    I want to put 4" pullback risers on by 2008 Super Glide Custom but want to know if there is enough cable and wire length to put the risers on without any other mods. Thanks for any help or info you can give.

    Not a sure thing, but you should be good on the wiring and the throttle and idle cables. If the brake line fits, you may have to bend it some. The clutch cable will probably need to be re-routed.

    When I put risers on mine, I was not comfortable trying to make the OEM cables and lines work, so I didn't use the risers. When I went to mini-apes, I changed to longer cables/lines to be on the safe side.

    I think you should be ok with just putting the risers on. However it is going to be tight. I would check to see where it is going to set your bars to the see if you can get the cables/wires to have that much play in them.

    No problem. They fit fine with OEM cables and lines.

    Thanks for the replys and information. The risers should raise the bars about 2 1/2 inchs. I'll check the play in the cables.

    I installed 4 in curved pull backs on my 2010 FXDC, no problem, all cables fit fine.

    You have a picture of the pull backs installed?
