Replacement Fat Boy Handle Bars

Good evening everyone. Please grab a bar stool and have a cold one on me.

I?d like to ask for a few suggestions for a replacement set of handlebars for my ?03 Fat Boy. To me, the stock bars are just an inch or two too far forward, no matter how I have them angled. I?d like to find a pair of bars that are just a bit farther backward to allow me to lean back a bit more in the seat. That would make the longer rides more comfy.

Also, I?d like to get by without having to redo any cables or wires. Is that possible if I?m only trying to bring the controls an inch or two closer?

Thanks for the experienced help.

Be sure to have another on me before you go.

I just threw a set of Wild One 518's on my Fatboy(2002). You WILL have to add some wiring (which means soldering and shrink wrap). Running the wires through the bars was real easy....I just taped them together(after removing the "sleeve") and they went through like nothin,just had to grab them with a pair of needlenose when they reached the opening.Also, had to dremel the wire slot at the controls a little bigger,so the signal light wire could run inside the bars without being pinched. Nice bars,they improve the "comfort factor" a lot.
Cables are ok with the 518's. The brake line just barely makes it .
