    Either that or relocate the cables behind the triple tree.

    I was thinking about going with the 2 inchers until I heard about having to mess with the cables. Then I was thinking about going with the 1 inchers so I didn't have to mess with the cables, but now I'm wondering if they make enough of a difference to even bother with them.

    I'm headed for 2" longer chrome risers, and i'm replacing all cables. Have been doing it slowly have clutch cable done and push/pulls replaced with new grips. Very easy job! Front brake lines are next! Once thats done i'll be ready for risers. All my cables/lines I went 3" longer and all stainless steel, and they look way better than the black stock ones.
    My opinion is I'm only going to do this Once, and i want to do it right. I know doing it all at once will get pricy so I've been pacing myself if you will! Can't wait really to reduce my forword lean, not that it's much but the thought of setting basicly straight up will be the BALLS as far as comfort. And at the same time will LOOK GREAT!! I've seen the 2" extension pieces but IMO tacky!! {but 2 eachs own.} And they cost around 90 dollars and for another 90 you have full chrome 2" longer risers. Again yea it's more money, but pace yourself you'l be glad in the long run you did. GOD KNOWS I WILL.

    I rode around for a while just to see if I would get use to the riding position before changing anything. I was getting a little sore at the base of my neck in between my shoulder blades on longer rides. Put 1 inch risers blocks on and have not had a problem since. I too have been thinking about trying 2 inch blocks. Had to cut the bracket under the lower triple tree to give the clutch cable a little mor freedom, otherwise all good.

    You had to cut the bracket for the 1 inchers? Wow! That's one tight clutch cable!

    Was the quickest and easiest way to free the cable. Have spoken to others that have done the same thing.

    Was only getting tight if going full lock.

    I ran mine with stock cables for a few months, but at full left lock the cables touched the speedometer housing and I didn't care for that. I think you could probably zip tie them out of the way and stop it, but I changed to the longer cables anyway.


    Life has no remote control, get up and change it yourself.

    Which size risers did you use?
