9 posts in this topic

Has anyone added risers to their bars & did you have any difficulty with the length of any of the cables.

How big of Risers? i put the Universal Fatbar clamp on mine and that lifted it up a little, but i didn't have any problems with it (1991 dr250s)

I have 1" Rox Risers and they work pretty well with my Renthal CR High Bend Bars, I did not have to lengthen any cables and it will work, just make sure you tighten them very well.

I have bar-backs on my DR and loved them until I put the Safari tank on it. The bar-backs raise the handle bars an inch and move them back an inch toward the rider giving a more comfortable position. The Safari tank doesn't allow enough room for full turning radius with them though so I will be selling them after I get some vertical risers. Anyway, even with my bar-backs there is plenty of cable length. If anyone has a set of verticals they would like to trade for the bar-backs let me know.

I have Rox risers sold by Power Madd. They are 2 inches high. I had to go with them because of my Parabellum windshield mount. The cables are at the limit but do not bind. In the future I will get longer cables when needed. I got them at Dennis Kirk. They are over price in my opinion. Like 80 dollars.

That's what I have, I may have to re-route the clutch cable for more room.

Is a Sun. project when I tackle installing the IMS tanks as well. Wish me luck.

I have 1-2" rox riser install presented no problems for 05dr650, no binding, no cable issues, this was a great install as I am 6'3" and use the stock bars still, the rox I have basically have two pivot points now, so it can have very minute adjustment if needed, big help standing, have spitfire windshield too, but not a problem, running ims tank/corbin combo just to let you know how I sit in the dirt sometimes, but still love the risers...just wish they were black (mine are aluminum polished?) also, I have taken some dirt spills with them and haven't had any adjustment or breakage...don't remember the price though, as I got these back in 10/2005...hope this helps:ride:

Yes, I do! I added the Rox elite anti-vibration risers with a set of ProTaper SE KX High bars. With everything positioned to my comfort, my throttle cables are maxxed out - especially with the bars turned to the right. The clutch cable is not as tight, but another inch or two in length would be nice.

Does anyone know of a source for longer throttle or clutch cables? I've searched, but come up with nothing.
