Bar Risers

The last I knew, the only handlebar risers out there for the Thunderbird are Spacer Jim's. Anybody know different?

T-Style?

I am thinking of getting the T-Style handle bars. Does anyone know if those handlebars are adjustable with any of the spacers available?

Things are not always as they appear to be

there are these riser spacers http://www.fasteddysports.com/?page_id=3&product_id=822

I had some and they will work with the stock length cables, some minor re-routing may be needed.

Yes I did order it as it did look like it is going to need it, not enough play there I don't think.

The spacers from Spacer Jim, will work just fine with out a longer brake line....

Jim used my bike as his test bike. The first set was 1.125" long and the they fit but the cable was tight... He shortened the second pair to 1.0 and they fit fine... The pics are my bike...
