HELP! Handlebar risers.
on: 17 June, 2020, 04:58:26 PM
Hi All ,

Have a query regarding handlebar risers. I'm after buying risers for my 2009 CBF 1000 GT ABS. (see below link)

https://voigt-mt.de/Voigt-MT-GmbH-Handlebar-risers-30mm-with-offset-21mm-for-Honda-CBF-1000-SC58-06-09-mit-ABE-V3021-riser-clamp-and-conversion

However , I do not have enough slack for the cables. Has anyone encountered this problem before ? And if so could you direct me to the correct website/product where I can buy the necessary cable extenders. I cannot find them anywhere online.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Mike

Hi Mike,

I haven't come across hose extenders. Im not sure i would want to use them . The answer is you need longer hoses. I would get in touch with HEL , go to the contact page and ring them up and tell them what it is you want. They will make them for you in whatever colour you want. .

They do lost of standard replacement hoses , just tell them you need them 50 mm longer or however much longer you want  as you have fitted bar risers.

Regards,
Nat.

When I was first looking at Handlebar Risers I ordered some a bit like this, up and back type. But after ordering, reading a few posts on here I realised it was going to cause a lot of myther! I got in touch with the supplier and just got 25mm straight forward Risers. These fitted my mk2 fine, but anymore than 25mm I think would’ve caused issues! Think I only paid around £25-27 if I remember correctly.

Hi Mike
Just in  case you are not aware the handlebar mountings on
the mk1 are adjustable backwards and forwards by  i believe turning the
the bottom post around. if it is already set to the rear if turned round
to the front you may gain a bit of slack if your lucky.

I did have the same problem on my CBF1000F SC64
I solved it Quick-and-dirty way.
Just re-routed the cables and hoses outside the front-legs.
Wiring needs to go over the steering forwards.
Looks less nice, but works.

Just to much effort to replace everything, because you would need to exchange Hydrolic hoses of clutch and brake, but also throttle cables and even the electrical wiring that goes to your switches left and right.

This bike really has lot been layed out for raisers.

Greez,
Moh
