    The base of the two vertical risers is against the wall and we need to confirm with @chandelierman the distance provided is POSSIBLY measured from there despite the arrow ending about where the bend would be.

    170mm pullback. (6.7")

    Of course nearly 300 people should be able to confirm now too!;):D

    Not just the base, but the entire surface of those rearmost tubes needs to be against a vertical wall.

    From what I can see in the pics, they don't come back far as the stock. They may even make the reach a bit worse. For me reaching forward causes me to put weight on my hands making them go numb. However these bars might make a good combo with the risers I just ordered. Maybe I can afford some bars next year if they are still being made. I love the look. Handlebars .

    If you REALLY need to "pull back" - I made some custom bars using 1" 2+2 Wide Sweeper Handlebar with ETC for 1982-2017 Harley-Davidson® models as a base. But I am a diddy 5'8".
    It requires longer cables and hoses - and some machining skills. Made mine to have internal bar weights and also a throttle that runs on a bearing.

    I have sat on Frank's @laraza R3 with the T-Bars and they were fine - a 6 footer should be more than upright with them - Certainly more comfy than Stock. The Stock bars have a VERY weird wrist angle imo. This makes them feel more stretched than they really are

    Another - albeit VERY EXPENSIVE option - HeliBars.

    I'll try and take some pics of them installed tonight w/ measurements when I get home. Any particular angles anyone would want to see?

    I bought both seys of Triumph Classic bars without knowing that chit. And I still like them better then the OEM ones. Sure my left wrist hurts after a while. But to be fair I've broken that wrist 4 times. And it hurts after a while when I'm driving my truck so I figure it's not the bars :) d.a.m.n. its hot down here at the beach !!!!

    To be honest, when I bought mine, I didn't map out the measurements either. I saw pics, read reviews from other members and the fact that they're made specifically for the rocket by a rider was enough for me.

    The Classic bars are hands down much better than the Roadster bars.
    I'm still working on the perfect fit for me and likely will make my own.
