Hello All,

Traded my 2007 Honda VTX 1300 Retro for a 2007 Yamaha Stratoliner S.

The Strat has 5600 miles - charcoal silver color. Ride from the dealer to home was great (30 miles).

I am 5' 6" and felt that the handlebars are too far ! I need some suggestions for pullback risers (preferably pull back of 4 inches).

Thank you.

Welcome! itd be great to see some pictures of the ride. Barrons risers are popular. I don't have them but it's the ones I hear talked about the most.

Welcome!

Post some pics of that beast for sure! Tell us a bit more about yourself, other bikes you've owned, what made you pick the liner, what year (my guess is '07), what'd you pay, etc....

For risers, the standard Barron's will get you 2 1/4" back. http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/ba...art/BA-7422-00

Anything more and you'll need to look at replacing all your lines and cables with longer ones.
