    Hi All, I am looking to upgrade the handlebars on my 1300c. Unfortunately my arms are a little too short for the stock drag bars.

  3. Question New Risers and Cables

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Decided to put some 4 1/2" risers with 1 1 1/2" pullback. Tired of shoulders and neck cramping to the point I cant sleep. Like the new position but throttle cables are just a bit to short no matter how I route them. I tried them behind the tree but they bind up when close to full lock and...

I countered with some 2" up/2" back Rivco risers, but that has not been enough. I did a 700 mile ride a couple of weeks...
