i'm not a fabricator so i need bolt on stuff.

a set of mini guages like the ones available for the bonnie would be better.
So, just change the bars and forget risers. That's the simplest bolt on solution. The bars are a standard diameter and there are a million permutations to be purchased at about 40-50 bucks a pop.

There are also a number of speedo relocation mounts available to move a speedo from the riser mount. Some later sportster models have this same issue and many opt for the Joker Machine speedo relocation to the upper fork leg, off to the side and out of the way to clean up the steering head area. There's also a half dozen other speedo mounts on the market. Measure the gauge diameter and check the size for which the mount is intended.
