Default New Z bars on my wideglide

Hey,
I just had 4 inch risers and z handlebars put on my 2011 wide glide. I think it came out looking pretty good. What do you all think?

Needs shorter risers IMHO. I think I may have been one of the first people to start running those bars. Still have them in the shed, all internally wired with switches and all. The Softy was in Hot Bike when she sported those bars. I don't like them any more as they feel much to wide to me. I don't like how far the grips hang off the ned of the bars when you use stock controls.

I dont think they are as wide as the stock drag bars. I have thought about smaller risers. Other than that i like them.

Don't get me wrong, I am just biased toward VERY narrow bars.

When I put mine on I didn't liek the height of the risers so I had Ron at Bitchin Baggers chock them up in the lathe and turn them down to 2-1/2" and rethread them. I liked how they fit the top tree after that.

Hey would you have any pics of that bike with the shorter risers and z bars? I would like to see how the bars look closer to the trees.
