Handlebars
« on: May 07, 2019, 02:49:46 PM »

Anyone in the clarksville tn area can recommend a shop to do a handle bar swap on an 09 cvo road glide. Dealer quoted me 10 hours @ $95 per hour. Thanks

You can do it if you're the least bit handy with wrenches...it is very time consuming but there are plenty of videos on youtube that can guide you through it.  Sharks are much easier to swap than Batwings.

I'm leaning towards the factory 47 bars 14 inch.

On a pre-Rushmore Limited that may be about right. On a Road Glide it sounds excessive.

I have done three sets of bars now by myself. It is intimidating at first but not as bad as you may think. As mentioned above watch some YouTube videos. There are some excellent ones online that walk you all the way through it.

The feeling of doing it yourself and the fatter wallet are awesome!

Agreed! I just put 10" bars on my 13 Ultra this winter. First time bar swap for me. The you tube videos were an excellent learning tool. I would think the RGs would be easier than the batwings....Do it!  ;D
