They do NOT cover up the indicator lights.  That was one of the more appealing features of this polished (not Chromed) accessory.  The risers are actually slightly cut-out to accommodate the indicator lights with a custom look.

Those risers look great, much nicer that the stock ones. I would like to move my handlebars back toward me a little more but not certain I have enough cable/brake line, etc. to move even an inch. I put on a set of  Harley Heritage bars and they really help however I could use another couple inches but the cables are about maxed out, especially my brake line. Don't relish the idea of swapping out all the lines/cables.

Ummmm, is that a Valkyrie engine in the background?

Those Valk engines have that look you don't forget, they have that "I'm the boss" look, you can almost see the power dripping out of them!

I had the same problem as you. This was the mod that I made to help alleviate the strain, and they worked very well with no handling issues. These are HD Deuce risers that I picked up from ebay. Since the stud bolts of the risers are SAE, and the stud bolt holes of the T was metric, I had 2 hi-grade 1/2" diam. steel bolts turned down to 12mm an re-threaded to adapt the risers to the T's triple tree. These offered a little more pull back vs. rise and that's what I needed the most.

I've also upgraded my risers.  Thought I'd show the pictures here to keep them all on the same place for folks.  Came back from my last long trip with some pain in my elbows, so I thought I'd play around with not reaching out so far.  Went with the squared off, billet risers that match the Cobra light bar pretty well.  Decreased the reach by two inches.  That might be more than necessary, but it feels good for now.

I tried those risers too but they were flexing too much since the mounts are rubber mounted.

Did you see the same issue ? If yes, how did you fix it ?

There is a little bit of flex, but it doesn't bother me or I got used to it.  I like the vibration dampening of the rubber mounts, so I didn't consider it an issue.  Depends what you're used to and your riding style.
