    I've got a mostly-stock '09 dyna that I'm lookin to raise the handlebars to shoulder or near-shoulder level by changing the risers (not going apes).
    My question is: once you get +6 inch risers, how much difference is there in str8 risers vs pullback risers? any other consideration to take into account between the two?

    Because the triple tree is at a slight angle, the actual pullback will be larger
    than advertised. I put 4" risers with 1" pull back on my '92 Dyna, and the bars were way too close to my body.

    In addition to what Breeze has said, what about the length of cables???

    I'm figuring I'll have to replace the cables w/ longer ones.
