I have an '05 1300C and I want to put new bars on it. The problem I have with that is not being sure what kind it is that will fit how I want. Second is not knowing what kind of adapters to use to be able to run regular bars. Especially with how tall of a riser to get with what height of a bar to pair with. I want my hands to come back to me some and be a bit more angled to the arms natural position (i.e. not so flat and out straight, more angled).

CGCasey greetings,
I bought a set of these for my 04 1300S back in (I think) 05, to bring my stock handelbars back to a more comfortable position. I bought a set of 4" rister.

They attach right to your stock handlebars & triple tree and your cables should be fine even with full left/right turning (at least mine were). Nice solid metal with heavy chrome and best of all they did the trick for me for over 13 years of use.

The 1300C has welded risers and bars. Not adjustable. The entire assembly has to be replaced. New risers and new bars.

Hello CGCasey, welcome to the VTXOA.
I see that you have the 1300C bar specs. One line up or down and the 1300 R/S specs should be shown.
The 1300R/S has 6" more pullback than the C bars.
1300R/S cables are 2 or 3" longer than the C cables.
Some may have routed the cables behind the bars instead of around the front.

Riser extensions can be used on the C bars, about 2.5" height. Socket Riser Mod or similar and some have an offset.
