Has anybody changed their stock vrscb bars for vrscdx drag bars or vrscse bars (or close after market bar?) using stock controls? without major changes to clutch, brake and throttle lines?? I am looking for a more aggressive feel & look.

I think it should work. Depends on the drag bars you're going with, but typically drag style bars would have a shorter spread than the stock bars, if that's the case than there should be no need to be changing out cables.

A simple swap and go! I know drag bars are very cheap and as Gracie said everything will just swap over easily. SE bars are much the same as B and XR bars in as much as the width but I have a feeling SE bars are a little wider. If you want drag bars, use the DX or X bars.

Yeah thanks for back-up, My local Harley shop was trying to treat me like a mechanical retard and trying to get me to trade in my bike for a new one because of my crazy idea!!!

Yes.. they are not flat bars.(broomstick). am guessing the rise is to clear the turnsignals

the X bars are flat, but they do have a slight bit of pullback...

you could always put those sporty bars on there that are a straight chrome bar, no rise and no pullback

I just did this mod to my wife's B last week. I even drilled the bars and routed all the electrical wires through them. No issues at all with cables. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Merry Christmas!

Buying a set of bars is a LOT cheaper than buying a whole new bike. I'm with the others, putting drag bars on should be a simple swap. There should be extra slack in your lines because the drag bars are lower rise and further forward. Just about any of the bars you mentioned should work. Good luck with your mod.

Awesome look. I am going with Zbars and risers only to clean it up. Once I get the foot controls off everything goes to the powdercoater.
