To the drilling part?
Yes, "regular " H-D handlebar risers are larger in diameter; requiring you to drill out the holes in the top triple tree in order to mount them to a vrod.

Now considering that your stock "A" model handlebars and risers are one piece, here's a thread about changing bars on an "A" model.

That thread states that Fitzgerald was modding the one piece handlebar. If he still does that, you could change without drilling the top tree.

Looks like I might be drilling then. Seems cheapest route just worried about having to replace cables maybe
