How to mount Kliphanger pullback bars to your Harley-Davidson

Riders come in all shapes and sizes. When Harley-Davidson makes a motorcycle, it has to fit the greatest amount of people in the most common size. Then, aftermarket companies can come in and let the rider fine-tune the bike to fit their exact specifications. There’s nothing like those minute details that make the ride perfect for a specific person. The KlipHanger Pullback Bars from Klock Werks allow the rider to adjust the bars after being installed either closer, wider, higher, or lower easily with just four bolts. We enlisted our good friends at Wheel Works to show you how they go on.
