    Cables long enough?

    I am considering getting some 1.2" handle bar risers on eBay. Wondering if the cables are long enough to handle this height? Also considering higher bars. Wonder how high I can go w/o needing new cables?

    Pro Taper bars work well. 1.2 risers would be no problem. I used 2 inch risers.

    ^^^^ ditto to what littletommy and Ebbanflood have. 2" risers, no issues with oem cables.
