I don't remember how tall they were, but I did have risers on mine. I went back to stock.

My cousin has the hoppe fairing with kury 4" risers on her 1300 retro and it worked well for her. I have 6" risers with a hoppe fairing on my 1800c and it fits great. There were just enough room to clear the radio cover, about 2 inches
hope this helps

Yup. Electraglide fairing. Handlebars sat above too high when I looked at it. Then again, the fairing sits a little low on my bike too. The reseviour cover just peaks a little over the top and the cup looking things on each side on a harley cover your grips so your hands don't feel the wind. The way mine is mounted the wind goes over the top of my hands.

You can see the reseviour and also part of the grip.

When I had my HD fairing on I had the Wishmaster riser and any more than that would have been a little much - bars (R model) would have been too high. I had the fairing mounted as low as I could, didn't want a big space between the headlight and fairing.
