Hey folks, 
What's the max height u can get away with without worrying about cable extensions?
If found a cool set of bars with the measurements 560mm wide, Rise is 210mm Bar Diameter 27mm approx.
Would this be to much?


Cheers
Dj

Bikes vary - release bars with 4 bolts and see how much you have. About 10" I would guess.

II've put Aeromach risers on mine and they raise the standard bars 40mm and pull back 45mm. I've had to remove the cable guide but the clutch and brake cables are ok and I've had to move the throttle cables to the inside of the yoke. Any more up or back and I would have needed new cables all round.

I went with flat drags - 34" wide, 6.5" pullback.  Sat them on 3" risers - standard cables fitted fine.  Handles much better as well

Cheers Dave. I'm thinking of getting the bars and just seeing. If they don't fit I will just have to re-home them. 

Ps. That's a sweet ride!

Other tricks include re routing clutch cable and easing the electrics out of the hole in headlamp. Going the other side of the yoke has already been mentioned. These avoid having to cut wires or buy new cables. Where there is a will there is often a way. Best of luck!
