    best bar risers ?

    I would like to get some bar risers . What are the best that give you at least 1" or 2 " would be best ? I would like to not have to change throttle cables and controls. Thanks

    I made my own. If you have a machinist type friend, he should be able to whip something up for little cost if he has access to some scrap metal.

    I went with 0.6 in. It was enough for me. 1.2 in. would be O. K. But anymore I'd switch to Pro Taper bars. I might anyways.

    That's really what I would like but I don't know any machinist. Did you have to lenghthen your controls and how much rise does yours have ?

    Ok so if I went with pro taper bars from pro cycle instead of risers would I have to change controls and cables ?

    Best is subjective depending on what criterion(s) you value most. Lowest price, most versatile, best quality,Black, polished or satin aluminum finish? Certainly all the commercial 2" risers seem to work with stock cable lengths with sometimes a little re-routing required depending on hand guard installation. There are a few styles that can be rotated to change fore and aft location of the bars. I would suggest you peruse multiple listings on Amazon for handlebar risers to get familiar with prices and styles that suit you.

    If I remember, it was about 1.5 inches up and 1.5 inches forward, stock cables.

    Even with ProTaper bars, I was able to get in another 1 1/2 in risers too without much difficulty.

    I installed the Tusk brand ATV Sport Bend bars (highest bend they make) and wanted more rise so I also installed their 30mm risers. Perfect now. I'm 5'10" and can stand comfortably now. Available at Rocky Mountain ATV site.

    Risers - $19.99 https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...Risers?v=10246
