|Subject: 4" Chrome Riser Install on C800..........................By Mistress K Tue Jan 03, 2012 7:53 pm|| |
Thread reproduced with the express permission of Mistress K4" Chrome Risers I chose the show chrome 4" square cast solid risers with the appropriate hardware (2 bolts) for my bike
Time: 20 minutes
Torque wrench, 19mm socket, 5mm hex socket
Coat the new bolts with thread lock, and slide through the triple tree clamp from the bottom, using the washers you saved from removing the stock risers (you did save them, right?).
Thread finger tight into the bottoms of the new risers, and tighten down but not so much they begin to turn the riser body.
Have your helper place the bars in the tops of the new risers but don't worry too much about bar positioning yet.
Install the riser caps using the 5mm hex socket (size may vary with different risers), tightening only enough so that the handlebars do not move when your helper lets go of them (use care when checking whether or not you've got a bite!).
Next proceed to torque down the riser bolts from the bottom of the triple tree clamp to 50 foot-pounds. now sit on your bike, and have your helper loosen the cap bolts until the bars move and position to your liking.
Then torque down the riser cap bolts until there is no longer any space between the riser body and the riser cap.
Longer risers with more pullback may require the installation of longer cables on the front end!
Research is your friend here!
The view from the saddle has definitely improved!
The more I look at this pic, the more I think the risers are a little bit cock eyed. Might have to fix that tonight!
Is it just me, or is she getting just a little sexier every day?
I think you can tell how I feel about my new mod
