4" Pullback risers on my Fat Boy

After mulling over several options for my handlebar issue, I decided to give the 4" pullback risers a shot. I put them on tonight--without needing to change the cabling (thank God!) The new pullback risers made all the difference in the world! I will not go as far as to say they're as comfortable as the softail deluxe, but closer than I imagined they'd be! I've heard a number of us fatboy fans grumble about the handlebars! Before spending a mint (the 10" baby-apes with all the new cabling was going to run me $800 before tax) on new 'bars, give them a try. For $139, how do you go wrong?

I used the 4.5" pullback risers on my 04 Fatty. They were perfect for me.

For those out there thinking about doing this:
I just installed 4.5" risers. I made 2 cable adjustments.
1. moved the clutch cable to the front of the handlebars
2. moved the brake line in front of the throttle cables to keep from binding against them and flipped the top brake line bracket.

end result is no problems with lines and cables.
