I didn't see and handlebar risers in the Polaris Catalog. What risers do you guys use and how much $ should I expect to pay? I have an '02 550 Supersport.

My fathers 700 RMK has after-market risers. His was bought from Dennis Kirk or Shade-Tree Powersports for around $50. May seem expensive but its worth the money in the powder.

Instead of riser blocks, two years ago i bought the handlebars from a ZR and put them on my XCR. It came with hooks, it put the bars up higher, and they are also straight. I won't ever go back, they are great.

I would think that higher bars are better for riding where you can ride back on the sled and not kill your back as much. I personally dont mind a regular stock bar. One thing I do wish I could have is a throttle that didnt hurt my thumb!!

They also help if you so alot of riding standing up. This usually happens on the rougher trails or if you do some xc racing.

I use raised handlebars, because they are more comfortable while stand up riding; and makes it easier on your back. This gives you the ability to use your legs to take smoother landings and fly through the air with more control than sitting on the seat. This is usually for very aggresive riding that provides quicker reaction, better balance, and a maneuverable ride. Strait bars allow a person to hang on better, and give more leverage in turns. They're nice for mountain sleds too.

Watch Blair Morgan ride Sno X, he's notorious for riding stand-up style. IT all goes back to Moto X bikes who ride standing all the time, and has made it's way to snowmobiles.

Let it snow!!!
