Tried searching for this however did not see anything, has anyone put on the reduced reach handle bars on a street glide? I am 5'9" with short arms so I seem to be reaching forward that my arms are straight out when riding. The description seems like they may come back to far and my dealer does not have a fitment station. So thought I would see if anyone had put them on. Also open to aftermarket as well if there are any suggestions. Thanks for any help.

Yes, I got the reduced reach bars on my 2014 Street Glide and they are making all the difference to me in comfort and in the curves. They are the ones that are 2 inches closer. They were expensive as they required 3 hours of labor to install but for me, comfort is everything when you ride long days on a trip. I feel more in control too, more aggressive in the curves.

Well worth the money imho. I have them on my '14 S G and they went along way in curing my lower back ache issues on long rides. The stock bars suck. But then the Mo Co knows this. The whole idea is to make you up grade and spend more money.
