Default Where to find risers?

I've searched, and googled etc. Haven't found a decent source for risers for an 08 Kingpin.

I have the stock risers now, but would like to go up and pull back a few inches to get a bit more comfortable riding position.

I found a set and installed them this weekend. Not Victory specific but I think they look good:

Found them on eBay, and they are not Victory specific. You will have to get 2 1/2"x13x3" bolts. I bought 2, 1/2"x1-5/8" chrome washers for under the riser to hide the rubber bushing and used blue locktite on the bolts.

Look here for a few different sizes of these.

Best prices I found on risers and he shipped fast.

Probably, I just make sure the diameter at the base of the riser is not larger than the opening on the triple tree where the riser fits down in. I see they mention the bolt sizing you'll need on that page as well.

Did you need to get longer control cables?

For the ones I got, I did not. I did need to pull the power cable out of the metal spring that holds it near the speedo to get full turn to the right stop without binding. Otherwise everything seems fine.
