  • Looking for handlebar riser cap

    The 1st owner of my 08 installed handlebar risers (I'm the 2nd owner - bought in 2010). I don't know anything about them but just recently noticed that the cap has fallen out of the right side. I did not notice losing it. Does anybody have an idea of what kind of risers these are so I can contact the maker for a replacement?

    Thanks for any assistance in advance!

    I bought some Risers from Rocky that is a member on here and they came with those caps included. Perhaps he can hook you up. http://www.theglforum.com/member/284-rocky

      Your local Home depot should have Nickel Plated steel plugs which you can paint black.

      The black plugs seem hard to come by.

        Those are not the Comfort Riser bolts I use. (Those are button head allem bolts)
        I can see that those are the flat rubber sticky backed disc type. I can also see the old glue ring in the second picture.

        I use this type in my kits. http://www.mcmaster.com/#9563k68/=u5sf3m

        A good hardware store should have what you need. (It would cost you $5.25 in a padded envelope for a free set from me)


        Get the old glue off with WD-40

        $1.08 apiece - bought two and $4.74 for flat Rustoleum. Now have a matching pair again. Thanks for the advice!

          Those are the plugs that come with the Kuryakyn risers. I kept losing one and went to home depot and bought a bag of the plugs used for plugging in the holes placed in vinyl siding when they spray in insulation. Spray painted them with flat black rustoleum and you can't tell the difference.

            Kuryakyn risers.
            by Frozn in Minnesota
            I installed the Kuryakyn risers , up back and in, set. Feels good on the back and arms, but the in part is too much on the wrists. Question can a person switch side to side, for a more of a turn out?...
