This thread is intended solely for posting information and asking questions about accessories related to the Vulcan 1700 Vaquero. Try keeping the random BSing to a bare minimum if any at all. Thank you
If you have anything to add to this list, PM me and I'll add it to this post.
There is already a sticky for 1700 accessories at the top of the forum. You trying to set the Vaquero apart from the rest of the 1700s? The Nomad, Voyager, and Vaquero are basically the same bikes with different dressings.
I think the idea is that the Vaquero owners are often looking for a different 'style' of accessory. It is already difficult enough to find parts we are interested in. Then made even worse when we have to search for those nuggets among all the thousands of comments on the Vaquero thread, or just lost on the 1700 Accessories sticky. JMHO
I was wondering, How I may bring the stock handlebars back about an inch? With my new Corbin seat and back rest, the reach is extending my arms out almost to their limit when I am fully reclined. Sitting upright is OK. I really didn't want to roll them back in the clamp, that would lower them and I don't want to do that.

Unfortunately, the only option right now that I've heard to fit the Vaquero are the junk risers I bought from Scootworks. They're 2" risers, but they're extremely poor quality and I do not recommend them to anyone.
A buddy of mine ordered Chucksters risers for his Suzuki C50, and I didn't realize it from his website, but I guess they're just spacers that go underneath the stock risers to lift them up a little bit. I'd be willing to bet this could work so long as you don't go too high for the bolts.
Anyone know how wide the handle bars are on the Vaquero? I am at work and looking to buy a "bar harness" for towing purposes. Need width straight accross from end of bar to end of bar. Thanks for the help!
I highly don't recommend that! Your risers aren't meant to support the pull of straps and the weight of the bike. I've seen many a bikes fall over on the trailer because bars rolled in the risers.
But if you must, it's 33.5" from handlebar to handlebar
Great point, I never thought of that. I towed one time before and it was not easy getting to the triple tree without rubbing the fairing. Maybe I will get some of the fleece covers for the straps for extra protection. Thanks for your quick response and input!
