Question handlebar risers for 2013 Nomad

Looking to install some risers on my 2013 Nomad for a little more height and pullback to help out with my neck and shoulder problems. Don't want to go to apes and get into changing the lines and cables again. Just want a little more comfort. Has anyone done this and if so what brands did you use and what height and did you have to change any cables. I did check the search engine but could not find any ideas. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.

I was just referred to the following guy by a member here for a set of risers and have a set on the way. Nice guy and extremely helpful with the suggestions and ordering process.

I'm in a different category in that I'm trying to get just a bit more clearance from the bars to the windshield so that I can rotate the bar a bit more forward to change the angle that my wrist are in. I was on the fence about changing the bars entirely but thought I would go this route first to see how this works for me. I'm only going 2" or less with no pull back, although it's gonna have a bit of pull back just by the angle that the riser sitting on the triple tree, but shouldn't be too much I hope. Hopefully this will accomplish what I am looking for and if not, then I'll try something else.

Good luck,

Scott

Even though I do not have a Nomad I have risers on all my other scoots. Having the bars back a little is nice and the wife sure like them on her scoot.

But if you want the ultimate risers apparently this guy in Missouri found them... Albeit he is just a crash looking for a place to happen.....

hey Bubba: I am positive the ultimate risers are not me. I have been in touch with Joe at Chucksters and he has something that could fit the bill. However I am still on the fence and still looking for more information on 12 inch apes before I make up my mind. I have had 12 inch apes and they were very comfortable. I have never had risers so have nothing to compare them to.

I have had 12 inch rising bars a couple times, I have them on both the wife's scoots, but not as Apes.... but coming back low as pull backs... Actually they are bars for a Yamaha Venture, and I have been thinking about one for my Voyager. I can live with a one inch bar instead of the 1 1/4 handlebar on it. All the controls are 1 inch. I have a bunch of Yamaha risers that will work fine....

Was looking for the same thing to off set the taller and farther back seating position of my new mustang seat. I got the custom SWR-21 spacers for Vulcan 1700 from Scootworks and it fit the bill quit nicely!

thanks for all the replies. more information is always helpfull to help make the right decision for me. So if I understand correctly bubba that the stock handlebars are 1 inch at the risers and 1 inch on the ends to accept the controls. Does that mean the whole stock bar is 1 inch or just at the risers and ends of the bar. Thanks
