Handlebar Risers
« on: May 15, 2019, 09:00:11 »
Is anyone using handlebar risers if so which ones did you fit and did you need to make any cable/pipe adjustments to enable the bars to move

I think I'd like the bars a little higher and perhaps a little further back. I'm riding a 2018my yellow 1000

I'm not much help here, but it may be worth doing a search as I've seen a number of posts relating to them.  They're often called bar backs too which may help the search.

Some folk seem to have no trouble adding bar backs without new lines, or re-routing cables (see HERE). Others (like myself)get away with a 20mm up riser only (even then I had to move the mirror/brake reservoir bracket across a little).
The commonest issue seems to be length of upper brake hose.
It's annoying, but you have to 'suck it and see' I suppose...

I have recently mounted additional risers of 1cm, I use SHAD saddle as the stock. very improved lapodura and comfort after a long time in the saddle and I find the bike better manageable. No problems with assembly, all cables are OK.

How are you getting on with these risers now after a year?

Nothrian hasn't logged on since last year. Maybe send him a private message?
