I'm 5'9" and got the 518's because I didn't think the 508's would have enough pullback also. The 518's are almost perfect.johnny_red said:Hi everyone,
I’d like to change the bars on my 04 Fatboy, but being on the other side of the world it’s not possible to walk into a store and compare different ones, so I’m hoping to get some hands on advice here. I’m 5’8”, with a Lepera Daytona Sport seat and looking at the Wild 1’s site trying to decide between the Road King 508’s and 518’s. (Due to a lower back problem, I don’t think the 504”s would offer enough pullback for me) I’m leaning towards the 518’s and was hoping to hear from anyone similar in height to me who may have had either on a Fatboy.
If the lepera moves you closer, then 518's should be ok. If it moves you back, you'll be reaching a bit.
I'll only add that what is comfortable to someone may not be to another.
