It's a bit hard to identify which Schwinn you're talking about, and they've used different stems over the year. But what looks like the most likely candidate has a threadless stem/fork, and those aren't as adjustable as the old quill stems.

What you probably have to do is to get another stem, either one called a riser stem, or an adjustable stem. They're fairly easy to put on, but you do need to get one for the right steerer tube/handle bar size. And you also need to know how to set the bearing preload, as this will go right out the window when you remove the old stem.

You can't adjust the handlebar height without buying some extra parts. Specifically, you need to buy a threadless stem extender / riser. Any decent local bike store will carry them.

My mom has tourist visa should she enter US with tourist visa and then apply for immigration visa What is a better approachprocedure?

On what basis would she be able to adjust status once in the U.S.? Of course she shouldn't do this. If immigration officials even *think she entered the U.S. on a tourist visa with the intention of immigrating, she'll never adjust status. It's never advisable to enter the U.S. on a tourist visa with the intent of immigrating.

How do you adjust v star 1300 handlebars?

Remove the allen-head bolts holding the speedo cover on, underneath that you'll find the larger bolts that give access to the handlebar clamps. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HOLD ON TO THE HANDLEBAR WHEN YOU LOOSEN THE CLAMPS! Otherwise the bars will fall and you will dent your tank. I would recommend putting a folded towel on the tank to protect it, just in case.

How do you adjust handlebars on 2003 road king?

It's more complicated than it looks. The problem is that the handlebar clamp cover obscures the four clamp bolts but the clamp cover can't be removed without first popping off the little plastic cover on the fork lock keyhole, unscrewing the three Phillips head screws beneath it, then removing the headlight trim ring and headlight bucket, then unscrewing the two speed nuts that hold the top "spear" to the nacelle, thereby freeing the handlebar clamp cover.

Yes, in fact that is the way it has to be. A tourist visa is not supposed to be used to adjust to green card holder. Can it be done? Yes, but it is basically fraud because the person entering the country doesnt want to leave the country. In your case, your spouse will have to go through the U.S. embassy in the foreign country.
