    Greetings

    I know this will stir up discussion, but what is the correct angle for the hand controls to be sitting at? I think mine are facing too far up (levers pointed down) compared to the controls on my WideGlide.

    Thanks

    The best angle is the one that works for you.

    Be careful not to pinch the wiring coming out of the bars at controls or pull connections off the pcb.
