    Hi, 

    Anyone tried Rocker C's V-shape handlebar on dyna (Wide Glide) particular? 

    Would the pull back too much for Dyna?

    You’ll need to check the bar centres I.e. the distance between the holes in the top triple tree to see If they’ll fit.
    Do a forum search for 
    “stock handlebar reference chart”

    Me thinks the chrome were on the Rocker "C" version, usually Blue, Blue frame, chrome fork legs, oil tank, etc.
    The grey was on the Rocker as you see with grey wheels, fork legs, rocker covers, oil tank and softail etc
    As you can see from Bloodog's pics, the riser is a solid one piece, not two as on a WG so you gotta make sure the hole centres line up.

    I have had dirt bikes all my life and the mini apes felt strange to me, plus I had a breakout previous to the rocker.
    My opinion was the v-bar on the Rocker looked shit 
    Now with the few changes I recon my Rocker looks a lot better 
    Handling wise also much better with the flat bars 
    Having said that Rockers don't handle well

    I think the stock bar on my wide glide looks shit. But handling pretty good. Hesitating if I want to change it.

    Rotate the bars downwards more (make sure indicators are clear of the tank) and I think they tick the boxes for both form and function? Personal choice of course.

    Fat bob bars 

    I have seen this picture before. The owner used 2 inch riser extension from DKCustom. 

    I bought 3" extension from them already. 

    The stock bar is 3" rise on a 5" riser. Dyna fatbob use the same riser with drag bar. 

    My theory is, if I use 3" extension and a flat drag bar, then I shouldn't need the change the cable and everything else. The only concern is, I don't want pull back too much. I don't know 3" extension + 5" riser and fatbob drag bar, would give me excessive pull back. 

    The one in photo is one of my mod option. The other one is Rocker C V bar.
