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 !

Thanks for the responses, ended up keeping the riser to see how I like it I can always remove it later but I like it there so far. Ended up switching out the brake line extended the wiring for the controls, then later the clutch and throttle cables but only because they were in rough shape.

I think they give it a 70's look. You'll have to post a pic.

Looks great and it puts the mirrors right where you want them. Lotta guys say they don't care for that riser but I think they have a definite COOL factor.

Not rubber mount and on a springer, but they work the same with any front end. Straight risers with sweeper bars.
