Installed a new BlackPath 1" bar risers
I had ordered the BlackPath 1" bar risers on Ebay for about $50.
I would have loved the higher dollar bar risers...but...these were priced right for me.
They come with a set of instructions that need a lot to be desired, but overall the install was pretty easy.
A couple of thoughts if anyone else does it.
1. It says that it is preferable to leave bike on side stand so that you can check the fit easier. DO NOT DO THIS. Getting the triple tree back on was a pain in the rear. I finally decided to put it on the center stand to get some weight off the front tire. It is not that easy to do with no handlebar to grab onto. Would have been much easier if I had done this before taking off the handle bars. Once I got it on the center stand, the triple tree went on super easy.
2. The directions are not really clear about this, but the factory handle bars have a stud with a bolt on top that adjusts when you move the handle bars forward and back. This stud is built into a carrier that is under the triple tree. The second bolt drops in from the top into a bolt that is also part of this carrier. All of this goes away and is replaced by 2 bolts and 2 nuts. Once I realized this, the process went really quick.
The only bad thing, you can not put the caps back on over the bolt heads on the handlebars. Not end of the world...but not as finished as before. I do sit up noticeably more straight. Now, I need to relax my shoulders when I ride. Also...it puts my head a little further above the windshield...so that becomes the next project.
