I want to put raise the handlebars on my Sabercat. How much rise can I go without extending the cables? I was thinking a 2" rise would make it more comfy without worrying about the cables. I've seen a few different types of risers and here are some examples. I really don't know which type to choose.

On a quick side note, where can I find plastic covers/guards for the foot board edges? I scratched them a little bit when I forgot to take off my boot cleats for ice fishing. Dumb***!!

Usually 2-3" of rise is the general rule for not extending cables. Every model will vary though. Being you are only going that little bit, you should only need a standard riser block, or an angled riser block. The standard is cheaper, but the angled brings the bars forward. Ultimately up to you to decide what you want.

You can get that plastic stuff for the boards from alot of places- AL's, Dennis kirk, anything that sells sled parts.

I put almost a 2 1/2 inch pivot riser on my sled, wouldn't go any taller without extensions though.

Sounds good. I hate the summer so much that working on sled stuff helps keep my mind off of it.
