That bike looks good, The riser bushings are usualy the reason for play when ya work the bars. I found that getting the poly bushings vs. the rubber ones helps a lot.

Great job man!!!! As for those risers. the bushings in them are new and made to flex. Make some solid ones or maybe V Twin has them. Solid mount em and youll be set

Caint wait to see those grips turn yellow:D

All of the aftermarket distributors offer urethane bushings that are a lot firmer than the factory rubber bushings. Just check with your local independant bike shop.
