I don't understand how a riser is going to work unless it will work with the 1 inch bars. Is that what you are saying?Boss Man said:I spoke to Levi, the parts guy at the factory a few days ago. He said the risers should be available end of July....beginning of August. I've been waiting for them to be available since this years Daytona Bike Week, when Rad told me about them. Besides bringing the bars a little closer to the rider, they should also raise the bars a bit allowing the turn stop bolts to be adjusted so the turning radius will be better. I have mine adjusted so at full left and right lock, the bars just miss the instrument dash. It'll be nice to make a little tighter U-turn! I'm really looking forward to trying out these new risers! Something tells me they're going to be a BIG seller!
Thanks--I have found a source but tomorrow I will see if anyone has them in stock. JP Cycles has them on backorder and there are a few others that show them as well. If it pans out I will post the information.Bill Taylor said:Busa,
Boss Man and I were responding to Dani's question about the pull-back risers that the factory has come up with. Many of the trike riders (and bike riders I suppose) are leaning too far forward to reach the stock bars. The ideal solution to that problem is to get risers that fit 1 1/4" bars and are taller and pull-back more than the stock. Unfortunately, NOBODY makes these for a 1 1/4" bar...only the 1" bar. That is what Rad at the Factory has produced.
Your ape-hanger question is a different issue. Click on the Ebay site that I listed above and email that guy to see where he got his bars. They look like the stock risers (for 1 1/2" bar diameter) with ape-hangers.
Hope that helps.
