    These might be the best bang for the buck you can get for a C14.
    I didn't think the ride position was all that bad before, but this made big difference.
    Everything just feels more natural, more relaxed feel on the shoulders and back.

    Hi Dave, good hearing from you, and thanks for the post! This thread is about our bar risers. Are you asking about the alternator/charging issue? That’s on a different thread, and the moaning whale mod should be done on yours. We do it with the FK install.

    Hello!!. Did you need a cable adjustment?. It looks that the left brake cable is too tight to handle with a bar riser.
    Thank you.

    Hola, David. We have sold and installed quite a few of these, and nothing what ever needed as to clutch, brake or throttle cables.

    Just got my risers a few days ago, and haven't had a chance to ride much with them yet. I needed them more than most people probably do, as I have a couple of bum elbows, and cannot completely straighten either arm.
    So far, the feel is great. I will come back and add to this post after I've done some more miles.

    Finally had the opportunity to install risers on my Eldorado. Question about tightening clamps and did not want to bother Todd on the weekend. Tighten front most bolts first and then backs with smaller gap up front, or have equal gaps front and rear? I was told long ago fronts first, but there tends to be many opinions depending on application.
    Thanks
    Scott

    Front screws first, then rear screws. This leaves the gap under the rear screws. The reasoning is that this prevents the bar from rotating down which is more likely as you typically push down on the grips more often then you would lift up.
