'95 Suzuki DR350 handlebar risers

Being 6'-4" tall has its drawbacks. When standing up on the pegs I have to bend over to reach the bars. This causes me to lean over the all ready heavy front end.

Anyone know of handlebar risers for '95 DR350s?

you have a few options:
aftermarket triple top clamps with bolted-risers
taller bars
clamp extensions
make your own extensions
the limiting factor is usually the length of the clutch cable

You made me think of a couple options. Hand't even given a thought to the clutch cable length. Thanks for bringing that up!

Now, I wonder if the risers on my Indian Scout will fit? Hummm...

Have you considered lowering the foot pegs a bit?

Nej. De inte justera. Men jag kommer att söka efter tunnare stövlar. Skojar bara! Min svenska är inte bra. Jag har studerat för en liten stund deltid.

I just ordered Tusk risers. They will raise the bars 30mm. Hope the cables are long enough. The next step will be to find taller bars.

i have 2 dr350s. I have the tusk 30mm risers with pro taper fat bar adapter/risers on top of them. that's close to 2 inches of rise. I also use cr high handlebars. they are not much taller than stock though. I love where that puts the bars for me but I am only 5 10. my stock cables clear that much rise

That's great to hear brownvv!
I was worried about cable length. I was thinking of giving a try with doubled-up risers like you did. That may be the answer if I can't find taller bars.
