This article is only for 2017 and newer Road King Specials. We get a lot of customers asking which handlebar they need to use for their Road King Special. The stock handlebar is 1-1/4" but steps down to 1" for the controls. The riser is also 1-1/4". In this case, many people think you can use the Signature bar, but we do not recommend this because the Signature bar was designed to take the Road Glide weighted control clamps on the top. So, in this case, there would be holes that would show on your bar. The only fix for this is to but the Road Glide weighted control clamps which run over $100.
Our solution to this is to use our Malo or Maddogger handlebar so you do not need to change the control clamps. The only issue with this is our bar steps down to 1" but all you have to do is purchase our 1-1/4" adapter for $60 and problem solved. Keep in mind we personally use this adapter on our own bikes and it is very safe. We have listed the items below you need.
