How can i go and make my own Handle Bar riser, the polaris bars on the old sleds are just too low. I was thinking raising it about 1-2 inches, so any homemade ideas are welcome.
Thanks

my buddy used a piece of 2" square tubing, steal of course, then he uses longer bolts. seems to work and it worked last year for him. just be sure that if you are doing anything that deals with controling your sled, that you test it first. don;t want to find out at 75 mph that you can't steer any more... good luck

If all you are looking for is one to two inches then just go to a steel supply company and see if they have any aluminum block stock that would roughly match the area over the end of the steering post where the bar clamps mount. Cut it to match the height you want, clamp it in a drill press and use the bar clamp as a template and drill four holes, buy longer bolts and you are in business! I would have to agree with Joshwa in that for this small of a mod just buying the prefabed part is going to be more worth while since the raw materials are going to cost as much as the finished product. But don't let us hold you back. It's good to see some of the younger guys getting creative and building up their own custom sled parts. Good luck!

That sounds like a good idea, I think ill try it, seeing as then I can pick the height I want and possibly adjust it afterward.
Thanks AKnarrowback
