Okay, as of right now, my bars sit way too low. they hit my knees when I am sitting and I have to hunch over when I am standing. So I was looking at risers, and I am not completely sure which ones to go with. I was thinking just 3" risers so I don't have to extend the cables and such. I prefer to spend less than 50 on the riser, and then i am looking at a mountain bar also.

I was looking at this, but is that what I want?

It should work correct? I have 7/8" bars I believe.


Anyone? I want to order these tonight or tomorrow.

Wait..... are those just the blocks that you add to the pivot riser? (in the link i posted before)


This is the right thing correct?

I can't seem to find that pivot riser in stock anywhere, at dennis kirk it says "expected soon" so if i were to order it then it would be a backorder.

Okay I just decided to go with a block riser instead. I think I am going to order from JR Graham.

I checked my cables and such, it looks like I have enough throttle cable slack, but the brake cable may be a little bit tight.

Pivot riser is really the way to go. Once youve had a pivot riser you'd never want a block riser.
Its not as if you are going to be riding the sled today or tomorrow, so even if you had to wait a month, what would be the big deal?
You would need this: http://denniskirk.com/jsp/product_catalog/Product.jsp?skuId=595126&store=Main&catId=314&productId=p595126&leafCatId=31402&mmyId=

and this: http://www.denniskirk.com/jsp/product_catalog/Product.jsp?skuId=592885&store=Main&catId=314&productId=p592885&leafCatId=&mmyId=

That would give you 4 1/2" of rise and I think you would be fine with that. With a pivot style riser you can keep the bars more foreward, so you can go higher than you can with a block style riser.
If you run into issues with brakeline and throttle cable length, just dont use the 2" block. The pivot riser conversion kit alone gives you 2 1/2" of rise, so that would get you close to the 3" you are looking for and would much more flexability in setting the bars just how you want them.

What year is your Vmax? I have a 94 Vmax 600. I am also adding risers. The Dennis Kirk ones should work fine. Be carefull the oil injection cable is long enough. Any stretch in that and you will be dumping way too much oil into the system. If you can't find an extension, I would remove the oil pump and run premix. The brake cable is real short on the Vmax as well. You may be able to use a PowerMadd cable extension. For the throttle you can use a PowerMadd cable extension.

The '94 is a whole different animal though. That sled was in the old pogo chassis whereas the newer ones like Pance has were in the ProAction chassis.
Ive heard that you can put a riser on the pogo Yammies by using a block style riser, but Ive never personally seen it done nor have I tried it myself, so I cant say for sure.

The Mountain Max set is by far my most popular Extended cable set and extended brake lines.
I've got them in a package deal with the pivot risers, adjustable height pivot risers, or with riser bars on sale right now on my specials page at www.gravityworxracing.com/specials.html
You can hit the links from there and check out the parts individually too.

These are much higher quality than OEM.
