Bar Risers

What bar risers have people installed and have there been any cable issues?

Very interested in this also.

Saw a GS on Saturday with risers bringing his bars back to him a few CMs.

The Rox Pro-Offset risers work fine. They can either be mounted to raise the bars up an inch, or up an inch and back an inch.

I fitted touratech 20mm risers.. no cable issues, tilted the bars forward a bit and removed the rubber from the footpegs (got to say the standard footpegs are very poor (Honda must have had some 1980's footpegs they wanted to get rid of, as im sure they were the same as a MT50 i had many years ago....will be the next thing to change!!) now bike feels a lot more comfy... and a little lighter maybe!!

What I have noticed though is the main handlebar clamps are fitted with a rubber mount/washer!! (must be there to reduce vibration) there is a fair amount of movement if you push/pull the handlebars forward and backwards.... wouldn't want to go more than 20mm as this will probably increase even more!!

I took them off soon after. Didn't like the feel of the higher bars while seated and after hearing what Chris Birch said about risers (throw them away), I didn't think they'd improve my offroading either.

If you're interested in Birchy's thoughts on the right standing position, check out the last paragraph in this post:

Just rolling the bars forward a bit made things much more comfy for me when standing off-road. Steering feels a bit more direct with my hands more in line with the rake angle.

Height while wearing MX boots is about 1.85 metres.

As much as i respect Chris and his riding skills i have to disagree on this with him , how can it be the same for two riders that are let's say 5"1 and the other one 6"9 to ride identical bike ? IT IS NOT ! one stands up nice and straight and the tall rider is bent over in a awkward position . there is a reason why there are so many aftermarket parts aviable to fine tune the ergonomics to match your size and shape as we are not all the same but the bikes only come in one size .
So i am getting bar risers and some decent footpegs .
