    1.2" Riser on a 2015 750X manual transmission (Canadian model)

    I'm thinking to get these:

    Anybody done this? Do you think cables are long enough?

    The cables and brake hose on the manual transmission model seem to work well with risers up to 2 inches. However, my experience was with a standard braking system, whereas you probably have ABS. At only 1.2 inch rise, you should be OK.

    Skookum, my 2015 with DCT and ABS has a set of 1.5" Rox risers installed. I had to "loosen things up" by undoing some factory mounting stuff - I think there was a grommet holding a brake line IIRC - but the 1.2" should be no problem.

    Dan I have a set of 1.5" silver ones (unbranded) if you want them. I'll be in Montreal over the weekend if you want to drop by (close to chinatown/old montreal).
    Shoot me a pm.

    I have the same risers (but silver) installed on my NC, between that and pulling the handlebars towards me a little it was a big improvement.
    for me there was no extra work involved, I took off the 4 bolts, plate, lifted the bars, inserted risers below the bar, double check everything is centered, reinstall the bolts and get the angle of the bars perfect before actually tightening them up completely

    Thanks Harvey, very kind of you. This specific model is what I want as it is compatible with my custom GPS set-up. Moreover, I prefer to get a reasonable 1.2" (I was looking at 1") and have them black. Hope you'll have a nice week-end in Montreal. Beware of traffic congestion. Waze is your friend.

    No problem. I'm more worried about melting in my suit (neice's wedding).

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. The riser + pulling the handlebars towards me a little both contributes to the improvement? Or pulling the handlebars towards me a little was a big improvement compared to the riser?

    Can you clarify?

    Both, the riser helped and the pulling the bars closer towards me helped.

    Install the risers and then find the most comfortable angle (for you) just make sure your bars still clear everything
