I bought the riser spacer off eBay...for $19.00 you can't go wrong. They raise your bars 2" and back "because of the angle of the tree" 3/4 -1" ... no cable mods needed on my 03 Volusia.

I went with the barrons 4" risers. They have about 2" pullback and they are great for me. You will have some to do some "filling" as the supplied bolts are a little thinner than the original bolts. There are some threads as how to do it. I also didn't have to do anything with the cables on my 05 C-50.

Sorry, don't mean to interrupt this thread but how did you find your spacers on ebay. I just tried to put in "riser spacer" in the ebay search and came back with nothing useful.

I think the word was FILLING as in filling spaces- The bolts are thinner sometimes requiring a thin shim to take up the slop.

It ain't getting what you want..It's wanting what u got!

Yes the bolts are a smaller head than the factory riser pocket and when you try to tighten the lock nut the bolt turns. There is no room for a socket or wrench but you can tighten with an extra hand by wedging a flat screwdriver against the head of the bolt to hold it while tightening the nut. Took maybe 15 minutes and the job was done...
