I just searched for 'Custom riser' (in the Forum search at the top of the page) in thread titles. There were dozens more hits, but these seemed the most relevant.

hey ,did you try to mount top clamp to other risers ? I'm looking at the older style stock straight risers off a pre 2003.

The spacing between the clamp bolts are wider than they would be with normal risers

Just make sure the measurements across the top and down on each side are what you need. if they are off a 1/4" they aren't going to work. If I were to use my custom clamp on normal risers, they (risers) would need to be moved further apart about 1/4"-3/8".

The 4 bolt mounting on the speedo clamp is a one off, it will not match up to stock risers.

I did this mod a few years ago. The bar clamp is from Speed Merchant. sorry the photo is an old one. The total rise is about 1.25 inches also has a Biltwel Bar. The headlight brackets were updated later on with alum cast ones.
