Bars for 1100 classic

I am not really happy with the stock bars on my 08 1100 classic. I feel like I'm reaching too far to hold them comfortably while riding. Are there other bars available that will give me another 2" or 3" of pullback? I have read of people putting RSTD bars on the 950 and 1300. Will those bars fit on my 1100? What are my options?

If the spread/width of your stock bars is comfortable then probably your easiest solution would be to add a set of pullback risers. Much less work than swapping bars, controls, etc.

I'm having a similar issue with my 1100 classic. One thing that I am looking into is different risers. I tend to have a leaned forward stance due to short arms. This website may help in your search if you decide to go that route. It shows how a person sits on the bike with different adjustments based off their inseam and height.

Hopefully that gives you another option to making the bike fit better.

Anybody have pics of their 1100 with the RSTD bars installed? Even better would be before and after pics.

Has anyone tried the Baron's Nostalgia bars? They look like they might be the ticket...
