I recently put 3.5" risers with mini apes on my Dyna. It's not a great photo but it may help you visualise. The gauges don't do it any favours either...

Scored a pair of 14 s for $45 off eBay, to my door. :D Should only have to get longer brake line and maybe throttle cables.

Good price, couldn't even get them chromed for that price here.

Could be worth tightening up the bottom bends a bit to reduce width which I think you will find more comfortable and controllable.

Nice bars Henry... should be nice for control too, though higher than I personally like to run.

You could possibly put one inch risers on to help with the throttle cable length......

I'd prefer to keep height, will probably go see prof, see what he has. They still fit just would like a bit more length.
Good idea. My riser are pretty tall .

Been doing some stuff on my bike while the weather is so bad,
The prof helped me get my seat a bit more king ,queen style.

I have sewn it up by hand to see if I make it look good before I stick it through a sewing machine. Pretty happy with it.
Just have to put it put through a machine and turn it right way out and on it goes. :D
I'm also doing forward controls a bit more forward and more tidy. Will get phones up in next day or so.

We built up the seat with a pile of foam the other day. When Jon came back yesterday I showed him how to shape the foam (consolidated) with an angle grinder. "Caress it Jon. Gently caress it." His heavy hand gradually lightened up and he did a great job.

When he began talking about covering the seat, I suggested an upholsterer and he said, "No. I'm the sewing person in the family" So I'm looking forwards to what this talented guy can come up with.
