Hi all, new to this site. Had a question, I have an 06 FXSTI and it has the stock bars on her. I saw a set up I liked a lot going through some websites but of course it had no information on it. I have attached a picture of the bike, I believe it has 8" risers, if I am wrong please let me know. What size bars do you guys think it has? Sorry for all the questions but hoping someone here can help me.

I dunno. I've watched a few porn flicks. I'm pretty sure those risers aren't 8". They seem "longer".
For reference, the outside edge of the chrome on that particular headlight assembly is about 6 1/4 inches diameter in real life.
I measured the picture and did some horrible math. I think those risers are close to 11". (estimated)

Eyeballing it I'd say 12".

I'm use to Wild1's with integrated risers. Those are really high! Think the ones on my Deuce were about 6"' and I thought they were high.

Best pic i could find at a moments notice. Risers are integrated with the handlebars:

Ordy, those look really good! I bet with that same setup I can use all my stock cables? I like those bars, how many inches pullback did those have to them?

I think these are the ones Ordy had.

Nicer look and easy install with the stock cables

You are probably going to have to replace the cables, pretty unlikely the 'stock' cables will reach

Stock cables

Those are the ones.

You run your electrical inside the bars
