    Anybody put bar risers on? Did you have to lengthen any lines?

    Tusk handlebar risers, like 20 bucks shipped, have the same ones on my bike now, they work great.

    +1. I've got the same one's on my bike. Took about 5 minutes to install. No changes necessary.

    Why not skip the risers and just go to a higher bend ATV bar. They're usually 2-3" higher than the standard bars. Buy steel bars that are low buck that way if you don't like 'em you can swap back without blowing a lot of quid.

    Look up the various bars and look at the numbers. Renthal (big $) actually makes some higher bars with the same bend as the lower bars on pull back and width.
