Handlebar fix
Written by mikeyb_houtex on 4/27/2010 at 02:16 am

Just refreshing y'all about the Venture risers I and a couple others used.

Went 1500 miles from houston to Arkansas & Oklahoma and back. So very
comfortable to have them, and still no issues. Love them.

I wouldn't go past 1.5 inches, as the cables start to be an issue... unless you
were to remove some plastic, of course.

Hope that helps!

    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 men

      Hi Leslie, Thanks for the input.. At the moment I'm waiting on the shop manual which will have information and pictures depicting how all the pieces go together.. I think I can raise the bars myself after I secure the riser -I thi

      Hi Leslie, I had a couple spare handlebar clamp caps kicking around in my spare parts cache, and since everybody has been climbing on the riser bandwagon, I thought that I'd give it a try; after all its free and I can easily change it bac
