Handle Bar Risers/Extension
« on: April 11, 2021, 00:49:22 AM »
I was considering Handle Bar Riser/spacers or maybe a series of washers. 

Does anyone have experience on how large of a riser spacer you can go, before you need to extend your cables?

I did 2" risers on my 800 with no issue using the OEM length cables.

I went with 1" risers on ma-deuce, and no problems at all with the OEM cables.
I love my swingin' bike!

I have Phat risers on mine - I think they're 4"  They put the handlebars where they are comfortable for me.   The cables all reached fine, but I think they're at about the limit.

One of our Drifters came with 4" risers, there was some rerouting of the stock cables.
We've always been car crazy.  We've always been bike crazy.  Most people agree we're just plain crazy.
