    Want to swap out stock bars for Heritage bars on '07 RKC.
    They want a ton at the shop, so I'm doin it myself. I'm thinking all cables and lines will stretch.
    Anyone with any experiance?

    Cables don't "stretch" but the heritage bars will fit fine as is with no changes.

    I installed Heritage style on my bars 08 FLHR last spring and needed no extra hardware. Pretty simple job if you follow your service manual instructions (even for a rookie like me). You'll like the new feel and enjoy less shoulder/back irritation.

    I put the Heritage bars on my 02 RK and had no trouble with cable length.

    Beachjeep,

    Very Nice Bike...

    A question for you if I may?

    How much relief do You feel from your bars, than the Normal bars it came with?. I have 09FLHR some times I can feel the stretch and pull in between my shoulder blades , kinda burning . I know it is from the position i keep in using the stock bars that came with my bike... Like them but might have to change out to a different style like yours..

    Thanks!

    Hey Bubbie, I put the HD Reduced Reach Bars on my 07 which are similar to the Heritage Bars. At 5' 7" I felt that I was having to lean forward just a little too much for comfort, the new bars are far more comfortable for me and allow me to sit with a straight back which is a different riding position which, IMHO is far better once you adapt to how the bike handles, particularly at low speeds.

    Can you install Heritage bars on the new Limited without changing cables?

    Yes, you can install them on your Limited. There is enough length in both the clutch cable and the TBW wiring. Just make sure you get the right bar. The Heritage bar for TBW is part # 56902-08
    The bars are the same but the right side has notches in the opening for the TBW. (throttle by wire)
