Harley bars

Couple weeks ago I found a post on--can't remember which forum(CRS ya know-LOL) showing H.D. bars with the clutch side with 1/2" indent where clutch handle is mounted. Need this bar for my now shortened reach due to breaking my wrist into 15 pieces. Healed but shorter. Anyone seen this?? I can't find it for life of me. Thanks for any help. Ride safe, Gary

I have run HD bars on three different bikes.

That indent is not "necessary". It's kind of a convienence for cables coming out of the switch boxes, but is not critical to the install.

Actually our switchboxes fit better without indents on the bars.

If you are using stock cables and stock wires, go with "non drilled" "non dimpled" bars.

I get mine from Flanders and am very happy with them.

While it may be impossible to please everyone, pissing them off is certainly within my reach.

Viper: I'm never clear in my qiestions! LOL By 'indent' I meant the bar is made so the clutch grip is actually a 1/2" closer---the bar flows down to where top of grip would be then it turns inward a 1/2" for remainder of bar and that last part is still same size as grip mount. Gary

I am running Flanders 650-28725, they are an Ultra Classic F1 style that have 2 more inches of rise and 3 more inches of pullback.

My bike is an '06 but I do have aftermarket cables, wires were fine and I am using taller risers.

It's sort of like having mini apes with extra pull back.

I have short arms and I like the hand position this gives me.
