I just raised the bars about 1 1/2" using the Fastway steering damper sub-mount. If you ever think you may want a steering damper, think about getting just the mount. It slips on much easier than the others and is not as expensive. It will take the Fastway F3/F5 or a Scotts/Ohlins damper.

The cables had plenty of room. I think you could go up another 1" or so with no problem, so total of 2 1/2". The throttle cables would be the first bind, so you could flip the throttle over to get another 1" or so.

If you want quality, functionality and durability there is nothing that will beat the Highwaydirtbikes risers. They are the only ones that mount using all 4x M10 bolts into the top triple clamp which is critical for stability as you go higher, they include a stabilizer mount that will fit Scotts, Fastway and probably other dampers, and it's even adjustable should you ever switch to different offset clamps on this bike or the next.

IMO it's in a different league compared to the other stuff, and still fairly priced.

Not sure I'm following you. What's way too involved? Are you talking about the handlebar perches? There are only two pinch-bolts on each perch, and I'm sorry but I don't know what you mean about dual-pinning. The footpegs are still in development, so hard to say how those will end-up. The little bit of FEA testing that we've done suggests that they ARE way overbuilt, but would rather start with something like that and whittle it down than the other way around. Shoot me a PM if you have any ideas that you'd like to share with us, or post-up in our vendor thread. We're always open to that kind of thing, but don't want to take this thread too far off-track.

2nd that. Paul makes really nice stuff and using all four 10mm bolts is the only way to go.

Sounds good. I knew you guys would have the answer
This bike still amazes me. I finally got it out this past Saturday for a REAL ride. We did some very aggressive enduro/single track stuff about 30 min north of Chattanooga in the Sequatchie Valley. Old timber mining areas. Very rocky, hilly sections, tons of water crossings and it was muddy! The bike found traction unlike anything I've ever ridden in my life. It tractored up rock walls well. It pulled super hard but still smooth and predictable....so it was really controllable. We pulled over for our first break and I looked at my fellow riders and said "this thing is freaking magic". It made me faster than I've ever been. Damn....KTM really nailed this one.

please dont think I am busting your balls man I am always excited to see folks that have the creativity and also the means to make cool stuff like this.

those foot pegs look very intelligent Much better than Pivot pegs and the Fastways. I am currently running the big foot Zipty's but I like the ARCH you have in them. I and fine with the Ziptys but not so much of the add on of them I prefer a once peice peg. If the foot print of yours is close Ill take at least one pair

Im gong to goto PM mode as to not distract from the threads purpose any more.

Agreed. Paul is not only a great guy to work with, his parts are top notch quality that can take a beating. My Brushguard mounts are scratched up big time and have kept my handle bards from being tweaked over the many, many soil-samples. HDB is top quality and tougher than nails.....

I didnt see any risers on HDB's website....of course I'm still a couple coffees shy of a morning. I emailed them asking.

What position (1-4) does the HDB riser put the handlebar.

Paul has a few risers but his new stuff, using all four 10mm bolts into the triple, puts the bars in the #3 position.

Yeah these are the ones that I meant. They are not on the website yet but if you email Paul he will be able to get you set up with whatever you need. Pretty sure that he is using them on his own 500 as well.

Here is an animation he sent me that shows how they work:
