Hi folks,

I'm finally taking delivery of a Honda Fury next week. I want to add ape hangers, probably from fob, as they have a mount for the speedo:

but, from the web page above, I need 1 to 1 & ½" risers to mount the bars.

I googled bar risers for the fury and got a choice of makes but I don't know which risers will work with these ape hangers?

I would appreciate it if anyone here could help me?

thanks

shay

I would maybe email the bar maker and ask what the clearance is when the speedo is mounted in the bars. I am going to assume you will need a set with a blunt top (less material). Good luck and welcome to the NATION!

meancycles.com replied to my email with links to ape hangers, risers and cables.

The fury arrives Friday ( hopefully ) and will ride it for. a couple of months before fitting the apes.

thanks for the help... I've wanted a Fury for years and finally had the money and found one that I liked.

I'm gonna step in here and take over your post (sorry I think this'll be helpful for those researching).

I'm on ebay right now, looking at the multitude of f**kn risers out there.

As I understand it, the size of the clamp hole has to do with the bars' diameter, so that must be decided prior. The vertical height of the risers can also be decided after. But to install the risers onto the Fury itself, that has to do with the Fury's measurements.

Since I have to know what I'm looking for, cause nothing is ever standard, can someone please post here the dimensions required to fit the risers on a Honda Fury (all models)?

I realize there are different styles, what I'm interested in knowing is the dimensions required for the connection between the risers' base and the Honda Fury's tree plate. Should it it 1", 1-1/4"...? Also is there a required screw size (length and width)?

Thanks to whoever can lend a hand!

Go online and check out an exploded parts diagram, it should give you the bolt and thread pitch. Length will be custom to the risers you get. Which then will have to match the diameter of your apes

The Honda Fury Service manual has exploded parts diagram. It does not have bolt and thread pitch. The only specified value seems to be the torque at which to tighten the bolt holding the OEM handlebars.

As per RevZilla, looks like a 12mm self-locking nut is required for the OEM handlebar. So I'm gonna try and find a 12mm-bolting riser. I'm presuming it will come with its own self-locking nut, so that should be enough.
Thanks for the idea @krashDH !!

Just one quick question - the OEM bars, are they 1" diameter at the bolt-on space? are they also 1" diameter at the handles?
(I have Krator spiked black grips, and I don't know if they come in different sizes. I wanna fit these on an FMB 1" diam. ape set, but I'm currently not sure if these grips would fit.)

Yeah they are M12. The stock bars have a stud on the bottom that accepts that nut. In the case that you are switching to a riser, the pitch isn't really of a concern. If you were to replace the nut onto the factory bars, you'd have to match the pitch. You could to that at any hardware store.

That being said, look for any risers that have an M12 female thread in them. Or ones that have an M12 stud off the bottom. If the risers have a female thread in them, usually the bolts will come with the risers, but make sure they are the appropriate length. Not too short (ie you want more than a few threads of engagement) and not too long, or you'll bottom out in the riser before they are torqued. I'd also recommend some threadlocker AND a lock washer under the bolt head. You don't want those coming loose.

After that, the only thing you need to worry about is the riser clamp diameter, and make sure it matches the clamping area of the bars you're using. I think most risers come knurled, but if not you can add some carbon fiber paste or something between the bar and riser interface (it's basically goop that has grit "suspended" in the gel) so when you clamp down, it creates a rough clamping surface so the bars won't slip.

yeah i am learning... the handlebars knurl is the same as harley davidson springer. it is wider! like every bike is 3.5 but no honda wants to do 4.75 ish. lol so all the springer bars can be used. tc bro. have them starting at like $99. brass balls risers is next. i got some other ones and not sure I like them.. its a learning process for sure..

I put 6 inch risers on my Fury with a 12 over springer. Everything bolted in place after i welded the neck on. Just get a riser tall enough so everything will clear the fuel tank when turning. Most of the risers take a 12 or 14 mm bolt that comes with them.
