Riser bushings install questions

Replacing the riser bushings on my 2012 road glide. I don’t have a socket big enough to fit the center bolt, what is the size? Also what are the torque specs on all the triple tree and riser bushings bolts for when I go to put it back together

You don't have to
remove triple tree to replace risers. 3/4 inch wrench after you get guages out of way.

Requires a 3/4" socket.

More work doesn't always make the whole job easier but sometimes it may. All you needed to do was get a long extension and a wobble socket and turn the bars all the way left to get the right bolt out then turn the bars to the right to get the left bolt out. Do the same thing to put them back in. I've even done it leaving the handle bars in the riser clamps but had an extra pair of hands helping hold things for that. Whatever works best for you though but now that you've done it that way and have seen things I bet you can do it without removing the top triple tree next time.

Now you get to do the neck bearing adjustment when you put it all back together. That should be fun.
