    G'Day guys. I have a 2005 FatBoy with standard handlebars and it feels as if it would be more comfortable to ride if I raised them another 2". I assume from looking that the standard risers are about 2", if so , that would mean I would need to find some 4" risers to set this up? Has anyone here tried this and if so , how did it go in terms of comfort and handling? Apologies if this has been done to death before.

    The HD 56269-09 pull back riser is described as a 4" curved riser. Fits on my 2010 FB with no problem, same cables. You will have to adjust how cables hang/fit, but real easy.
    HD list same part # for 05' FatBoy. Hope this helps!

    I put the 4 inch riser on my 04 Fatboy and it really worked for me. Much more comfortable on the longer rides. I'm 6ft. tall,if that helps. Didn't change any cables just readjusted.

    Thanks for your responses guys. I'm 6'1" and find myself leaning forward a bit. Sounds like the risers are the way to go. Thanks again, much appreciated.
