Looking to put a 2 inch riser on my 07 CF8SP. Will I have to lengthen the cables?

Thank you.

It will fit right on with no cable mods. Just get one from the dealer for a ZR900 and your good to go. They are 2"s right on. It was perfect on my M and I am 5'11"s tall. It will make the sled alot harder to turn.[/b]
Harder to turn? Please explain?

I have never heard anybody say a sled is harder to turn when a riser is added. With the handlebars higher it makes it easer to turn in my opinion.

driveumhard you can put our 4" on that sled with no mods.

I think when saying harder to turn they are saying your arms are much more bent at the elbow with taller risers. Less leverage coming from your arms.

Thank You - Exactly

My wife says the same thing every time she drives my Crossfire 7 - She is a little thing and she always complains about how hard it is to steer in the twisties SITTING DOWN TURNING - Fatigue or tired arms

I notice the same thing sometimes after a long day of sitting down riding in the twisties/woods

Standing up with the riser is another story - SWEET

This is why I like this forum, I never thought of that angle before. Thanks for the input.

Same exact situation here. If it was MY sled I'd have a 2" ole riser. Since it's hers and even with the stock riser gets a little tiring for her to turn I get to ride the Crossfire some of the time. Maybe I should put the riser on so I get to ride it all the time :) That would go over real well....not.
