Has anyone had any success in finding pullback risers to fit the stock 1-1/4 inch bars on the Boss Hoss? I'd like to get the bars a little closer to me, but I don't feel like changing bars and having to re-wire everything. Thanks. :capwin: ......Don B

Pullback risers

Don,
I spoke to Rad about this two weeks ago. He has built the risers that you, and I, are looking for. He is not yet ready to release them for sale because they now have to develop an entire "kit" including new throttle cables and other small things that will need to be changed to install pullback risers. Pricing information was not yet available.

You may want to check with your closest dealer in a few weeks to get an update.

For anyone interested, The new pullback risers are now available from the factory, and I would think, through your dealer also.
I received mine from the factory a few days ago and have installed them. Kit includes Chrome risers and chrome engraved handlebar clamp, riser and handlebar clamp bolts, 6" longer throttle cable and brake line.
Price was $260.
I think the riding position, for me at least, is more comfortable, and because the handlebar is now higher and clears the instrument panel, I was able to adjust the fork stops to allow a better turning radius.
Gas tank removal might be a problem, but I won't swear to that as I haven't tried removing the gas tank yet. If it is a problem I think loosening the handlebar clamp and rotating the bars up should suffice.
We'll see eventually. But other than that, I'm happy with the conversion.
Here's a few pics.

Don, Any chance you're going to be in Sturgis? I'd love to sit on your bike and try out those new risers. I think I need to put a set on my wife's trike for sure, but not so sure on my 2 wheeler. We're leaving for the rally on Wednesday, will be there on Thursday. Steve

Steve,
Nope, not this year. I'll be in Hawaii for 2 weeks. Hey...somebody's got to do it!
When your at Sturgis, go to the factory trailer. One of the demo bikes has them installed. Blue and White 350 I think. I took a ride on it at Marcus Dairy during the "Power Tour" the factory is doing. I really liked the feel of the pullbacks when I rode it, so I got a set soon as I could.
Have a Ball! :capwin:

Steve,

:twisted: I don't think so. Bacardi has been scientifically proven to have the highest "pencil lead" content of all alcoholic beverages. This study was conducted over a period of 6 years utilizing a senior male and considerably younger female and closely monitored by the old mans notches on the headboard :p 8)

Of course, this study is ongoing and it's results continue to amaze the scientific community.
