bar risers! NON GENMAR cable/ hoses?
Written by rocker8585 on 3/17/2012 at 10:57 pm

update ! I am fabbing up a mount for the non pc riser that i ordered from scoot
works and the owner who i must say was super nice and helpful said the riser i
am going with with be able to use stock everything just by re routing all cables
behind the bars. so i am diving into it. oh and to the people questioning this
move, I have short arms and a back rest i want to really utilize. and I am not a
cruiser guy any more i am a PC rider! so i am going to customize it to do
everything i want. haha and how many cruisers can you put as much sheeeeeeet as
you can put in our bikes? I can't think of any, and i love owning a bike no one
has ever heard of in the general public :) haha if that doesn't answer your
question i am not sure what will :)

to worry about, so they can just dangle wherever makes sense. Fashion up some
sprung/bungy retainers or such to let them 'shift' a little if needed, but stay
'not caught' on any thing.

make your own cables. I doubt there's anything available for this kind of
modification that you can just buy. You might can extend the cables/hoses
somehow, but I wouldn't be the one knowin' how to do it :)

this is highly different, yeah? :)

i want more. I had a 650 vstar before and i got the scoot works risers they had
and it was a 3" pull back and i really liked them. But i think what i am trying
to accomplish is getting the sport touring bike to feel like a cruiser. so i am
thinking of fabbing up a mounting plate so i can take a standard set of risers
that have the single mounting stud and use them for the pc.

appreciated or even a website that sells them/ a member that does this kind of
work would be appreciated :) and or can i make my own hoses?
