    My wife has a '09 Heritage. I am thinking of installing 3" risers with 1.5" pullback to keep her throttle hand from falling asleep. This worked well with the metric bike she had. Any thoughts on this?:52:

    I simply rotated the handle bars toward my seat and adjusted the controls to the most comfortable position. It solved the long reach issue on my Heritage.

    I did both, 2.5" risers & also pulled the handle bars back and adjusted the controls. Shoulder pain is gone & I feel in much more control of the bike now.

    Other then her throttle hand going numb is she comfortable?
    If so maybe all she needs is smaller grips.

    were you able to use the same cables or did you have to change them out. We've order a set of 3.5 up and1.5 back hope this fix the problem and hope I dont have to change cables

    Where did you find the 2.5 inch risers? Did they touch your speedometer houseing when the wheel is turned as sharpe as they will go?
