    I think the Touratech risers are 30mm.

    Nice. Do you have different bars as well? I've got some bar risers on the OEM bars that are not as tall as yours and my decomp cable is at it's limit. I would have preferred to get taller risers, but the cables just don't support it.

    I can't even rotate my bars any farther forward :cry

    I hate it when this crap happens; Get risers. Find out you now need new cables - to find out you need new bars - to find out you need a better saddle - to find out you need new pegs - now you don't need the risers anymore!!! :eek1 It's an ugly vicious circle :D

    You can drive on the beach south of Westport. Beautiful spot; empty in the off season. there are some dunes behind the beach but I bet they are not fair game.

    I'd have to check parts books to see if cables and/or bars are different from '02 to '03. :dunno

    Buckster, I have the Touratech risers on mine. The decomp cable is just barely long enough. I haven't had any issues, but it would be good to find a longer cable just to be safe (I haven't gotten around to it yet). The cable looks similar with the TT risers to what is shown in Creepers photo.

    Me too....the Touratech's are 30mm and my decomp cable on my '03 is strung pretty tight. Not sure how Creep can go more that twice that height and still be OK. A longer cable would be nice, just where to find it is the issue...

    here lets try ;
    33/Pi x .03937/~ (cosign of (A/ C) - the sum of B X30) +9 (just for kicks)x 24.5/ 3.14159= 33
    yea that werks :scratch

    I just installed the 40mm (1 5/8" ) FLDA1 bar risers (for mounting the under-bar scotts damper) that I got from KTM Sommer. A bit spendy but, the scotts base plate makes for shorter (theoretically more stable) risers and, as a bonus, the bar-vibes seems a little less intense. Plus, the Scotts Damper can be mounted in the future (when I get spendy again). With these bar risers, and my Boejangles seat, the bike finally "fits" my lanky 6'3" frame.
    Highly recommended for taller riders!!

    I got some 2" spacers being made at a local fabrication shop. Can't wait to get them. Finding the allen bolts may be a bit of a task. I may need to yell at Creeper for his source.

    Better ergos on the way !

    These guys will have what you need.

    But, I think 2" is too much for a spacer-type riser.

    You're probably going to have some cable-length problems, too.

    faack me... I've been converting mm to inches for years and screwed the pooch on that one. damn pui.
    your right. :huh

    .03937 is the multiplier of conversion
    there fore it's 1.299" for 33mm
    30mm is 1.181"
    25.4mm is 1" or really .999999"
    19.050mm is .750"
    I'm so imbare assed

    missed this post gyberman!

    went out and checked and the rotation is correct on mine. maybe with a new set of tires (another type) it might not flop. thanks for the tip.
