Great product. Just put it on the bike and rode a few hundred miles and it made a world of difference. The only risers I could find for the Valkyrie that had a 1.5" pullback. The cables are just barely long enough. If you leave the throttle cables in front of the triple tree, when you turn the bars all the way to the left, it will cause the throttle to rotate very slightly. I was considering if this might be a problem, but it hasn't been. When do you ever turn the bars all the way to one side, let alone while in gear and desiring no power (and not pulling in the clutch). Never as far as I'm concerned. My father ran the lines under the back of the triple tree. This causes them to stick out to the side kinda far, potentially binds the cable when you turn the fork all the way to the right, and the cable will hit the tank (again, when the fork is all the way right). We've both ridden hundreds of miles with our respective set-ups with no problems. Simple installation. Great look. Appears to be very solid construction. If I have any problems, I'll be sure to update, but as of right now they are exactly what I wanted. They are a good bit pricier than some of the other options, but these were the only ones with that 1.5" pullback (I wanted more than 1") and the part itself is more substantial than others (metal is significantly thicker/bulkier than some of the others).
