Default Measurement request on a dna springer?

Can someone measure the stem nut height on a dna springer for me?

Im thinking of getting a se of those 1/2"-13 X 1/2"-20 ADAPTER STUDS for standard riser use on springer front ends.

I have a set of new 1" shorty risers but want to make sure my bars clear the stem nut before I buy the adapter studs.

If this won't work I'll probably get some 2" springer risers. I would rather them be as low as possible since I am going to run some 5" rise bars.

Btw. My bike is at my dads in another state. Im not just lazy.

gracias.

On my bike their is an inch and a sixteenth gap between the bars and the center stem nut, and I am using 1 3/4" risers, so I dont see why you couldn't use one inch risers on the bike. Thats what I was going to use before my buddy made me my brass risers! i took a detailed shot but photo bucket is down so I couldnt load the pic, ill email it to you later if needed.

Interesting. My shorty risers didn't clear the stem nut, so a fellow JJer turned out a pair of .250 spacers.

Front end is now apart and off the bike. What image are you trying to get? Clearance? Risers with spacers? I can maybe give a mock-up pic tomorrow if time permits.

Here's a pic with drags turned down...Shorties with said spacers.
