    Standing up was a bit difficult with the stock bars, so I upgraded.



    New parts:



    • Tusk Handlebar Riser Kit 7/8" Bars, 30mm Height
    • Renthal Rider 7/8" Handlebar Jimmy Button Bend
    • Pro-Taper Pillow Top MX Grips




    The risers and bars went on easily. All of the cables fit perfectly.



    The most difficult and time consuming part was getting the grips onto the bars (I'm sure there is some magic method that I was too lazy to Google).



    Here are some pics of the finished product:

    The ram mount is SOLID. I use it on my atv, truck, and bicycles also. I've never had any problems with it coming loose or anything from vibrations. It has even survived crashes on the mountain bike and my phone never fell out of the x-grip.

    Unscented. Spray into the grip, slid it on, allow time to dry (about 10 minutes), ride.
