What riser bushings do you recommend?

Hi all, we have a CVO 2011 RGU with 30k miles and I'm noticing some extra slop in the factory bushings

So, time for me to replace them

What have you used? Pluses and minuses?

Thanks in advance!

Get the Arlen Ness Polyurethane bushings, available on Amazon. Stronger and last longer than stock, put them in my 13 RGU.

I have the Alloy Art "Gooden Tite" polyurethane bushings in my 2012 Glide and they work awesome.
Been in for a good four plus years now with no problems.
Best of luck on whichever you choose.

I second Mike U's recommendation. I've been running them 3 years now.

Well I ordered the Arlen Ness and put them on today. So far so good. Way better feel as my stock ones were shot

If you have stock bars you may want to stay with stock bushings, since the polyurethane are firmer and can transfer more vibration, but they can provide better steering input especially on taller bars. On my 91 FXR I had replaced to polyurethane I like the more responsive steering but hated the increased vibration. I did not change back to stock. Just got used to it.

Rob I bought them on Amazon.
If you search Alloy Art Gooden Tite you'll find them.
The ones I bought have Manufacturer Part Number 0602-0006.
Hope this helps.
