Here is a kit with nylon inserts. I prefer aluminum, but can't remember where I bought them last.

Rox has an anti-vibration riser that works pretty good. They also have pivoting riser up to 5". http://www.roxspeedfx.com/

I know from getting fitted for mountain bikes and road bikes you pretty much need someone there sussing it out with you.

Is that something I could go to my local shop for? How do you go about adjusting bar height-risers-etc without buying a bunch of risers and swapping then out?

I was hoping to pick some brains at the DV Noob Rally and get some better insight into the process.

it's all trial and error. discussing it on the forum will get you ideas. best way is meet other riders and see their set up. if you get to sit on their bikes, you could get the feel what's comfortable for you. for most people, they change the stock set up. with over 200 bikes at the dvnr, you will be able to get some ideas, but can you wait?

ride your bike for now and start with a simple and inexpensive bar riser. the more you ride your bike, you'll figure out your needs.. farkling can be fun.

First question is how big are you, then how do you ride, where do you ride.

If you are normal sized BigTodd and I have our bikes dialed in pretty well. My bike won't be there but I can talk to you about what I have done. If you are are VC (vertically challenged) there are others that can help you out.





To bigtodd and I normal sized is 6' + tall.

I'm 6'1", 225#, 34" inseam. Yeah... my bars seem low. :)
I'm pretty conservative in my riding so far. I've been mountain biking for 25+ years. Prior to that in my more nimble years I skated pools and pipes.



On a mountain bike I'm comfortable traveling quickly on single track and picking lines. So far I've just played a bit in the mud and on some back country roads but no singletrack on motorcycle. I couldn't get on the Lippincott ride since it filled up, but would LOVE to do that ride.

I really appreciate all the tips on setups. Let the farkelage begin.

You will need bar risers and taller bars a taller seat and bigger foot pegs
also a set of springs contract ESP and just pay what they ask

Have you riden gridley on your mtn bike if you can ride there you'll be fine
On any of DV' s roads

When your ready for real motorcycle single track GO ride down ortaga trail
Don't try up intill you have gone down
If you think that's fun send me a pm and I'll show you some fun stuff

Haven't done Gridley yet but thanks for the tip. The ride looks awesome! I've done the Wood Canyon Vista-Guadalasca loop in Mugu State Park a lot. I'm in Taipei until the 15th but that Gridley ride looks like a plan!

The Ortega trail looks ...uh... challenging to say the least.
