Sammahoney wants to know Dino or Syn?
Back Issue

Hi all, I have a 2007 Heritage Classic and after a long ride my lower back twinges a bit. Sometimes i feel as though im stretching for the handlebars a bit so my question is, what kind of handlebars could i replace the stock ones with, without drastic work changing cables and wires? Or would a seat with a riders backrest provide the support i need?

if your thinking about a seat with backrest do that before the handlebars since it can change your position and if you change bars first you may end up doing it again .
A backrest is a nice addition I love them .

Get a Mustang seat. I have Carlini bars on a Heritage. Quite comfortable.

Nitram_b4 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
You could try adjusting the angle of your bars or standard height offset risers that would set the bars back a little

Use a pair of pullback risers if you like the bars. And adjust the angle a bit....under $100...

Cheers for the responses i appreciate it. With the pull back risers will i need to redo my cables or will there be enough slack to cover the slightly increased height?
