Best risers for 2010 Classic LT without cable swap

Can anybody recommend risers (good price, but not cheaply made) for a 2010 Classic LT that won't require cable swap/drilling etc that also will bring handlebars back closer to me.

I'm on my 2nd set of aftermarket risers, the Phat II risers from Scootworks and I'm very happy with them. The first set didn't give me enough pullback. The Phat II risers give max pullback without needing new cables. You may or may not have to reroute some of the cables, but you shouldn't need to buy longer ones.

Thanks! I was also looking at a set on Chucksterscustoms but they look like they are not as well made.

Did you install engine guards? If so, what kind?

I have used these for a while good 4" rise and 1 1/2" pull back. Cables must be rerouted behind the triple tree but not swapped.
