I used the fix for getting my pictures back, but it looks like it stopped working.

If the total bow is 64 in. will a 15 in riser be too much? I mocked everything up and it seems like it will leave me with very little working limb. Should I make this riser significantly shorter? (keep in mind the profile is going to come down quite a lot.

It will probably work. I like a longer riser so I can make long, gradual ramps. It's easier to get the bamboo belly to curve around longer ramps. If I have trouble bending the belly lam up the ramps, I will sand the part that will glue to the ramp a little bit thinner.
Make sure you do a dry fit before you commit to a glue up to sort out any problems while you can.
