Question Question on handlebars

Hello all,

I think this has been talked about somewhere before but since I cant find it I figured I would just ask again. I want to sit further back when on my 07 1300 tourer but I dont want to hassle with changing out all the cables and what not. I believe i read somewhere before tgis can be accomplished with a different yamahas bars. I just can remember what bike. Anyway i like the level they are at but would like to have them a few inches closer to help with my bad back and fatigue from long rides. I have a awesome driver backrest but im still having to lean forward with how i sit/my arm length i guess. Thanks in advance.

I think I remember seeing a post and the guy said bars from a Roadliner will work, I guess they come back further. Not sure if you need to change over any cables/lines.

If you buy the 2010 Vstar 1300 bars you do not have to change cables and it gives you 3" more pullback
