    Default 2020+ RT OEM handlebars?

    So, I see many 2020+ RT owners switching to OEM F3 bars for added height/closeness. Are the OEM RT bars basically the F3 long reach bars, or are they a happy medium between long reach/stock F3 bars?

    I put the F3 "Long Reach" bars on my 2020 RT Limited. For me, they work perfectly.

    Look at Heli bars if you need yours to be adjustable. I installed them on my 2020RT last year and absolutely love them. https://www.helibars.com/?gclid=Cj0K...YaAoxlEALw_wcB

    I can’t answer your question the OEM bars on the RT but I can tell you the stock oem bars on my 2020 RTL were killing me. I installed the F3short reach bars and they are perfect for me. BUT they are really back and might not be for all.

    I initially installed the F3 Short Reach bars on my 2020 RTL. Big mistake. The were way too far back for me. I then put on the OEM F3 bars. Still didn't work. I then put on the F3 Long Reach bars and they were just right. It's all trial and error.
