hi all, i want to replace my pullback risers with 4" straights . i also wanted to put drag bars on but it looks like i would have to use the pull back risers. so my question is if i use the straight risers with the stock bars would i be able to adjust them foward a little to get them back to almost where they were. its about 2" thanks in advanced

You may want to consider just changing the bars..H-D makes a model that you can run the wires inside and will bring the bars back a couple of inches..

hi Groucho, by the way my lowrider is the same color.regarding your answer i want to change the pull back risers to straight ones which would pull the grips about 2" away from me. i want to try and get them back or close to where they originally were with straight risers.for some reason i dont like the looks of the pullback risers. thanks ps how do you like the color. i ordered that color sight un seen. i really like it.

re handle bar risers

hi groucho. i dont know what i,m going to do now.theres a site www.customhandlebars.com that will custom make bars to your specifications.since i want to change my pullbacks to straight that may be the best way to go for me. i went to harley and sat on a bike with straight risers dont remember which model but i could hardley reach the grips. do you or anyone else know if the superglide has straight risers.
