After reading all these posts about risers I got to thinking. The steering shaft on a lot of sleds is very thin. I personally pull on my stock bars really hard the way it is and am sometimes worried that I may rip the bars clean off. I couldn't imagine having 2-3 times the leverage, let alone tipping the sled over and having the bar be the only thing to hit the ground. I sure would hate to be out in bfe with my bars dangling by the cables. I'm just curious.

I'm running a 7" FLY riser, so I know all about leverage! I can get the steering shaft to flex by pulling hard in almost any direction. I've rolled my sled quite a few times, and have yet to do any damage. My steering shaft is even straight still, as far as I know anyway.
