I changed my 1300c bars to 1300r bars with 5 1/4 in tall straight risers. I used stock 1300r clutch and throttle cables, they are about 2 inches longer. It will also help to route the cables behind the triple tree. There is just enough wiring in the headlight bucket to reach. I was able to modify the stock brake line to reach but it is tight, Have had no problems for over 15 years.Hello, ya'll. .
I'm looking for longer cables since I am adding different handle bars for more comfort. The standard handlebars on my 2004 VTX 1300C isn't as comfortable as they used to be. Any suggestions?
The top clamps are stock Honda risers. The bottom pieces were made for me by a friend at a machine shop. They are copies of the Thinman risers and are polished stainless steel.are those risers 2 piece? i.e. the bottom barrel looking area is chrome and the upper is polished? where did you find those, I would love to put those under my bars for another 2 inch lift.
I’m going to guess that thin man risers are not available any longer seeing as his last post was 2006The top clamps are stock Honda risers. The bottom pieces were made for me by a friend at a machine shop. They are copies of the Thinman risers and are polished stainless steel.
Why cant he use a socket of his choice..go to machine shop have them use a lathe to remove writing ,then rechrome...maybe more work than u care to do ...but hey its risers....good luckMaybe he could give you the dimensions and specs? Buy round aluminum stock, cut to length, drill and tap from both ends.
