How are your risers working out? Need more cable?

Just installed the black 1 3/4" Rox risers on the 990. The quality is awesome and I like the new bar placement, expecially for standup work. Issue is I'm not comfortable with the amount of throttle cable tension when at full lock. I've been able to tease in the clutch and brake, and have the bar tilted a little farther forward than I would like to make it all work, even after relieving what tension I could with respect to cable/line routing. It's mostly just a throttle issue now - there's just not enough cable. Has anyone got a source of longer cables that will fit?

Did you flip the cables over so they are on the bottom?


Works like a charm.

I flipped mine over, but I still don't think it's enough. Are ppl routing the cables to the other side of the steering stem? So that the cables exit to the right of the steering stem. I've got the 1 3/4 in risers, but can't see enough room for the 2 in risers.

I have 2" rally risers from http://www.rallyconnex.com/

I've rotated the cables down, and there is no problem. (they go on the left side of the steering head)

Thanks all - going to either flip the 90's to the bottom as suggested or run the other side of the stem, as I've gotten the height I want but can't move them back at all. With all the relief I could get, I'm still getting slight rpm surge at full lock right. A friend of mine just put the 2" units on his '11, but I was hesitant and went with the 1 3/4 - good thing, as there's no way they would have worked without a total reroute/replace on this '12.

I've rotated the gas cables downwards

and also moved them to the left of the steering stem. They never stretch too much. However the front brake lines are stretched to their limits. I have a 990Adv with 2" dirtinblood risers.
Cheers.

Correction right

So you twist the throttle with your left hand?

Sorry:)

2" rox risers on a 2011 990 dakar. Flipping the throtle wires the bottom do the trick. There's cable enough to allow full range of movement of the handlebar side to side with no noticable tension on the cable' bundles

+1 on flipping the throttle. Didn't have to reroute. Just the flip. Make sure the front brake master cylinder or bark busters don't get in the way. Since you are changing things up, it's possible. 2 inch risers are no problem for stock cable lengths.
My 2 cents.

Definately worth the trouble - makes all the difference when you're up on the pegs. Had to fly to the US on business today, so will sort out and get a pic or two up when I'm back, as it may be helpful to those considering risers to see what slack is left after the flip. In hindsight, the 2" would not be necessary for my ergo's, as the 1 3/4 get the job done without making the seated position awkward.

Flipped the cables to cut some much needed slack...



Then set these awesome Rox up in the position I wanted them... huge improvement in ergos.

Don't forget to move your mirror from the master cylinder onto the perch bracket.

A few $ spent now will save in the long run
