Ideas for risers - speedo - ignition area ???

Thinking about using these risers.
Does anyone have ideas on where to relocate things if I use these?
I will be using a mini speedo - I may mount that down the side of the tank somewhere, or just on a clamp on the bar.
Will these straight risers make it difficult to access my key and ignition barrel? If so, where are some places that I could re-mount the key and ignition barrel?

Also, because these are straight and not pullbacks like the stock risers, do you think they would help me clear the tank with a drag bar?

Lots of folks flip the stock risers around.

You might want to use a pull back risers. I relocated my ignition switch down on the side of the bike.


I'm running tall risers with a drag bar.

But you probably need a set a lot shorter than mine.

That's cool Swamprabbit, I like your chopper, and i like how you put the ign down there. Did you run extended wiring under the tank or something?

I did a big search of the forum for ideas but I didn't find much. I have ordered the risers. They are made for rebels with the tapered bushes so they might be worth a try. I will have to take a look at the bike and think about possibilities for alternative mounting for speedo, ignition barrel, and the little coloured dash lights.

I did the drag bar as well and did some searching on the forum for ideas. One guy mentioned using Tusk 30mm risers from ebay. Im going to flip my risers first and go from there.
