Construction: 1-inch O.D. x 0.120" wall seamless 4130 chromoly tubing. All bends are created with internal mandrels on a CNC bender to reduce flat spots in the radiuses, and all welded joints are precision mitered and TIG welded. For exact measurements, please click the Specifications icon in the photo album. Available in two styles: Smooth for aftermarket hand controls or custom applications, and Dimpled for stock Harley-Davidson switches and levers.
Fitment: Biltwell Moto Bars are nearly identical to the height of most stock handlebars, and only slightly wider. For this reason, however, care should be exercised to determine if the stock cables and wires on your motorcycle are long enough to make retro fitment easy. Also, because they are wider Moto bars might hit your gas tank. Please consider turning angle and tank size/mounting before ordering.
Black ED: The black finish on Biltwell handlebars and risers is called Black Electrostatic Discharge or BED, and is applied the same way chrome plate is applied to raw materials. Like chrome plating, powdercoating and standard paint finishes, BED requires periodic care to maintain its luster. Soapy water and a soft cloth will remove surface dirt from BED, and common automotive waxes and polishes work great to protect the finish.
A Few Words on Knurling: We don�t knurl our bars because doing so reduces the surface area where the handlebar makes contact with the risers, thereby compromising clamping power. Stock and aftermarket steel risers commonly found on cruisers and custom big twins have a material density 4 times greater than aluminum. This density doesn't let knurling bite into the riser material, which in turn compromises clamping strength.
Throttle-by-wire (TBW) handlebars for late model Harley-Davidsons features 4130 chromoly construction, TIG welded joints where applicable and Biltwell's state-of-the-art execution on TBW module integration.
Please Note: check what bar type you will need (Slotted or Non-Dimpled)
