    I will check it out but my pitbull handlebars are thicker than the big bear bars.

    Your pit is an 04.... they might not be the same as the bars on the 05 and up?

    So this is a old post but here goes. I want to raise my bars also. Did not want to cut a notch. How about chrome wheel spacers?
    They are 1.25 inch long and have .75 inside dia. could not find the outside dia. It looks close to 1.25 though. JP Cycles have them.

    Will find a 3/4 inch rubber hose to fill the space between the 1/2 bolt and 3/4 inside dia. of spacer.

    Why do you have to cut a notch? I have a set of 1" risers that I had on my 05 Bulldog and I never had to notch anything.

    John, See post 45 - 47 of this thread. Post 47 shows why, the riser are made to fit around the bottom of the bars. Big Dog has a welded plate across the bottom for speedo mount. Even though Joe did a excellent job notching them to fit. Looks good but chrome can start to peel. Also they where $68 plus bolts. With these spacers there will be two flat surfaces mating together and total cost with bolts is $36 plus tax / shipping. I'm also replacing the rubber bushings with poly from WSW so the steel insert from the old bushing might work for inside these spacers. http://www.wildsteedworx.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65_68_173_72_99&products_id=473

    Mastiff bar spacers.jpg There's no notching with these! I don't know if someone just made these or what, I bought them back in 2011 from a member here at the time.

    These are some L.A.Chopper spacers that I stripped the chrome off and notched for my 04 Pit. Longer bolts were all I needed. 1 1/2" spacers. They have been on for about 5yrs?

    Yes I think someone made them, not sure where to buy them. What I am planning to do should look the same. Just have one bolt going through to handle bars. 3 3/4 inch long bolts.

    I am sure they will work as long as you have a spacer inside the spacers to take up the gap between the bolt and the spacer, when you get them done post a few pics!

    I put Pitbull bars on my K-9 -- what an improvement -- did have to change cables but it was worth it.

    PM me and maybe we can meet and you can check out the feel -- I'm just down the road from you!

    It's been a while, but I put in the handle bar spacer on yesterday. Here are some pics.

    I used the steel insert from the old rubber bushing for the space between the bolt and the wheel spacer. Worked Great.

    Yes It feels great, the main reason was to keep the cables from hitting my gas tank. They made a mark on it.
