2012 night rod, ready for new bars asap

looking for some bars with some more rise and pullback. the stock bars have me crouched over which is great for aggresive riding, but not for when I'm cruising.

anyone have any suggestions? I came off a warrior that I had put t-bars on and loved them.

Some people use the bars off of the sportsters but you will have to get longer brake lines if you change bars.

i am using Nightster handlebars and they are very comfortable. i have a 2008 Non ABS VRSCDX and did not have to change anything except the handlebars itself.

I've got XLX Sporster bars on my 011 DX. No need to buy anything other than the bars.

+1 for the Nightster bars. I ordered mine through surdyke. com for $67 bucks shipped (part 56014-09A if you're interested). It gives a little rise and pullback but still helps keep the look intact. I think I have a picture another forum member posted of the bars super-imposed over the original.

I stand corrected on the bars but as you can see the sporty bars are a popular mod. And it won't break the bank.

I picked up the Reduced Reach Handlebar (Black) VRSCDX Models 57466-10 They work well for me and match the bike.

Thanks,
Rod

I bought the stock Vrod bars after having Drag bars on my 07. I love em. A lot easier on the wrists.

I would think the Nightster bars have more pull back : Dimensions (Approximatey) 31.5" wide, 9" pullback, and 6" rise.
Reduced Reach : 28.80" wide 6.25 pullback, and 5.70 rise. (57466-10)
Note: these numbers may be wrong, I would verify with HD website for exact specs.
You will need to check on the Cables and Lines also...

keep us posted if you use the 56014-09A bars on your ride. I would like to use these bars also if I don't have to change the front brake line, my ride has the ABS and according to the info I have the dealer has to change the brake line and bleed the ABS system.
