    My son is going to put forward controls on his 2005 1200R but also wants to sit more upright rather than leaning forward on his bars. Anyone put Heritage bars on a Sporster? Any recommendation of a bar that works well with this goal in mind? Thanks!

    I'm currently using my old Heritage / Fatboy bars on my 1995 1200.
    It gave me an upright, wider handle I was after. My dimensions are:

    Width grip to grip= 33"

    Rise = 8"

    Pullback= 12"

    I had no problems using the exisiting controls for the change. You may want to check your cable lengths to confirm that on your son's bike.
    They look unsymmetrical for a narrow glide. But it was all about rider comfort for me.

    I know the bars that are on the Street Bobs are a big upgrade that alot of folks are doing on there Sporties. Mini Apes or somethen like that.
