    Default FXR handlebar question

    I just picked up an 89 FXR, it has some drag bars that are about 9" ride with some pull back and are only about 22" wide and they gotta go.

    I would like to replace them and get a quarter fairing. What's the best setup here? I was looking at some 8" drag specialties risers but am not sure if I should get straight or pullback. And then some biltwell tracker bars. This style seems to be what I see often but can never find any specs on what people are using.

    Is there a hot setup everyone uses? I don't really want to spend $250+ on a set of bars.

    Sit on your bike and hold your hands out where you want them. Have a competent friend measure where they land to get your rise and pull back. I have no idea what the cool kids are using, but if you do it this way you will be happy with the ergos of your bike.

    Pro Taper Contours and a riser made to fit them, like something from White Iron Customs. 11", not 6".

    I ended up going with a set of drag specialties 6.5" risers and top clamp, because I get it at a discount, with a set of tcbros tracker bars because they are also nicely priced. I went camping for 5 days so I get everything tomorrow and will throw it in this weekend. Thanks for the input guys. Now I just got to find a set of stock style grips I like...
