I wasn't issued a standard size body at birth. Short legs & arms and a long body. So, I have fit problems on everything I buy.

Yes, but it isn't the standard size extension cable. Dealer ordered in the standard size, and it was way too long. The next size shorter extension cable fits really well. If you get the 4" riser, make sure your dealer does its homework and orders in the correct length cables.

I love the risers. I like the stock handle bars, and the 4" bent-back riser gives me 2" more up and 2" more back. This position puts me in a relaxed arm extension position, and I have good control stop-to-stop of the handlebars. FYI: I have s 31" sleeve length.

I have the same bike with a few mods.
Anyone have a handlebar solution?
The executive who pencil whipped it should only be allowed to use that bar on all his bikes from now on.

I assume you were OK with the throttle position wires but just needed the clutch cable extension. If, by any chance, you could post and/or PM me the part number of the clutch cable extension you found worked properly - please let me know as my riser are inbound.

NO, the dealer didn't give me the part number. FYI the front brake cable also had to be extended.

That's a bummer
Thinking the sport glide handlebars might be perfect for a lowrider

So much goes into creating a bike that "feels" right--starting with "where" and "how" you ride. Besides the obvious accommodating physical characteristics, the interaction between the various components can rapidly change the feel of any one component. I like the stock handlebars that came on the Low Rider, but I didn't like where they were positioned relative to my arm length (reach) and height (prefer an upright sitting position). If you are going to the expense of replacing the stock handlebars, spend some time exploring what feels the best, not just looks right. I am sure that whatever you do, you will be much happier in the long-run if you get the right feel.

Good luck.

Did somebody say the Sport Glide bars won't work?
This post is confusing to me, maybe try starting a new thread with your question.

Other manufacturers similar fender bikes have them under the taillights, etc. I still like the laydown plates, but still, those uprights are flat out dangerous.
