I am looking at a set of 27 1/2" wide flat drag bars for my legend. I believe they have a 3 3/4" pullback... question is, will I need risers or not? thanks in advance from a noob...

I had drag bars on my '99 Legend a long time ago w/ no risers... found an old thread, here's how I put it at the time:

At full lock, the turn signal switch just touches the tank on the one side - on the other there's a cm or so of daylight. So there's no problem w/ actually hitting the tank, you just have to watch your thumbs when maneuvering in the parking lot...
So they will fit w/o risers (assuming they're the same dimensions as the drag bars I used, which were Emgo generics). But in retrospect I'd recommend risers to get a bit more clearance... you can use generic Gen-Mar ones if you want to go cheap, or find some TBS risers if you want something nicer looking.

HTH.

cheers,
