Thanks Big Joe,

I ordered my 2" risers yesterday and I'm looking forward to putting them on. The video certainly helps.

Thanks Big Joe,
I see now the way I did it was a little more involved..but I got'er done :bigthumbsup: I'm gonna ride these 2" extentions for a bit, but I'm thinking braided lines and chrome 3". As I said in my earlier review post...these things are great! the change in riding position for smaller riders really gives the bad a break. More importantly, I feel like I can better control the bike...and that is really what it comes down to. Thanks for developing this part and getting it out so quickly!

Devilish :doorag:

Hey Big Joe, your movie is dead on except,.....................it's a 8mm bolt head for the brake manifold, not a 10mm :D :D. Kinda put the cart in front of the horse, I moved the cables today but my risers aren't going to be here till tomorrow. Had time to kill. Good on ya Joe :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:...Jason

How about that! I started moving my cables today too. Ordered the risers yesterday. I'm having a little trouble through. The three things that have to line up to re-install the upper triple tree are off. I think maybe because I tried it with the bike not jacked up. By removing the upper triple tree the lower triple tree was allowed to flex a tiny bit and now the top of the fork tubes are not excatly where they should be. At least thats my theory. I think I should find a jack to borrow.

Does anyone know what I mean?

It was a pain getting the top tree back on. Once I got it started I beat it down with the palm of my hand then used the stem nut to draw it down the rest of the way....Jason

Did you use a jack? My problem is this..... putting the top tree back on the fork tubes start first then slide down a little and get the shaft started. But the shaft is misaligned by a little more than 1/8 inch. No matter how much I pull or twist it won't budge. only other thing i can think of is to try jacking up bike to take the wieght off the forks. Also scared to pull around too much in fear of tip over
