I want to raise the stock handle bars on my "L". Went to the Honda shop and they really could not find what I was looking for. I want about 2 inches of vertical hight added to the bars. Does anyone know of a web site or store that Carry's something like that. Thanks for the in-put.

Looks a little strange to me but may work for you. Look for snow machine risers, they seem to make them around 2".

Personally, I run Genmar 1" risers with a CR mid bend. The CR bend is much better than stock bars and it is lighter too. The CR bend also comes in a high, which I think is about a 1/2" taller than stock. I am only 6 foot tall so I don't need as much height.

TAG and maybe some others make a CR DOUBLE HI. A buddy of mine with an L got these and likes them ALOT. He's a good 6'3" or 4".

You can also try bars with the "ATV" bend wich is higher than most bike bends.

Thumper Racing adapters.
On mine I kept with 7/8" Alum. bars (not stock lame bend) and the adapter puts the bars (CR hi on mine) about 1.25" higher and 1.5" farther forward. It's far nicer.
The Thumper Racing site might show dimensions.

That link below for the dirbikepro.com ones looks similar to the Thumper Racing ones and definitely less $.

I run the CR/High bend Pro-Tapers with the riser adapters and they raise your hands several inches. Handles and feels 500x better...

If you want to run the stock bend-o-matics or standard size bars, then you can try these risers, http://www.dirtbikep...uct/630-5498219. They also have a riser for oversized bars also.

I have been running the Dirtbike pro risers with oversized TAG CR hi bends for over a year and I LOVE that combo. From when I first got on the bike after I installed 'em I could feel a MAJOR difference in handling and comfort. They were also very easy to deal with and shipped very quickly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I'm 6'2" and I would like to sit up a little more. I am also thinking about making a few small changes to the stock tank that I received from the wonderful T.T.'er Radvocaat :ride: and make it a little larger, when I'm finished I will post the results. I had honestly never thought of snow mobile risers. I have said it before and I will say it again, you guy's (and girls) are the greatest. :thumbsup:
