Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHT - FLHTI Electra Glide Standard
You must remove the Nachele to get to the handlebar risers. They are bolted through the top triple tree. Of course, you must also remove anything that prevents you from gettng the nachelle off such as windshield, fairing, and headlight. Note: Sometimes if you turn the front end fully to one side, you and get to the large nut or bolt from the bottom side without removing he nachelle. Turn the front end to the other direction to get to the other nut or bolt.
Now, keep one thing in mind, the handlebar risers are mounted in rubber bushings. This is done to reduce handlebar vibration. Harley has used this vibration dampening system for years on their big twin bikes. Your handlebars may not be "loose" but move due to the rubber mounting. Before I went to tearing my bike apart, I'd feel of some other bikes handlebars first and compare it to what yours feel like.
You can get more firm bushings for the handlebars. Matter of fact, you can get steel bushings that eliminate the rubber mounting.
