I just bought the sportech 3" ABR and it should be here tomorrow and I plan on installing it Saturday.Any advice on which riser manufacturer is best? Also, what is the maximum allowed rise without extending cables? Any advice is appreciated.
I've been looking at the Powermadd and Sporttech models so far. Thanks.[/b]
i had a 2 inch non-pivot and didnt need to extend or re-route everything. now i hav a powermadd pivot adaptor and a 4 inch pwermadd block and pro-x bars total of almost 6 inches and i needed a longer brake line (powermadd makes these as well) and i re-routed the throttle cable. u can get enough extra room by re-routing the throttle cable and i also heard that if u straighten out the brake line (down by caliper it turns to a pre-bent metal line) u can also make it work. i figured better safe then sorry and bought both extensions used one and sold the other. goodluck (also if u change out brake line be sure to bleed the new line)I just bought the sportech 3" ABR and it should be here tomorrow and I plan on installing it Saturday.
I did a lot of checking on this and it is safe to say the 3" will work with stock cables.
I am 6-3 and I plan on pushing the bars up and forward.
I guess some of the cables may need to be re-routed. I'll know better saturday.
I plan on taking a bunch of pictures for my website of the installation as well as the 96 studs I am putting in.[/b]
thanks, going to put it on tomorrow and then take it for a ride. I can't wait.Lucky's04,
Thanks for the input and please let me know how the install goes this weekend. I would like to do the 3" as well, but I'd rather not extend the cables.
By the way, nice web site too![/b]
Thats a dang nice looking setup i have to say. Looks stronger than the separate links (non-continuous bottom bar). I might have to get me one of those!thanks, going to put it on tomorrow and then take it for a ride. I can't wait.
take a look at the riser. I even polished it a little more.
It is the Sportech 3" ABR[/b]
I installed the 3' Sportech ABR riser over the weekendThats a dang nice looking setup i have to say. Looks stronger than the separate links (non-continuous bottom bar). I might have to get me one of those!
Only thing i think i would change is to put int some nice grade 8 bolts. Are they stainless steel? That grade crap wouldnt work in my head so G8 would go in.[/b]
Thanks for the info and the pics! I plan on doing this very soon, and I may go for the 3" rather than the 2" now.I installed the 3' Sportech ABR riser over the weekend
and what a difference it made.
I am 6'-3" and it is so much more comfortable to ride now.
I can stand up with no problem.
I had no problems with the throttle cable or the brake line reaching.
In fact, I'll bet you could go higher.
I made a page on my website showing the details and how I covered the gap between the stock cover and the cowl.
