Who all has them?Other than the HD bars(I have for the moment).I got this bug and I'm looking for info from the people who have them.

What I need to know is what length ,rise,and pullback you are running.?
And what did you do with the clam shell(gage cluster).

Vinny, my T-bars are 30 inches wide. They have a rise of 8 and a pullback of 8 I believe. I am also 5'4" so they had to be that size for me. It has some to do with your height, arm length etc. The ones with a 4" rise were a real stretch for someone of my stature. That seems to be the normal for the t-bars I have seen. Good luck!

Thanks Dan,
What did you do for the gage cluster?Got any pics?How did your Thr.cables and brake,clutch lines fit?
I'm 5'10 so I would like to go with a 4" rise and 30"wide T-bar, or get some stock bars and grind the risers off,and weld some drag bar to them.That way I can use the gage cluster.

I got an aftermarket airbox from Customworks for the cluster and am having it painted now. The throttle cables are fine but the other lines I have to replace, they are too short to reach the bars. But the 4" rise bars should be fine to use the stock stuff. I am hoping to have pics by Tuesday, that is when all is supposed to be done. Of course it was supposed to be done tomorrow but you know how that goes.

How did you route the wires from the controls (I assume they're inside the bars)? Do you have any pics?

Check out the Rizoma bars...... solves the problem with the cluster guage.
Check out badrods pics in the forum gallery for a good example.

VrodRick74, do you have the vmod drag bars? I've been considering these but would like some feedback as well as some pics from different angles.

I too would love to see a few pics of the V-Mod drag bars on a bike and maybe a couple different angles.

Finally, I can't wait. Do the wires get routed internally on those dragbars jfrost?

You can hide wires in those bars by drilling a hole in the dimple where the controls go and one big hole in the middle of the clamshell.

If you want the wires routed internally, you can request it of Chopper Steve and he will drill for you. They normally come with the "dimples" on each side, which assist in hiding the cabling somewhat. Either way. BTW I am 5'10'' too and they feel as though they are going to be comfortable.

I just got done welding the HD drag (part#56558-95) for FXSTB and sporties to my stcok risers. Will do the install tomorrow These bars are only 27" wide and have a pull back of 3.88. Thinking of cutting the riser down some also.

Yeah, they run through the bars. I had someone do it for me, I screwed it up when I tried myself.
I'm actually interested in how you routed them from the point the wires exit the bars and go into the triple tree. I assume the holes in the bars are above the triple tree so the wires are exposed.
