Handlebar Risers

I have a 2007 V-Star 1100 and have been thinking about getting risers for my handlebars. I found some on eBay and am looking for some input on this. My lower back bothers me when I ride for an hour or more so thought this may take care of the problem.

It might, be careful about going to big with them as you might have to replace cables/lines due to restricted movement.

In my experience, you can keep the stock cables simply by re-routing them.

Risers

I see Yamaha has risers and handlebars. Handlebars might be an option.

I added the PRO One riser with the tach with out changing my cables. I did have to reroute a couple of them.

Almost wish I had done that. Got my Pro-One tach on ebay, nobody bid on it just the tach and the upper plate in the kit for $50. It's hard to see though without the pullback risers.

Doug, do you have a picture that you could post or email me of this on your bike? I think this is the route that I am going since I did just jet my carbs and would like to set the idle between 950 - 1050 RPM's.
