SOURCE: 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!

How do i raise the handlebars on the gt 3.0


Most bicycles have adjustable handlebar risers. Just loosen the center riser bolt 4 or 5 turns (you may have to use a mallet or hammer to break loose the draw nut from the neck) then raise it up "no higher than the max line indicator". If you still need it higher search for an extended riser or more suitable handlebars.

My versys fell over in a parking lot and now my handlebar is not square with the front tire. How can I make this adjustment?


Sounds like you bent the bars ? If they are not bent loosen the risers square em up and tighten risers.

My handlebars move up and down on my 2000 Road King. The mechanic says I need to replace the "bushings" and it is a big, 2 hours labor, to replace them. Can it be done by me with my limited motorcycle...


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.

Good Luck

How to tighting my handalebars on my flht i leaned on them to get off my bike and they moved down and i pulld them back up but now they move up and down thankyou if you can help me by telling me how to get...


The earlier Electra Glides had a "riser cover" located on top of the headlight nachele right in the center. It had two screws holding it on. Remove the screws and you had access to the handlebar risers or clamps. The later models may not have this cover and you may have to remove the headlight nacele to get to the risers.

Good luck

How do you adjust the handle bars?


On the older FL models, there was chrome cover that covers the handlebar risers. It was held on by two bolts, one on each side of the cover right in the middle of the handlebars. Remove the cover and you can get to the riser. Loosen the top bolts of the riser and adjust the bars. Unless they've changed something, this should work.

Good Luck

How to tighten handlebars on a harley davidson 1997 road king?


If it is the clamp that is loose, remove the riser cover and tighen the 4 allem head screws. If it is the riser base that is loose, turn your bars to the left, look under the triple tree and you will see a large bolt head, one one each side, use a socket and tighten, swing the bars to the right, and repeat on the other side.
Happy riding!

How to get acsess to my handlebars to tighten


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.

Go to this site and check out page 990
http://www.vtwinmfg.com/Catalog1/VTwinCatalogIndex1.htm It is the V-Twin manufacturing catalog and shows the handlebar riser bushings. Good Luck
