It should fit. You have to get the pivot adapter though or the bars will not be set at a good angle.

When you get the pivot adapter it adds something like 1.75 inches of rise as well so your two inch riser block on top of that will be almost four inches in the end.

Due to that amount of rise you will likely have to re-route your brake and throttle cable so that they are not stretched out. Hopefully you will not have to do any extensions because they can be expensive.

I just put the ROX risers on my sled and they are quality pieces and are fully articulating as well. I got the 3.5 inch version and had to re route my cables but once re-routed they reached just fine.

Agree...go with Rox. One solid piece and a quality product. I installed a 5 inch riser on my sled. They also have a version similar to the one shown above that you can adjust the height of...might be the way to go if you are unsure of the height you want.

www.roxspeedfx.com - here is their website.

Ive used power mads set up and its quite good, will work fine with a 2 inch riser on yours. no extensions needed works good and had the right amount of height for about a 5'6" person

i just got the new powermadd universal pivot riser. it's a lot cheaper and can be used with standard riser blocks. haven't installed it yet but it seems like it's cool.

Thats the same setup Ive got on my '01 600 EDGE X. I like it. Its tall enough that you can stand up so that the sled doesnt pound you over the big bumps but its still low enough that you can sit down and still have enough leverage to steer the sled without wearing yourself out.

I almost bought the Rox articulating riser, but to me it looked very cheap and flimsy compared to the Powermadd. I like the Powermadd better because its 1 solid piece.

nice set up, yes it works perfect for trail riding, and the edge has a slightly taller post then the prox, there for my bars are about 8 inchs tall.

I didn't like the Powermadd set-up. I returned the one I purchased and picked up the Sportech Riser.
[galleryattach=13610]

The Powermadd will fit, but the adaptor pushes the bar forward an inch, then you attach the riser block. So the handlebar is alittle closer to you after you install it. And being a solid block of aluminum, you can't run any wires between it, only around it. You might have to play with the wiring a little.

The Rox Riser is nice....but not cheap.

on my old sled i had a 2 inch rise and i am 6 foot. wish i had more. best idea is to tkae your bars off and hold them at the height you like them. then see how big of a gap is between. then get the right height. both sets above will work great for you. juts make sure you get the ball park of height. becuase after i did mine i wish i went bigger.
