Two of my friends with GenII sleds have bent the steering post more than once... is the design really that weak? Both of them have big risers on the bars, like 6" or more, but I believe both of them managed to do it even without the riser... I'm curious because the 00' 600XC I'm riding really needs a riser, but I'm kinda scared that I will end up with the same headache. I'm definately not as agressive of a riser, but the stock bars are really too low for much stand-up riding.. ( I'm 5'11", probably over 6' with my boots on.) IF I do raise the bars it will be 2", 3" tops.
