I went a 5" riser on my 2001 ZR 800. But, just take your handlebars off and pull it up as high as you can and just measure the distance from the bottom of the handlebar to the top of your steering post.
Sorry for steeling your topic, but I have related question. What is a good height for improved ride comfort? I have a 96 Indy 500 (evolved body) and my buddy has a 96 XLT (wedge body). We both agree that my sled has a much nicer sitting position. It really seems like you need to lean forward to reach the bars on the XLT.
How high do you have to extend the bars to get them to a nice cruising height? Do you need an articulated riser? Any recommended kits?
2 inches just seems like it wouldn't do much, but maybe that would bring them to the height of most other sleds.
to settle everyones questions how far can I go to whats the best cumfort
all You need to do is loosen you bars and get a 2X4 peace of wood and put it in between and have someone hold the bars and get on and get a feal
all of you that want to know what the best comfort would be- we dont know what position is gonna be good for you....you need to see for yourself
