I ordered a set of 4.5" risers for my bike (VStar1100 Classic) from China and they arrived yesterday. I know, I know - Chinese junk, but I'm not sure if I'll like them or not so I figured it would be better to toss out $40 before spending $150.
Anyway, they actually look quite nice so I was anxious to try them out. I took my handlebars off, then one of the risers. This is where I stopped. The stock ones have a stud with a thicker shank that works as a bushing where it goes through the triple tree. The ones I got have no stud, just a threaded hole. My question is, does this stud come out of the stock riser or will have to use something else? If so, will a bolt work or do I need to find something to use as a bushing? First time doing this so any advice would be welcome.
