Those do look good :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: I have been waiting for these, how and where did you get them? I can not find them on any web site.
Do you feel the 2" is enough or would the 3" maybe of been a better choice. I am only 5'10" so I was debating between the 2" or 3". :dontknow: :read: :dontknow:

RLS, I am 5'10" also and got all the relief I needed just by rotating my bars up a couple of inches. You might try it if you haven't already. :bigthumbsup:

Took about 30 minutes to install. Fit and finish is a 9.5 out of 10. Cost $99.00. The ride that I now have......PRICELESS.

One of the best mods for people 6' 1" or taller.

Cheers,

The first 4 photos are with the risers.

I think you do need to consider your height as the taller you are, the further away you will be from the bars. But also your sleeve length comes into play. I have a sleeve length of 35" and I am just a little bent over to the bars.

prozac123, I appreciate the idea about the handlebars being turned up, I have done that and still need to have them closer.

Then mine must be 37. I have long arms, I know the length ends in a 7... I looked at my arm and said no way is it a yard long... I forgot the measurement starts in your back, not your shoulder.
So far I feel good, but I would love to sit behind some bars with the risers.

So you didn't need to change out your cables at all....you haven't noticed that they're a little too tight?

For the 2" risers you have to run the clutch and the throttle cables behind the upper tripple tree. Not that big of a deal. It allows for just enough room on full left/right rotation. The 3" risers require replacement of the cables.

Haven't done the hypercharger yet. I'm holding off to see if Kuryakyn is going to make a "proper" fit unit. It should be pretty easy. But it will look like this:

Just placed an order for the 3" risers and cables to go with it.

Should have it this week sometime. Will post pics and update when installed.

Can you give some more detail about this? Do the cables have to be disconnected from the levers so they can be run behind the triple tree?
