Have read somewhere that Aeromach risers can touch the instrument cluster housing when the bars are turned to extremes - anyone else experienced this as a problem??
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM DOWN UNDER. :grin:

I had 6" Aeromach risers w/ 35 degree drag bar on my Mean Streak w/o any problem. The installation was easy and does not require any wiring changes. The set up pulls back the bar about 2-3 inches and you sit upright. I had the set up for about 6 months and changed it back to the stock bar. W/O a windshield, upright sitting is difficult when you are cruising down the freeway at 90 MPH. The stock bar makes high speed cruising easier w/o a windshield. Now, I like the stock set up more than the upright position even at low speeds.

P.S- I should note that the 6" Aeromach risers were made specifically for the Mean Streak.

I have Aeromach's chopper risers. Nice piece but if your dealer doesn't have them in stock, your going to wait a while. Aeromach makes good stuff but they are not the quickest shippers. I ended up waiting 6 weeks for mine and when the showed up they had sent me the M12 version (Kawa uses M10 bolts) and they told me they had no M10 in stock when I called!!! So I said screw it and drilled the triple trees to fit the M12! Put a set of Wisky bar on 'em and looks good if you ask me! I may be biased though.......

I have the 4" Aeromachs on my 1600 classic. No problems at all. Love the look and the way they put the bar back about 1.5 inches closer to me.

Thanks everyone - seems there's no cause for concern and despite delays I think they are the one for me.
Happy New Year everyone.

I have the 4" risers also. they went on easy with no problem. that extra inch and a half makes alot of difference.
