I have been toying with the idea of trying yours but at the present use the Ram attachments on my Murph risers. Can you describe your upcoming version of Ram attachment?

I'll start by saying the order is due from the screw shop by the end of the month or sooner.  I was waiting till they were almost here so someone didn't beat me to the punch.  These are applicable to at least 2008-2012 and any many other bikes.  In the pictures you'll see arrows.  This product replaces any of these bolts with mine.  This is referred to as a male-female standoff.  The male end directly replaces any of the bolts shown and the female end is where the ram ball screws in.  These are made with stronger steel than the bolt its replacing so you won't have to worry about breaking or stripping.

The height of the standoff plus the ram ball gives it enough clearance to not obstruct any of the controls and allows you to get an open ended wrench on it.

The last pic shows the standoff without the threads.  This is just to give an idea of what it will look like.  I will also carry the Ram arms so that you can mount your gps or other device directly in line of sight

Since this will be right next to many other cables that head in the same direction as the electrical outlet, you can zip tie the power cables to these.  I would not recommend doing this to the throttle or brake lines. 

This utilizes an M6 x 100 screw male end so if the previous gen uses this size bolts as well, I'd love for someone to let me know.

I'll post a new entry with actual pics when they arrive.  List price is $30 which includes the ram ball.  I'll setup a discount for orders of multiple units.  TBD.

Let me know of any other info you need.

I see you are in Waterford. If I stop by your shop is there a bike I can sit on to feel first hand where the bars end up? I'm heading out from Grand Rapids on April 2nd to PA. You're not far out of the way.

I sent you a PM but so everyone else knows, visitors are always welcome.  Just make sure you let me know you're coming so that I'm actually there.

You've asked for it and now you can have it.  I've redesigned my pullback risers to accommodate bikes with lowered suspensions.  As you can see in the drawings, I've clearanced them to fit perfectly around the fork tubes.  They've been clearanced vertically 1 inch.  No part of the center section comes in contact with the risers.  These are on order and will be available the first week of April.  These will be available for preorder in a couple hours, first come first serve.  I'll be able to put up more pictures when they arrive.

I put a set of theses on my 2012, they feel great and I've put about 4k miles on with 2k miles in the Blue Ridge mountains and I love them. They come with good info and no lines to change, plus I still have to use a coupon.

Regarding 'dam potholes', model of his new risers, after seeing all these comments I made myself something  to try this out. I currently have a set of Phil's 2 inch risers on and made an adapter plate to go on top from 3/4 Al with a 1 inch aft setback (2 3/4" rise X 1" aft total). It uses all the existing hardware as well as those supplied with Phil's risers. All cables fit fine, but, the fitting which bolts to the front of the risers causes the upper section of the hoses to be very tight. I had to adjust the angle of the brake and clutch levers slightly. On your design, if you add a 30 degree chamfer to the front face and tap the mounting hole normal to this surface it would relieve the hose tention some by tilting the fitting aft. Yours are a nice one piece unit and look great, just thought I'd give you a design tip ( you can go to a 2 3/4" rise). Try it on one set to see if it helps. I haven't modified mine but may do it sometime. It does help to make you sit more upright and as an added benefit, my hands don't get as numb. Now I need to find some caps to cover the 4 exposed bolt heads.

Thanks for the tip.  I had been toying with the idea but I have so many other projects currently in production, I just haven't had the time.  As for the bolt caps, send me a PM and I'll send you some.

Potholes,

I'm 6'2" with a 37" sleeve, and need to do something to alleviate shoulder and arm pain from my riding position. I'm thinking moving the bars towards me might help, but further apart would also help. Would these pullback risers help given my height?

Since these won't change the angle of the grips without wedges, wondering if your pullback risers could be modified to rotate the bars so the grips are straighter? basically rotate the mounting holes for the bars.

Given your height, I'd run the Pullbacks WITH the wedges.  You'd move the bars back further AND get that angle change you're looking for.  Just make sure you put the wedges on top of the risers, never below.

Hello all,
I have these on my 09 with wedges. I put the 2010-12 tank cover on in place of the glovebox. This is a great product that greatly improves rider comfort. I highly recommend them. As far as handling goes, you will feel a slight difference, but adjust almost immediately. No regrets, go for it.
