Batwing Reach Handlebar

Part Number 55800589

The Batwing Reach® Handlebar is shaped to provide all-day riding comfort for smaller stature riders. The Reach handlebar was ergonomically designed to provide the ideal combination of shoulder position, elbow bend and wrist angle.

Batwing Reach Handlebar is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reach Handlebar Handlebar does help reduce the reach. The grips are at a very comfortable angle and improve the low speed handling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reach handlebars I am a taller rider but have damage to both shoulders and the stock bars were too far forward for long distance riding. On a previous Ultra Limited I added the "Tallboy" bars but they did not fit my needs. The "Reach" bars come in closer to me and allow my arms and shoulders to ride in a more relaxed position. Although advertised for a "shorter driver" they fit me perfectly. Note: while listed as "not compatible" with heated grips, my installation includes heated grips and they worked fine after the installer rerouted the fixed cables a little.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Batwing Reach Handlebar Installation was easy. I did find that the clutch cable was binding, not allowing a full turn right to stop. I attempted re-routing the cable to the outside of the engine guard. Doing this I then found the cable to be too short and unable take up slack (verified by Williams HD Service Dept. Lebanon NJ). I needed a longer clutch cable. The enclosed instructions or Online description made no mention of this. I would not have attempted the install if I had known this. Overall the product makes my ride more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement in comfort. At 5'5" they come back just far enough for a good riding position. Definitely better slow moving control. Parking, tight turns. Didn't have to buy any additional cables or mirrors. Also worked with standard black heated grips. Wires run with the rest of control wires on outside not internal as directions described.

Are there any detail specification on the bar?

I'm looking at this bar and perhaps one other. Without buying both, I am looking for an apples to apples comparison between the two. The specifications provided for the Reach bar are a little on the skimpy side to do that and wondering if there might be any detailed drawings of the bar with its angles and distance parameters to compare against? Thanks.

Handlebar fit for '08 FLHX

Will these bars also fit an '08 Street Glide? I'm aware of the amount of labor/installation time. Just want to verify the fit before I purchase. Thanks, Chris
Asked by: ChrisS
Hi ChrisS, No, the Batwing Reach Handlebar will not fit an 2008 FLHX. Only 2009-later. Thanks!

Do I need other parts to fit 2014 H-D Tri Glide ?

Amount of pull back over stock

I have a 2012 HD Electra Glide with stock handle bars. I would like the bars to be a little closer. Do these really have more pull back than stock enough to make a difference? Thanks
