Default handlebars

My better half rides a 08 hammer. She is only 5`2, so I lowered the bike for her, and she reaches the ground just fine. Nowl, she would like a little shorter reach to the bars. Suggestions for the best and cheapest way to do this? Looked into a pair of risers, since the hammer bars have none, and thinking of heritage style mini apes. Anyone tried these?

Just put some 5" risers on my Vegas (std were 3") and its better,could have gone for 6" mind. Be careful on the bolts front,the ones I had off ebay didnt come with mounting bolts,I assumed these were 12mm and nearly stripped the threads,they were 1/2" unc x3" long required.

Default kapscomoto risers

i put 3.5" pullback risers on my 13 hammer for cheap, easily installed with 1/2 X 13 bolts from under the top "tree". longer ones available but was concerned with cable lengths. here's a pic
