Not for use with stock equipment.
I installed these handlebars on a 2015 Forty Eight in just a few hours and that includes the time it took to do some welding on them.
These handlebars are narrow, and I mean NARROW. They would not even come close to working with the stock hand controls. I'm planning on swapping the stock hand controls for some aftermarket ones but didn't have the funds to do everything since hand controls aren't cheap. I'm sure everything would workout and fit fine if you swapped it all out at once since most after market controls aren't as bulky as the factory ones.
I installed the handlebars using a spacer which raised the bars up 1/4" so that it wouldn't make contact with the fork tubes. Then installed the stock hand controls as close as I could get them to the triple clamp without making contact with it. When I checked the fitment of the grips I saw that only about 1.25" (if that) of the bar went into the grips.
I don't know about you but I don't see that as safe. So I took it all apart, welded a slug into the bars, then welded on 2.5" extensions to each side. A "butt weld" is not strong enough alone, and if you do this, you MUST use a slug.
After welding on the extensions I reinstalled everything and took her for a ride. I went bombing around the streets of downtown for a while and I love the way this bike rides now. I was able to take all my favorite corners a little faster and felt more in control.
Because these took some welding and grinding to work with factory controls, I can't recommend these to other buyers unless they're willing to modify brand new equipment.

Amazing bars, sturdy AF, can't go wrong.
However, super narrow, check fitment, careful of front hyrdaulic lines, didn't fit perfectly without some modification to tank placement. Narrower than you would think, but amazing quality. I can't give it a 4/5 just because they weren't exactly a breeze to install. just too swag

A shopper asked:I just purchased these bars for my 2014 iron 883. I had some clearance issues with the hand controls now hitting the tank. What size risers are needed to eliminate this issue? Right now I am using the stock risers.Aug 4, 2014
