MBL handlebar risers

Post by Ech929 » Thu Aug 08, 2013 9:07 pm



Installed the MBL Model 1803S(up, back, and in) yesterday. The instructions were a bit lacking with regard to dis-assembly. Soooo, if you decide to do this yourself, here's some advise from someone that just did it yesterday afternoon. When it say take out the dash metering panel and fork cover, do yourself a favor and take the instrument cluster loose too. I finally had to take mine loose in order to get the screws back into the fork cover (after modifying it to a greater degree than indicated in the instructions). We rode 260 miles today. With the new Throttle Boss and the MBL mod, I was extremely comfortable leaning back against the drive backrest and the paddle on the throttle handle was great. Great Ride! :D

ech929, Hi, I'm considering installing the MBL risers to my 2008 Honda trike. Was it hard to install ? are the instructions easy to follow ? I've done minor work on the bikes I have owned. I'm retired so I will have plenty of time. Read your comment so I'm asking.

His post was 2013, might be a while.

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

I've looked into rising mine but the cables are the drawback. Rerouting is extremely tricky unless you're buying custom made one's.
I rebent mine and SO GLAD I did, wrists don't hurt now but the levers hit the shield. EH, tradeoffs.
As I look to custom adjust 'x', I find how well the 1500 was designed overall.
