Hi Folks: I have an 09 Vulcan 900 LT. I recently added some Phatriser IIs, had to remove the upper triple tree to gain some cable slack. Just noticed that my handle bars are a little off center when riding straight down the road. How do I fix this? Not sure the riser install had anything to do with it. Thanks

I'd take the bars off and make sure the risers are properly aligned. I noticed mine were a tiny bit twisted when I did mine. Then do your best to center the handlebars on the risers. Mine are a touch off center for the second measurement, but I've driven 100's of KM on them without any ill effects. I may tweak the center a bit later. Make sure they're up to torque spec too - you don't want them falling down when you hit a bump or something. I torqued mine and then really leaned on them to make sure they were secure.

Your fork tubes might be mis-aligned since you loosened the top clamp. Loosen it again and twist the handlebars until everything's straight.
