    Any advice on how big a riser you can put on a 09 superglide without needing longer cables? I am thinking about 4 1/2 to 5 inches.

    I tried 4" risers and it was a stretch for the brakeline. I had to bend the steel tubing portions to make it reach.

    Even after I installed the risers, I still did not like the bars and the position they put my hands in. I removed the risers and went with a set of take-off Street Bob mini-apes and cables. It was well worth the effort to do the swap.

    If you go with 4.5" - 5" risers, you very well may nn\eed cables and lines. The Street Bob cable set-up should work well and should be available on eBay for a cheap swap.

    I put a set of 4 1/2 pull back risers on mine with no issues. speedo wire was cutting it close though.

    I put them on with no problems at all.

    Not an issue on '09's as they have a fully flexible break line.

    Cheers all, sounds like I'll go with the risers and see how it feels.
