Default In search of 1998 FXSTS Riser Adapters

I've been trying to find adapters for standard thread risers. The front end is 5/8-18 thread, and standard risers are 1/2-13 thread. Does anyone here know of a product to adapt that? Or does anyone here make anything to do this?

Thanks everyone!

I think you need riser adapter studs.

Does anyone make one that doesn't have the no threaded portion on the top side? I want to use a riser that doesn't have a long base to cover those up.

Something like this would be cool. But I can't seem to find anything that is this style, with the right threads.

Why not just drill and tap your risers?

I think Vtwin might have the ones you posted in your last post, check their site.

If not, do as Liam mentioned. Or go to a local machine shop and ask if they can turn those for you. You might hit a shop that can help and not charge that much.
