Riser help?

Could someone school me on handle bar risers? I need more pullback. Maybe 3" or so. I have no idea how or what to get. Is this item difficult to install on the beast? Some of them will say like 4.5" or even up to 8", wth does this mean anyway? Maybe I would be better off to just get some new bars that have more pull back? Thanks for any help.....

Your going to have issues with risers with more pull back, because of the nacelle cover.

(ask me how I know)

Your probably going to want to get new bars instead.

Thanks. Do you have any recommendations for the correct size bar to fit and have more pull back? I guess we have 1" bars (at the attachment points) on these critters?

Sorry, I've been out of town.

There are a billion different bar styles. Soo.. your going to have to choose one that fits what you want.

I don't remember the pullback/rise of the stock one. Find out that, then decide how much you want to add..then start shopping.

yea, it's 1" bars. BUT..it's trivial to replace the clamps and drill out the triple tree if needed.
