Default Bars on C Riser?

I want bars that are a bit higher but also to keep the riser on the 04-06 riser that comes on the 'C' models.

I like the chumps/ mini apes but not sure about the look of them on that riser.

Anyone got pics of higher bars on the C riser?

Those look nice. Thanks!

Did you have to swap all of the cables out ?

I think higher bars on the Custom riser look a bit odd. Bite the bullet and swap out the riser:





I didn't have to swap the riser; my Custom came like that from the factory.

I didn't have to swap anything but I rerouted the wires under the tank and bent the soft brakeline straight. After a week of riding, I decided that it didn't look clean enough so I ordered a 4" wire extension kit (Novella) from Dennis Kirk and a 4" longer single Brakeline from them also. The throttle cables are routed behind the triple tree and the clutch cable was plenty long enough. P.S. I like that CUSTOM 5" riser, it has a definite COOL factor !
