Handlebar risers.

At the moment I have a generic brand of risers that bring my bars up about 1.25 inches or so. Do any of you have anything that bring up AND back? What about the typical cable and wiring length problems?

Thanks.

Have you looked at the Gen2 risers?

Haven't tried the Gen 2 risers. Are you referring to stock items?

There are riser inserts that do just that and you can generally keep your stock cables.

Yes. The Gen1 handlebars have more rise than the Gen2 bars do, while the Gen2 risers are taller than the Gen1 risers. The handgrips are in nearly the same place on both setups.

I bought a Gen1 handlebar to put on my Gen2, but haven't gotten around to installing it yet.
