Thumbs up New risers on my XL883 today.

Picked up a set of 4" pullback risers from ebay for $26.85 brand new.
Lots more there! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chrom...QQcmdZViewItem
There was just enough wire and brake line lenght and plenty of cable length too.
Had to buy shorter allen heads for the handlebar clamp but that was it.
Much better now!

Nice clean install. Subtle, but that's how I like to do mods.

The bike's color looks like it's a perfect match with your Stang's.

Nicely done, Dean....

I wouldn't have figured that a big guy like you would need pull-backs, but ya gotta have what fits you best.

Cool beans Dean. Speedo looks a little
funky sticking up like that though.

Well I needed them up even more than pulled back but I have limited reach with my left arm due to a fused radial head in my elbow.
I broke my damn funnybone and let me tell ya it wasn't very f funny.
It's been over 15 years ago now and the sumbitch has given me pain every single day since.
I guess I'm get'n old too cause my back needs to be straight when I ride and I was leaning foward a bit with the stock bars and risers.
Not sure yet if I'll change the bars,I like drag bars for looks but I could see that giving me trouble.
Sux get'n old

Or you could do Xena's speedo relocation mod! It's most excellent.
