handle bar risers

Post by fanman7 » Sat Dec 25, 2010 2:10 am

I recently been looking at handle bar risers that raise the bars up and closer to you about an inch to a inch and a half.
My question is if you install these do you have to change out any cables or brake lines to accomodate the risers.

A freind of mine has a 2010, put handle bar risers on his bike and did not have to change the cables or hoses.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Puy them on my 06 this past year, easy to do and didn't have to change a thing.

I have them as the K's were too much money even though they were adjustable (the K's )
Good Luck, safe riding

I had a set on my 2001 GL1800. They do help to relieve back pain and you can adjust them to bring the hand grips closer to you.
You don't need to change anything, cables or wires, you do need to remove the black plastic cover that covers the handlebar connection at the triple tree. On the 2001 it would contact the bottom of the meter panel when you turned the handlebars all the way to the stop. I did not like that. I removed them.
I had the Kuryakyn brand but would not recommend anything from Kuryakyn because of the junk they sell, and they will not stand behind their products.
See my posts on Kuryakyn Chrome on this board and the GWRRA Board.

I have an ongoing campaign to let everyone know what kind of company Kuryakyn is. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate them at maybe 3. Customer service is poor and products are even worse. The only reason I purchased Kuryakyn stuff was it looked good, but after only 13 or 14 months the chrome started to bubble. Kuryakyn said it was over a year old so they would not do anything.
