Bobber risers using Speedmaster parts

Probably been done before, but I fitted the oem Speedmaster risers to my bobber.
Usual needs as for other higher bars; had to take the clutch cable out of the guide, had to disconnect and re route the brake pipe- luckily I managed to bleed it through the master cylinder with the top off and gentle lever pumping. Apart from slackening the electric cables (odd not seeing a throttle cable for the first time) all went well but can’t seem to use the bobber bar clamp.

By the way, what torque setting should I have on the bolts that hold the risers in?

Here’s a pic showing the end result. I was after higher bars, sort of in between standard and the mini apes as I found them too high ( short arms, short legs- just overall short really). Ideally I like the 70’s Bonneville US version. On the road it suits me fine although noticeably less weight on the front which I’ll adjust my riding style for.

Hi @Birdy ,

I agree, looks really great mate.

I ended up having to highly modify my mini-apes to get something I liked. I think Triumph are missing the mark here, as they should offer a whole load of handlebars for the Bobber/Speedy. It's one of the most popular and easiest changes to make, just look to the HD scene. The market it out there, if they don't make them, someone else will ( I hope ).

Cheerio,

Roy

I dig the look in the "end result" picture. I suspect this is because I can't see the silver handlebars, which is what was throwing me off in the initial pics. Perhaps some off-season powdercoating, if you agree that black bars would give it a more cohesive look. If you dig the silver bars though, it's all good. As we always say on this forum, it's all about what YOU like rather than others' opinions that counts.

Look great, do you have the part number for the risers? I have the motone risers but I think this looks great. Also any details on the install would be interesting.
