    Hi

    Well, I have just purchased my first Harley, which is a 2006 Road King Classic, love it!. Being 6ft 6", I need to change the factory handlebars.

    Will I need to alter the cables and lines for a set of handlebars that are:
    36"ACROSS HAVE 8" RAISE AND 5" PULL BACK

    Thanks Gary

    yes you will need new cables and extend the wiring there usually 2-3 inches to spare and thats it

    You should find someone that switched to the police heritage bars from HD. They fit the RK w/same cables and most people (small and tall) like the way they fit. Search the old messages here and you will see. Only $100 for the bars and a few hours to swap. If you don't like it, you won't be out much.

    I installed the Heritage bars on my 05 RK. No wire or cable extensions. Made a hugh difference.
