Handlebar Options

I need to get my handlebars pulled back somehow, but don't really want to spend $300 on risers if I can avoid it. What are my options? What's going to give me the most movement? (VStar 650, 2002)

CT, I've seen risers for your 650 on eBay, j&p cycles and motosport for much less than $300. Many of them were under $100. Decent handlebars are gonna cost more than that. Hope this helps.

Is 1.5" of pullback the most I can get from risers?

I saw anywhere from 1.5 to 4.5. Just a suggestion, shop around as I saw many different styles, chrome or black, and height. Let us know what you decide on.

risers follow the angle of the forks so a straight riser will angle towards the rider.

Not top notch quality but not big bucks either. I've put their mirrors and risers on before and had no issues. Mirrors do not even vibrate which I found amazing for what I paid. Just make sure the risers you get will fit your bike.
