    Hi everyone! Just wondering how much of a riser can I put on the bars before I have to start lengthening the cables. Does anyone think 2" will be an issue?

    PowerMadd sells a 1.6" rise. It works without extensions and makes the bike a lot more comfortable. 2" should be possible, you just may need to re-route cables a little bit.

    (double check your bikes measurements with what the description says) https://www.denniskirk.com/powermadd...prd/595502.sku

    There are more expensive options that rise and tilt, but if you don't want to extend the cables I'll assume you are looking for the cheaper option.

    I changed to ATV high bars, they are at least 2" higher and have a better pull back, I used the same bars on my V-Strom 1000, they help alot, the cables fit with some finesse.

    2" Moose racing risers here, cable length not an issue, even with the handguards. Not sure you could go much more than 2 though.

    I also have ATV bars. It was a bit tricky getting my throttle cables sorted out. The cable now run below the handlebar. They work fine but I had to get them just right for proper throttle return. Works great now and what a difference when standing up in the techy trails. The bars had a much thicker wall than the stock bars as well.

    2-inch risers are good. Changing to wider bars at the same time is a no-go.

    I love the taller wider bars, makes it more of a motorcycle than a toy.
