Handlebar fix
Written by ltaylorba on 4/26/2010 at 03:07 pm

Hi Stan,

I'm 5'5" (barely) and had my handlebars raised about a year ago by a local
Honda/Goldwing shop. They did a great job and it really helped. I'll have to
check my records for info on the riser itself, but one thing not yet mentioned
is that when you have the handlebars raised, you have an issue w/the key! (This
is mentioned in older postings, though.)

For a while, I used a keyring that had a "globe" bobble on it, to be sure the
ring didn't fall through the hole in the handlebar cover. For a Christmas
present, my husband fashioned a new "cap" for the key, such that it stuck up
nicely and was easy to insert and remove. It's so cool looking! I'll post
pictures later today. But you'll need to have some way to extend the length of
the key when you raise the bars.

Best of luck! ...Leslie

under a bit of stress.. Are there any fixes for this problem?
