Will these fit my '15 FXDB?

I'm looking to combine these with the fat drag bars on my '15 FXDB and I'm getting confused on whether they'll fit or not. I'm looking for the same OEM bar+riser combo that're on the '17 Low Rider S

I want to use this riser with stock bars on a 2013 FLSTFB. Will I need new cables and brake line? Thanks!

Asked by: giorgio
Hi Giorgio, If you are planning to keep your stock bars, this riser kit will not fit the '16 FLS because the bars are only 1" in diameter. If you're planning on changing out the bars to a 1.25" diameter style, you'll need to see your dealer for more info on cables and lines.

Regarding the Black Handlebar Riser P/N 55996-09

At the bottom of this riser (#55996-09), at the point where it contacts the top of the triple tree, this riser flares out a little. My question is, "What is the exact diameter of that 'flared piece' at the point where it contacts the triple tree?" (And THANKS, your answers are always very helpful!)
Asked by: WideGliderRider
Hi WideGliderRider, The diameter of the "flared" bottom of the riser is 1.625 inches. Thank you for your question.

Is this the standard riser on a 2014 Wide Glide or is it an inch taller?

Want to bring my handlebar up and back a little more - 1 to 2 inches should do it and not require cable or line changes. Thanks for any help.
Asked by: wpk0925
Hi wpk0925, This is the exact same parts as on your 14 FXDWG. The only riser kit we seem to have for the 1.25" handlebars that will come up and back more than 5" is the curved pull back fat risers in 6". It is 56267-09 in chrome. Comes up 6" and pull back is 1.7". Stock pull back on your FXDWG is 0.60". Thanks!
