    So this might seem like a stupid newbie Q BUT- I recently added 6" risers to my stock '94 XLH 1200 forks and bars. I modded the gauges successfully and all the cables are free from binds and have full travel on the steering.
    I LOVE THE RIDE.
    My question is regarding the riser to damper connection. It seems like there should be some sort of plate or rigid spacer between the risers and the damper. As it is, the riser is sitting directly on the damper so that there is a bit of forward play even though everything is tight and operating.
    Please advise.
    Thanks
