actually quite a bit of work since the risers are built into the top tree on the vn750.

did myself its a pretty straight forward job can be done in about 30 minutes if your not changing to new grips with glue ......you can just get a 7/8 straight bar instead of a drag bar


here is a 32 inch

here is a 26 inch

seems the straight bars are a little more pricey

do you need risers or just the bars?
straight bars you might not need them but I had to since the drag bars are bent a little and the controls hit the tank you will have to re route all your cables though or get shorter ones., I only had to re route my choke and clutch cable with the 3.5 risers

order the bars first then if you need risers get them that's what I did ,I didn't really want risers but had to get em


heres a real good idea you could get 7/8 sportbike clipons that attach to the forks instead of the stock handle bar mount just measure the mm of the vulcan forks, and you can adjust those how straight or angled you want them:smiley_th

here is what I put on my 750 I think they were around twenty bucks from JC Whitney they were called Daytona bend,and I didn't have to buy risers,I did however switch to a KZ1000 clutch cable yo do away with the the curved fitting on the end of the cable where it goes into the lever.Those are the stock riser caps with the Kawasaki emblem cut out of the middle and dressed with a file and then polished out,not necessary but I liked the look of individual clamps.

they look good but im looking for more of a straight bar.


like these. Im just wondering if adding risers are necessary or not? Seems like removing the stuff off is a pretty simple job i just wanted to know if its difficult job thats all.
