MLB Risers

Post by Coomers »



Good Day,

Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of MLB Risers for an 06 Goldwing? The online sights I have found aren't responding to my emails or answering their phone.

Thanks,

Having a correct name could help your search...

Try 'MBL Risers'?

I was wondering what Major League Baseball had to do with Gold Wings... :shock: :P

No Luck so far.
Seems the manufacture is out of business and I'll have to see if I can find a used set.
My wife and I tried taking the Goldwing last weekend to a friends cottage but turned back and road the concours instead, I'm only 5.8 and am not able to sit back in the seat enough to not get a sore back.
I see there are other risers out there but they don't look a though they pull back at all.

There are risers sold on AliExpress but no information is given on how much pullback / width etc they provide.

I found them on ebay for my 2002 GL1800. I think I only paid about $25.00 for the set brand new. Try ebay.

Thanks Guys,

I ordered as set off Ebay this morning and looking forward to trying them out.
I was reluctant to purchasing them only because there was no information on how far back they moved the bars.
Once all the parts arrive I'll be busy installing Traxxion springs, All Balls steering head bearings and the the pullback risers. Once all that is complete I'll have to cut the windshield down so as I can look over it.

Thanks Again,

When you receive them, check out the heads of the bolts that they come with to make sure that they don't stick out above the tapered plate. The ones that I bought had bolt heads that stuck up about 1/16 inch above the plate so, I went to my bench grinder and carefully faced the top of the bolt heads to remove about 1/16 inch so the handlebar mount would lay flat on the tapered plate. The adapter will raise the bar about 3/4 inch and draw them back about the same. For me this is way better for my shoulders as I would absentmindedly 'stiff arm' the original placement of the bars, and this would cause me discomfort.

Thanks for the heads up, I was hoping they would pull back further. I'm only 5,8 and need to be able to sit back further in the seat.

I installed Traxxion Springs this weekend which raised the front end considerably, so I don't feel bar height is the problem.

We'll see...
