Default Handlebar Question

Looking to replace the stock bars on my '02 Warrior. I've seen several comments on here about the Baron Radius bars, however I'm concerned about the comfort of these bars. Compared to the stock bars (from what I can find) the Baron bars have just over half of the pullback length than the stock bars.

Are these bars comfortable? I like the drag look and want internal wiring.

I personally wouldn't find them comfortable.

What bars do you have on your bike? I saw on your website instructions about how to install Baron Radius.

I have Milwaukee twins super radius. They're a bit longer ( more pullback ).

I'm 5'11 and stock bars are decent...wouldn't want anything less (pullback). Milwaukee Super Radius look like the ones so far.

I have Baron's Radius Bars on my bike and they're perfect for my short stubby 5'7ish frame. I bought my bike with Baron Drag Bars on it and the reach was killing my back so the swap was a must. The bar swap was a no brainer & the stock wires but & cables swapped right in. I do sometimes wish I internally ran the wiring to clean up the look on the front end a bit. Other than that I have no regrets and I'm happier than a witch in a broom factory.

before 2011




after 2012

Just fitted the radius myself, I think they are perfect all round, can't fault them!
