'sup yall...
I looked in all the other threads and couldn't find any info as to if the handlebars of a VRSCA would fit on my '06 D. I like how the A's are a little more pulled back and higher. Anybody know if they'd fit? If yes, are they hard/expensive to install? Or or, can I just put a riser on my stock D handlebars?

Any help would be cool.
Mucho thanks.

The A bars are actualy "T" bars with the riser built into them, so they would not work. However there is a thing called "reduced reach" bars that you can get from Harley that has a bit more pull back. Any replacement bars on the D's are pretty easy to swap. If you don't have one already, I'd highly recommend you get a service manual...it explains all that stuff and will more than pay for itself in a short time! :)

You could use the "A" bars if you go with the clam shell from an "A". Not sure if the gauges would work in the housing though. :2cents:

See, now that's the beauty of it...you can look in any Dennis Kirk or J&P or Drag Specialties catalog and find a suitable 1" bar you want and fit it! Of course, you are going to be looking at maybe needing new cables and brake/clutch lines then, but still...there are lots of non-HD options out there!!! Just make sure the knurled sections are the right measurement and you'll be fine! :thumb:

If you keep your bike and do your own mods the service manual is a must have! even with the info you get here on the forum. I put Nightmares old D bars on my DX and the manual was there to help me, right there, on the spot and the job went smooth. Good luck.

D Bars onto DX

EZE- When you put on those D bars, did you have to change out the cables or will the cables on the DX be long enough? I need to move back slightly on my 08 DX to get more comfortable.

Everything is long enough. The tightest fit was the brakes but they fit too. You will love the result.I had mine powder coated black (of course) Good luck
