bar risers! NON GENMAR cable/ hoses?
Written by revconprince on 3/19/2012 at 05:24 pm

I'd like what was on my first Goldwing. It had set back risers. The bar was
behind the rear bolt. The end result about a 1 inch rise with a 1.5 inch set
back.

fiddlin'/hurtin', you're not ridin' right anyway.

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 :)

somehow, but I wouldn't be the one knowin' how to do it :)

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.

      Motion pro makes custom cables and I have used them several times with no complaints. I have used Golfer for custom brake and clutch lines too :) --- In

        Back in the bad times of British Bikes ruling the road, every motorcycle shop had tools and parts for fixing and modifying cables. (I used to work parts in California at a shop that still had some Brit' parts.) I'm guessing those days are lon
