I have just finished installing my chrome Rivco risers.
They feel great, (I am 6-2), and they look great. The Rivco risers in my opinion look much better than the aluminum stock risers.
It was not a quick bolting job as it initially appears. The re-routing of the clutch cable and the dismantling and re-installing of the throttle housing is what took the time. But it was worth it.

Best Wishes.

Pics pics pics :) I'm going back and forth on what risers to get. I'm only 5'7" so I need something that makes the reach a little shorter.

I just installed the same risers on mine too. I love them, the ride is so much more comfortable. The only thing that I had to do as far as my cables was that I had to unbolt the mounting block behind the headlight that holds the front brake T-block that is mounted to the top triple tree.

I think the op has the factory cables, yours appear to be the plus three. on a side note I will be installing my 3 inch riser extensions soon so all this info is good stuff. thanks guys for posting.

well, it worked for me at least. I just followed Big Joes 2" riser vid on u2b:joke:,
the line went under the tree with the others, BUT, I don't like it bcuz the cables rub on the front of the tank when it's full lock in either direction. Eventually it'll rub through the paint :-\ .... wait .... might get a new paint job outta this!! lol :joke: ' werkin' it!
