    Among all the bike parts on Harley-Davidson, the handlebar is what the rider interacts most with. Without the rider realizing it, it plays a crucial part in the riding experience. Although default handles can do the work, however, those are not catered to your personal need. That is why you will be better off with a handlebar of your choosing.

    Getting a new handlebar bar depends a lot on personal preferences. I tried focusing only on basic things so that you don’t get restricted by specifications. Throughout the post, you will not only get an idea about which ones are the best but also, I’ll explain in detail why they made their place on the list. 

    Let’s take a look at the best handlebars for street glide. Hopefully, you won’t have to look elsewhere once you have gone through the post.

    What Street Glide Handlebars Kit Should You Choose? 

    First of all, you should choose the right height. It should complement your sitting posture. And be careful not to get the height of the hands higher than heart level. Otherwise, you will face heavy discomfort during the long rides. Also, choose the pullback length depending on the seat position. Long pull-back handles are best suited in models their seat is farther back. 

    Make sure you can sit comfortably upright position because leaning forward or backward for a long time is likely to cause back pain. Then there is the question would you have to extend the cable. As it depends on the handle if you will have to re-do the wires. 

    How I Picked The Products

    Finding out the best handlebar was not easy. There are a lot of options in Amazon starting from cheap Chinese knock-offs to dependable expensive ones. Then they also have different designs, shapes, materials, etc. As everyone has different tastes so to each one, the definition of best will differ. That is why I judged these kits with basic features height, material, width, etc. Because besides the personal preference these qualities make sure you have the best experience. 

    On top of that, I categorized all from the best one to the best budget and everything in between. The spectrum of these categories is quite diverse. Hopefully, you will find your best match on the list. 

    Best Handlebars For Street Glide Review

    Let’s now dive in and take a deep look at the handlebars and learn what makes them so great. I will start with a comparison table. 

    FMB 14″ Mercenary Bars Handlebars – Best Overall 

    Height: 14 inches

    Pull Back: 7 inches

    Weld Type: 100% TIG weld

    Powder Coat: Yes

    These custom 14″ Mercenary bars come in two variants, they are Satin Black and Glossy. Both Satin Black and Glossy variant looks elegant in all weather. It will surely attract many eyes wherever you go.

    Great Design

    Your hands will rest in comfortable positions all the time. It also allows rotation with very little hand displacement. So, it will be easier to take tight corners. This is a design that complements the rider on long rides. 

    Best Welding

    This handle was hand-made with 100% TIG weld. TIG welding is renowned for its ability to produce strong welds. The welding ensures the joints can face all kinds of abuse you can throw at them. It is one of the strongest 14-inch handlebars for street glide.

    Powder Coated

    The extra layer of powder coat makes sure the rust, corrosion stays away. It also slows down color fading. Also, this coat allows the makers to implement different types of finishes.  

    Pros

    • Very comfortable design
    • The powder-coated finish is flawless
    • Extremely durable and strong build-quality
    • Easy to install 
    • Great customer service

    LA CHOPPERS LA-7361-12B Black 11/4″ – Runner-up 

    Height: 8/10/12/14/16 inches

    Pull Back: 6 inches

    Finish: Gloss

    Type: Knurled

    This one is designed with an emphasis on comfort. The only reason I put this kit in the second place is that it does not come with TIG Weld like the top pick. Otherwise, the places would have switched.  

    Internal Wiring

    There are some holes drilled on this handlebar. It is done to accommodate the wires inside it. That way it keeps the wires safe and improves the look. The system is also efficient as you won’t have to deal with hanging wires anymore. 

    Compatible

    Whether you have cable or electronic throttle it won’t matter. This handlebar can work with both types on the throttle. The parallel wrist angles would let you take turns easily and allow stress-free riding.

    Designed for Batwing Fairing

    The flowing design bends on as it rises from the base. This was done on purpose as it is designed specifically for Batwing fairings. Don’t worry, You can use it without any fairing too. This compatibility and features together make it one of the best 12-inch handlebars for street glide.

    Pros

    • Comes with a gloss black powder coat
    • Has drills for internal wiring
    • Works with both cable and electronic throttle
    • Improves bike handling 
    • Can be installed with basic tools

    • Wiring cables inside need a little bit of technical expertise

    How To Choose The Best Handlebars For Street Glide (The Buying Guide)

    Rise/Height

    The height is measured down from the base to the handle grips in a straight line. The handlebars for Harley come in different shapes and sizes. But, don’t get fooled and pick something out of your comfort zone. 

    The basic rule is that your hands should be below your heart level. If your resting posture has hands above the heart level, during a long ride your hand will get a lower dose of oxygen from the blood and feel numb. And, this is a recipe for disaster. 

    So, whichever height you pick make sure your hands don’t exceed the heart level. For shorter riders I would suggest 10-inch handlebars for street glide, even 8 or 12 inches would be a good fit too. 

    Width

    The rule of thumb is that your hands should not be much wider when resting on grips than the distance between your shoulder. This particular posture makes sure the muscles on the hand don’t get tired quickly.  

    The grip position and shoulder do not have to be an exact match. But the gap should not be so much that you have to stretch your arms wide. If you like wider grips just make sure the arms don’t get tired.

    Pull Back

    The pullback is how long the grip extends toward the rider. The measurement starts from the base to much the grip goes toward the rider. This image from hdforums.com explains how to measure the pullback. Usually, sports bikes have very short pullbacks while cruising bikes like Harley Davidson have much larger pullbacks. 

    The pullback should be long enough so that you can seat straight up. If you have to lean forward or backward, then you might have back pain during long rides. 

    Thickness / Diameter

    How the handle behaves during adverse situations depends on its thickness or diameter. The thicker construct it has, the heavier blow it can withstand. A strong handle is a necessity if you like to ride rough. It will offer full support when you use the hand brake. In case you are into stunts, then you will definitely need a strong handle that can withstand all the abuse.

    Shape

    Many might think that shape of the handlebar depends on the test of the user. But shape impacts the overall experience and should be picked carefully. For example, the shape of the handlebar impacts attaching a fairing or speaker. So, besides the comfort also think about how you want to attach kits to your bike in the future and pick accordingly.

    Material

    How long the handlebar will last depends a lot on the build material. It should be rust and corrosion-resistant. Make sure it is weather-resistant if you like to ride in all kinds of weather. Stainless steel and its other variants are very good options in that regard. Equipment made with the right materials will accompany you for a long time. 

    Wiring Space

    Last but not least, ensure it can fit the wiring of your bike. If the wires and handle don’t match, the wire might cut short or the extra length will be hanging along the bar. In both cases, you will need to do some extra work to patch things up. You will be relieved of this duty if the design matches the current wiring of your bike.

    Bottom Line

    The stock handlebars for street glide works, but the customs ones are better. Now that you know all about the non-stock handlebar feel free to choose any from the list. In my opinion, 14″ MERCENARY BARS HANDLEBARS is the one to look out for. But, it is you who decides which one is the best. All of the kits are proven and tested in real work. These are the best handlebars for street glide because of their durability and reliability.
