Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Honda VTX 1300 that I can't get the handlebars to tighten. The risers are completely flat when pulled tight and the bars still twist. Is there a way to fix the problem?

The top pieces of the risers can be filed or sanded down to create a gap between the top & bottom piece to increase the clamping pressure, my guess is you have aftermarket handlebars which are smaller in diameter than the stock ones.

Handlebar wobbles when grips are released, it does not go straight, and there's a rattle whem going through bumps, at all speeds


You probably need to add air pressure to your front tire and the steering head bearings need to be tightened.

Can I install 4" kickback riser under the handlebar


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!

Good luck!
Hope this Helps!

HANDLEBAR CHANGE/1999 ROYALSTAR


hi dennis. firstly there ain't no extra inside the headlight. it's very tight in there. remove the light using small phillips screws on either side. (dang what a mess)
you can slip off your old handlebar controls no problem, loosen them up before removing the riser clamps, then you can easily slip them off as you can move the bars to do so. slip controls on new bars and try mounting, if wires are too tight you will have to find them in the headlight and extend them.
