Hi everyone, For those of you who responded to my last thread r/t my riding issues my most heartfelt gratitude! I, now, have another question. I ride an 09 nightster with stock handlebars. My short little self is a bit shy of properly reaching my handlebars which, it seems, is contributing to some of my difficulties with stopping (trying to reach and use the front break and therefore pulling my bars slightly to the right...consequently my bike lean and so on) and sometimes turning. I guess my choices to correct this is the mini ape bars (not really fond of the look and concerned they may be more difficult to steer) or the type of riser that also has the curve in it to bring the bars closer to me. I could use a couple of inches of in and up for an optimal fit. Any thoughts... Thanks Pynki , I guess I also have this question. I know I would need to have the clutch, throttle, brake cables replaced with the mini apes. Would I need to do that with a two inch up and toward me riser?
