Handlebar Riser

Has anybody out there installed handlebar risers on their Rebel?

I think that a slight height and "move-back-a-bit" of the handlebars might improve the ride for me.

I installed 4" dog bone risers with drag bars. I'm happy with the way it came out. here is a pic of the risers.

you had to install new wiring, or have kept the original size?

I didn't have to shorten or lengthen any of the cables.

I'll make the small ape hanger for mine. then say what was necessary to increase. I hope it does not take anything. then insert pictures.

I think you can have a tall as 10" apes and still use stock cables. You may need to lengthen the electrical wires but I'm not certain.

Thank you nmonty!!!
I was going to buy handlebars and swap everything out. Bought these instead, and they fit like a dream with my stock bars. I didn't have to extend anything either - though the wiring is pushing the limits. I love the adjustability of them! And it is all your fault.




Note: The clutch cable looks really tight, but it isn't. I just hadn't tied it up yet.

If you have to reroute cables and wires to the other side of the forks to make them reach with 4: dogbone risers, how do you do it? Any tricks, pitfalls, techniques to disconnect and reconnect (Brake, throttle, clutch, etc.) Would lifting off the top of the forks (triple tree?) be straight forward; lift and put back with cables on the inside?
