How to replace the handlebar bushings on my 2003 flstci
Posted by Anonymous on
It's not too hard. Take out the old ones, put new ones in, I suggest some plastic tie wraps to hold the bars near the approximate spot while you're fiddling. You don't need to remove cables or anything, if that's what you're thinking.

sounds to me like the low beam filament in the headlight bulb is blown test for voltage on the yellow wire at the headlight with it set to low beam if you have voltage here you more then likely have a blown low beam filament

Just make sure the cables are not binding or too short.
Replacing the risers are pretty straight forward.
Remove the four hold down bolts then remove the stock risers. Towel will help here to prevent handle bars from scratching the tank. Helps to have the front wheel straight before starting this process. Install the new risers using the hardware supplied. Be sure to check clutch and throttle for binding BEFORE riding.
If they bind and prevent easy operation you may have to purchase extension cables. Be sure to torque the 4 bolts that hold down the handle bars properly. After a few trips check and tighten again to the proper torque settings. Installed the Baron kick back risers on my 1100 and it took a few trips to get use too.
After that wouldn't take anything for them! Sitting higher and not all slumped over. Nice looking too!
Hope this Helps!

Well, I can't answer your question because I don't know the level of mechanical ability you have. But, there is nothing that is super exotic about replacing the bushings on the risers. It depends on the type of bushings that are in the upper triple tree. Some bushings simply push out and others are "pressed" in. By "pressed" in, I mean you can drive them in with a hammer if you use the proper precautions to keep from damaging them and you get back in the proper position.
Basically, all that has to be done is to remove everything that is in the way of accessing the bushings. You need to remove any windshield, fairing, nachelle, headlight, handlebar riser cover, and remove the nuts or bolts from the risers. Replace the bushings with either replacement bushings like they came from the factory or urethane bushings to give a more firm feeling to the handlebars.
