Default Riser Question

After reading and searching here I believe that if I install the following risers on my '09, C50, some rerouting of the cables may be all that's needed (if at all, as I plan on installing them backwards to provide a longer reach).

Baron Custom Accessories Kickback Risers - Various Models

Experienced opinions appreciated.

I have them. No need to move or relocate any cables, wires, hoses, etc.

Thanks for the replies. My only concern was the cable lengths on my '09.

I'm going to order those.

From what I can see the 2 people who responded have pre 2007 bikes. I just added 1.5 inch Jim's spacers to my 2007 C50 Stock risers and had to reroute the throttle cable. I would double check. The throttle cables were shortened for 2007 I also heard that people had to reroute for the 08 models. The part number for the cables change again for the 09 model year. Perhaps someone with an 09 could chime in.

The throttle cables were shortened in 2007 and I don`t think they were made longer in years afterwards. Maybe someone else could chime in.
I just added 2" spacers to my 2012 C50T with no issues at all, except now I can feel the nose of the passenger seat in my back.

Hey Gambit, please post a picture of the reverse-mounted pullbacks after you do it. My 6'6" son did similar to his '04 Dyna Wide Glide and it not only made all the difference for his crazy-long arms, it actually DOESN'T look goofy.

No problem. Will do.

Got them installed today.

I don't think that there is any real difference in reach. It's just that I'm now able to tilt the bars down to where I want them without bumping the tank.

No problems with cables. Really like 'em this way so far.

Reinstalled the rubber washers (bottom and top) and metal washers (top only). Used aluminum tape to get a snug fit on the new bolts, in the tree.
