I am thinking of getting drag bars either Wild 1 or Carlini does anyone have them? and if so have a picture. I am thinking of the 4" rise from Wild1 or 5" from Carlini the stock bars I have now are comfortable the drag bars would be just for looks but I still need comfort.

I've got the 5" rise carlinis on mine. I've posted pics of mine in other threads, so I cant repost 'em. Search under my name, or I can send them to your pm.

Hmmm, I measured the rise on mine and they were exactly 5". I think they may have guessed wrong by looking at the pictures. My bars definitely have 5" rise, I just double checked. Unless I'm measuring wrong....I'm measuring the length of the "risers" themselves. So I'm not including the 1.5" of actual bar width, if that makes sense.

Drag Bars

I sent them the pictures that Honkeylips sent me of his bike they said they were 7" rise he said 5" rise wouldn't clear the gauges or tank on a Fatboy, I am not sure how they measure those things? I have screwed around with different bends on my Motocross handlebars and can't figure how they measure those things either I need visuals lol Honkeylips bars look good thats what I am trying get!!

yes i did see them and i love thos bars.....
i currently have the 9 inch hoghandles.
i think i got screwed from the dealer when i asked for them.
the salesman showed me his and i like them but now they are starting to turn funny colors only after less then a year.
so i think i gotr his used ones and he got my new ones....it's a long story so thats why i will NOT go to a DEALER for anything anymore STEALER is more the term

i have 2 local wrenches here i can go to.

but if you say that these bars that are on honklips bike are
clean sweeps with a 7 inch rise, and carlini say's that 5 will not fit at all then i will get these as well.

it give the illusion of a shorter rise that the hoghandles and will make a fatbot look so much more a drag bike.


i will post pics when i get mine installed.

I don't have a part number because the previous owner put them on. I do know they are Carlini's cause it says so on the bar. I also know they are 5" rise, again assuming I'm measuring correctly. The way I'm measuring is that if you basically chopped off the horizontal handlebar portion, leaving just the 'risers', those 'risers' measure 5" exactly. I also have no clearance issues what-so-ever.
