wanted: tips on bar mods for tall rider
Posted August 12, 2000 - 08:36 PM
I have several questions.
1. Who makes a good bar elevator (I don't know the correct name for this)?
2. How high should I raise the bar?
3. Do these things make the wr easier to handle?
4. Are there devices that both raise the bar and move it forward (without having to spend a ton of cash) or should I just rotate the bar?
Thanks...love the forum.

I'm 6'4" and run an Applied Racing top triple clamp that moves the bar mounts 10mm forward from the stock '99 position. The Applied clamp uses bolt on bar mounts. I run the Thumper Racing +1" (forward & up) bar risers. I just bought the +1.5" risers so I can run the Scotts dampener. The +1" risers are good - the +1.5" will be better. You may be able to get away with the Applied Racing +10mm bar mounts - they are reversible so you can run them +13mm or +7mm farther forward from stock for the '99.
I have a brand new pair of +10mm Applied bar mounts that came with my triple clamp. If you can buy just the clamp I'd be willing to make you a good deal on the bar mounts.

Thumper does make bar risers that bolt onto the STOCK WR triple clamp - Give them a call.
