Handlebar Bushings

QuestionI have an ’07 Night Train with 4″ risers and drag bar. The bar doesn’t wobble, but stays canted left or right, depending on the twist to the fork. The handlebar bushings were new, I changed to hard plastic. Still no good. I even wrapped the bolts for less play. A fix here would be great; 4 years in need.

AnswerTry shortening the bushing sleeves a little. 1/8, or 1/4″. Also, look for riser bolts with a shorter shoulder section.

    After 5 years, I solved my handlebar problem: Epoxy the riser to the top bushing washer. Sanding the chromed washer will help.

    Cut more threads on the riser bolts with a die nut, worked for me.
