Ok, I really need to relieve some neck pain. After a few hours i'm hurting. I checked a few posts and people are saying that risers will do the trick. I found some on ebay -

eBay Motors: Kawasaki Vulcan Classic Nomad Handlebar Risers 800/1500 (item 110379740835 end time Apr-26-09 19:45:54 PDT)

I dont want to spend 100 bucks or more on risers mainly because i don't have it right now.

How do you know what size to get and does anyone have pictures of some on their vn900 custom without a windshield so i can see what i'm getting into?

Thanks
Ride Safe

I'm sure someone with a 900 custom will chime in soon, but it looks like those riser extensions are made for the 900 Classic, and bikes with standard risers. I don't know if they will fit your drag bars.

Back when I had a Mean Streak (which had similar bars to your 900 custom) I purchased a set of Gen-Mar risers which really did the job.

Scootworks seems to sell a 900 Custom riser kit for $80.00 It looks similar to the one you have linked to.

ive have not read good things about them. They don't sell the bolts with them, etc.. Did it help you when you put them on the mean streak?

1-3/4" rise and 1-1/2" of pullback. Not a lot but it makes a big difference in the ride. Any bigger risers would force you to reroute the cables behind the triple tree or get longer cables.
