Risers are offered by many manufacturers and are a simple way to customize your riding position. Choosing the correct riser from Barons, Show Chrome Accessories, Custom World, Rivco, KEWL Metal, Drag Specialties, and many others will allow you to reposition your bars up, down, closer to you, or farther away from you depending on the style of riser you choose.

Riser installation is simple and can be acomplished by any rider in their own garage with simple hand tools.

  10. Is there a special type glue i should use to aide in my remounting of the bars onto my new risers ( to stop the pivot of up/down movement)??

  11. Ty, these are new … but, won't "stop" the bars from moving. I'm afraid I'll strip the threads if I go any tighter

  12. I would like to keep the "buck horn" handlebars on my '71 Ironhead, but they are too close to my body.. Could I install a 2" riser backwards to push them away from me a bit?

  13. Disappointed. Wanted to see a hands-on video instruction on actually adjusting the bolts, Harley Dyna size bolts and needed tools, etc. If you want to know about angles and such, this is fine for that, but if you want a real helpful video on actually adjusting the risers and bars, this isn't it.

  16. That is true they are set up for the average rider. But majority of these states are 15” above the seat. My state will let you have them up to your shoulder’s max hight.

  17. i don't think the stock drag bars at 3:26 are 6 inches. in comparison to the previous handlebars with risers (that you say are 6") they look smaller with less pull back, also in comparison with the 8 inch drag bars that come right after, they look about half. i'd say they're ~4 inches or around that
