Now I need a little help please...

The bar risers on the new bike are...

A: too short and...
B: hit the new tank.





So far I've just been dealing with it but it is nice to be able to use the whole range of motion.

The 04 had a 3" RSW racing triple clamp(dropped for a Kouba lowering link) and the stock cables work fine. I'd just switch out triple clamps but the RSW risers are for a 7/8" bar, not the 1 1/8" bar I have now.

What I'm thinking I want are the Rox 3 1/2" risers. So...

Is anyone running the 3 1/2" risers on a stock bike, stock cables, no lowering link. Do the stock cables work with the 3 1/2" riser?

If they don't reach, I can probably make due with the 2" risers for the time being as I'd rather deal with a little slouching then replacing all the cables at this time.

I did the 3.5" rise. I also added ATV high bend bars. The results.....new cables +3" and +4" to keep things clean. Motion pro has the clutch and choke cables at +3". I went with +4" Barnes for the throttle cables.

I did not try with the Rox and a regular bend bar.

Moose fat bar adaptor, risers, tallest 50mm & Protaper Pastrana FMX/ATV High bars. Stock cables, maybe a little rerouting & works great.

I've got the CR-high bend bars, stock triple clamp. What 3 1/2" riser did you go with?

Just an FYI...got off the phone with Motion Pro. They have 3" longer push, pull(throttle) and clutch cables in stock(not in their cataloge yet) for the XRL. They don't have a 3" replacement for the choke yet...

Prices given to me...

Pull cable =28.19
Push cable =27.23
Clutch cable=15.99
Choke cable=35.00(custom build)

Who is this "Barnes" you speak of? Got a link?

I did Rox rizers. They are the only ones that I will use. The Barnes cables are spendy. It cost me $40/cable. Those prices seem reasonable. I bought my bcables 8 months ago and MP said that they were going to make the choke cable a standard....I gues they are a bit slow.

I miss typed. Barnett. http://www.barnettclutches.com/ They are local to me. If you order it will be a special order. Yes they do cables also.

Question How much benefit to a full header-back aftermarket exhaust on the xrl?

I have a Big Gun slip-on on my xrl, just wondering how much noticeable benefit I'll get from adding an aftermarket header to go with it? I really don't want to lose any of the awesome torque I have now, but wouldn't mind a little more power for higher speed highway cruising at my 5000 to 8000+ft of elevation. In my experience with other bikes, you almost always lose some low end to gain up top with aftermarket exhausts. Just wondering how the xrl is affected, and if its worth doing?
Thanks in advance for any feedback given

I have the White Bros. E3 system, header and muffler. The low end does not seem to be affected by this combination.
If highway cruse seems sluggish, you may be jetted too rich for your altitude. For 5000 to 8000 feet you should be at 48 pilot and 145 to 147 main. Check with a dealer at your altitude.

If you check on rswracing.com you will find 1 1/8 replacement bar risers. I just priced them because I was looking for a replacement. They are $52 that includes shipping. If you use the stock rise handlebars the stock thorthol cables will work. But you will need the plus 3 inch motion pro clutch cable.If you go with atv bars or kawasaki high bend bars you will need the longer thorthol cables also. Found you a link. http://rswracing.com/barmounts.htm

I've got FMF powerbomb header and the Q4 exhaust. When I put the OEM exhaust and header back on it runs rough, mainly cause I need to rejet, but the reason I need to rejet is because of the restricted flow...

I'm happy with my FMF stuff and I'm going to put it back on the first chance I get (which is why I didn't bother changing my jets

I never did a dyno but swapping from aftermarket to OEM was VERY noticeable to me in the power, response and tone of the bike.

Yeah, I have no problem with those prices. Just posted them for others to see.
I'm just trying to go as tall as possible without having to change the cables too. I can live with a smaller lift. I could probably live with the 1" lift I have now if it didn't hit the tank. I don't do much serious off road but I do like to be able to stand up now and then.


Thanks for the replies/help Bob!
