    How much Play with Arlen Ness Poly Bushings

    I just did a complete install of 14" LA Chopper Twin Peaks on my 2015 Streetglide Special. Did not have to replace the cables which saved some time an money. I did replace the stock riser bushings with Arlen Ness Poly's. I get about 1/4" to 1/2" of play when I really push and pull on them.

    First Question: Is this normal play for 14" Ape Hangers and Poly bushings

    second Question: I did not replace the stock riser bolts. Should I?

    Thanks guys.

    I just installed 14's and also get some play in the bars. I replaced with poly bushing from the dealership, but I'm guessing they are pretty much the same thing in a different package. I would think the bolts would be fine as long as they are tight.

    When i installed my bars in used the poly bushings. i saw where someone torqued to specs. Then waited 20 minutes and torqued them again. That is what i did, and they are rock solid 4000 miles later no issues. (i saw this old post, but thought someone may find it useful.)
