Thread: Raising the "BARS"

  1. #1
    I'm over 6' tall and would like to raise the bars on my XB12s at least 2". It looks as though there's not much EXTRA in the wiring or cables. Was wondering if anyone has raised the bars and how much before I have to rewire the thing. AND does anyone know a part # for longer cables ie: will extended sporster cables work

    I don't know if sporty cables will work, but Uly cables will. Unfortunately I do not have the part #.

    Uly cables are significantly longer than the S cables. But, depending on what type of bars or risers, your stock cables may work just fine. I have some risers (fat bar conversion) on mine, and kept the stock cables--my bars are wider as well, and still there is plenty of cable for it. Your best bet is to find bars or risers you like, then see if it will work.

    You can go 2" with stock bars.. Here's 1" with much wider bars..

    I haven't taken the bars off yet, I've been told theres a dowel pin in the switches, and that most people just "break" it off. ???????

    Yea, I filed mine down or you can drill a little hole... It clamps on very tight, no need for that pin. I have a break line. Just can't see it in the pic.

    Yes. My Scg line was more than long enough for SS forks AND the riser/fat bars.
