Wanting to replace risers on 2005 VTX1300R

Hi
I have not been on forum for a while. I browse it, and always get good advice and ideas from it.
I am wanting to get these risers for the bike.
https://www.meancycles.com/store/par...?partID=207609
Does anyone have any experience with them? And can I use them as they say, without any cable mods?

I need to get the grips a little closer, and up a little as well.

Those should be fine. As far as I recall it's 4 inches up/back the maximum length without having to reroute. Those are actually the same as the ones I have (mine are another brand) and they went in perfectly. No rerouting.

Just be careful I found that any risers less than 4.5" will hit the speedo on tight turns.

Pullback risers I added several months ago. One of my most comfortable mods to date. Wish I had done it years ago..

I discovered by accident Walmart sells parts like these for a lot less. I bought a pair of 4" risers almost exactly like those for $39.

Good to hear
I will look into Walmart. That would be great if I could get a good set for $40.
appreciate all the advice.

Unfortunately Murphy law kicked in, and after I got back from my ride yesterday, I found my petcock leaking like a sieve.
Bike running great though.
It is not leaking around the big tank nut. I made sure it was tight and felt around it and gas was not coming from up there.
I am not a versed bike mechanic, but I can get by.
If you don't mind me asking on this post, Can I take the petcock off without removing the tank.
I would empty the tank by setting on Reserve and draining from the main gas line. And then remove the petcock.
Also can you repair with the repair kits only <a href="https://www.ebay.com/itm/2003-2009-Honda-VTX-1300S-R-OEM-Fuel-Petcock-Diaphragm-Cover-Set-16953-KEA-023/292964115621?fits=Model%3AVTX1300R%7CMake%3AHonda& epid=1422930328&hash=item443605a4a5:g:lcQAAOSwHu5c AEQj">here</a>.

Or whole assy <a href="https://www.ebay.com/b/Motorcycle-Fuel-Petcocks-Taps-for-Honda-VTX1300R/177781/bn_20946693">here</a>.
