Im 5' 4" and I need the bars to come back a few inches. I'm thinking there must be a solo seat that could bring me forward a tad too. Sorry to say the HD dealerships here in the Gatineau area.....are not knowledgeable.

Guy said that my bike can't accept risers!

Im all ears and working on getting more cash to buy parts.

Thnx from MM

1. Welcome to Harley Shop Talk. We're glad you found us.
2. Handlebars - Sportster Reach Handlebar Part Number 56021-04B
3. Seat - Low-Profile Solo Seat for Sportster Models- Part Number 51538-04
4. Riser - J&P Cycles Value Pullback Risers

Between those 3 parts you should gain some advantage.
Your bike CAN accept risers. Otherwise, it wouldn't come with any. But it does. So it can. I suspect he meant HD doesn't make a riser for that model other than the one that's on it now. Maybe.
Good luck, and again - Welcome.

Wife's Sportie. I can't find any more recent pictures, it now has 3" pullback risers and 12" ape hangers. It was replaced by her Nightrain which was replaced with a
Deluxe, which was replaced by a Tri-Glide, that was replaced by another Tri-Glide that was traded for her present Tri-Glide.

We kept the Sportie, her first Harley
