Bars

Ive found allot of the different handle bars available, but I am 5'7" tall and need a different set for my 08 1300 tourer. Its a stretch. What do you recommend?

bars

I,m 5.6 found stock bars a (reach) I installed a set of buckhorn bars its made it so I don't have to grab / pull its like fingertip steering. cables etc fit you have to watch as some bars are a bit thicker so grips are hard to install. ps I also put a set of risers on its a 650 classic

Thanks Roadster. Do you know if your 650 bars are the same as my 1300? I think the 950 bars are but I don't know about the 650.

If you go with 2010-2012 vstar 1300 bars there is no cables needed no rerouting and you get 16 inches of pullback instead of the 13 you get now

You have to reroute the cables unless you go with vstar bars also different grips. There is a wiki page that shows the height width and pullback on several different bars. I am at work so not able to send link.

Get some cheap pvc and hold it up to what feels comfortable and get a friend to measure the distance. Get the stock dimensions and then search for bars that have the extra pull back you want. I am sure the 1300s are 1" as well so you can use any bar from any manufacturer as long as it fits inside the mounts. Also, a cheap set of risers with a 4 or 6 inch pullback may help you with only swapping those out as well.
