can anyone give me any kind of comparison between the 2 . I have a 2011 RG custom .Need at least 2 '' more pullback and could use at least 2 '' more in height. I am am 5'9'' w 32'' inseam.
I do like the width of the stock bars .

Thanks for the reply 93-331-29psi , can you elaborate on the width aspect of the 5515's as opposed to the narrower stock bars ? .the 515's seem to be ideal for me in regards to the heigth and pullback but the width is a little disconcerning for me .

The 36" width will grow on you quickly. I was concerned about this until I test fit them 17k miles ago and I love them. As much as I like them though I will be changing them out for some BR sweeping beaters 1.5" bars this winter because I want a little more height and pullback.

Best advise is for new bars is to attend a local bike night.... You can see the various set ups and even ask to sit on a bike to feel for yourself. While a short sit in a parking lot won't get you the same knowing as a 200 mile ride will. It'll at least let you know if they'll be bearable, but then again ANYTHING is better than the shitty bars that come on these from the MoCo.

For me they're alot more comfy. I've got mine pushed farther forward than the forks. Some windshields will require them to be adjusted back or they hit on lock to lock. With my windsplitter or windvest I have plenty of room. With my Cee bailey's I have to pull them in some.

I went with wild 1 10 in. rise--should have gone with 12 in. just preference--5-10 32 inseam--long arms-keep in mind these will be 38 in. wide after grips-lot of good leverage for the push....good luck

I'm with diesel did the 10s wish we'd have gone 12 rise. I'm 6'5, still comfy but 12's would have been better
