    No problem, I'm happy to help when I can, I'm glad you asked for clarification, it's better then assuming.

    Follow-up; got the risers installed. I worry a bit about the brake line that goes from the master cylinder to the ABS modulator. It is now extracted from its grommet/holding clamp to get some loose but when I turn the bars to the far left, the hose gets stuck up against the top triple clamp and seems to be very slightly compressed. Because of this, I can't recline the handlebars towards me as much as I wish. 1.2" is the very maximum raise with a 2015 750X ABS manual transmission unless I re-route the brake line behind the top triple clamp. Anybody ever did this?

    I left my line in the clamp but loosened the mounting bolt and changed the angle from a 90 to mostly facing upward (almost straight up but not quite, 20-25 or so) and that freed up enough room for me.

    As long as it's not rubbing, vibrating against something, getting pinched or being yanked on, I think it should be fine.

    If I'm wrong someone please correct me

    It’s worth nothing, that hose routing on the standard brakes is different from the ABS brakes. Standard brake hose goes straight to the caliper, while on the ABS, it goes from the master cylinder to the ABS modulator.

    Yeah I'm annoyed that the U.S. didn't get ABS on the manual version (at least as an option) so that is different on my NC
