Hello Chaps

First off what do you think off these??

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Chrome-Handlebar-Softail-Kawasaki-Boulevard/dp/B009M9966E/ref=sr_1_41?ie=UTF8&qid=1391429898&sr=8-41&keywords=Chrome+Billet+Handlebars


Question is though, how much differrence do risers make, wouldnt i better of just getting new Handle Bars?

Pros and Cons??

Whatever tickles your fancy mate.
It's down to looks and your preference as both, the risers and handlebars will offer the same - height and pullback.

You have to ask yourself what you want - higher riser look, or stubby risers and long handlebar...AND...how much of a difference you want? Risers can only take you so far.

I personally will never go with long risers...in fact I'll probably look at getting shorter ones to set the apes lower to create streamlined look with triple tee.

My input is the M800/M50 have them as standard,so if anyone you know has an M800 sit on there bike and see the difference,or go to your dealer if he has any bikes in.

For the price they are good, better looking than the stock ones.  
As Marcins says it all depends on what your after. If you want the bars higher or lower or slightly closer to you or slightly further away then risers can do that for you as there are so many

Nice, I've got some but they'll hit the speedo housing on full lock, The pull back is a fraction to far.

Between the risers and triple tree? I tried that but it didn't work, I tried it to cover where the bottom of the riser is square against the round black rubber on the triple tree, Martin (smart) has them on his intruder and I think they only just touch the housing on one side, On mine it was both sides and felt it could crack the housing if hit it hard.

This may sound silly but would a millimeter bare or rod or something under the front of the riser chuck the top of the riser back a lot more than a bit all the way under which would just raise them a fraction? Or maybe a thin bit of metal that was thicker at the rear than the front by a little bit to do the same?
