    A friend was just over and was wondering if it's possible to put Heritage bars on his Fatboy. He said his bars made him lean forward and his back got sore.
    I told him I'd go online and find out if the cables and wiring harness is long enough to just make the switch. I'm sure I'll get the answer here from the experts.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hey Geezer. Yeah those Heritage bars should go on a Fatboy no problem. The brake line at the master cylinder will probably have to be tweaked a little to get it to go with the new contour of the bars. I am not positive but I thought the Fatboy and Heritage had the same bars? After checking this chart they are very close depending on the year of Fatboy.

    Thanks for the info Bodeen. That's a handy chart to have so I printed it to keep a hard copy.
