I didn't have a problem with the bolts, fit right in. The anodizing makes sense.

2''

the one thing l noticed was on the first ones it had a rectangle linking the two sides together but the one l have has the round piece linking the sides together, it allows it to twist when you go down, l had to put it in a press to get it back

just installed my rally risers and no sign of a 7 mm allen wrench in my pile of tools
was about to grind down a 8 mm a tad as no imperial was close either
then tried a torx and a 45 is a pretty good fit and good enough for the 15-20 ft-lbs torque
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
should be a lot better now - for standing - I'm 6'8"
my brake line is a bit tight on the radius down from master
I switched the lines in the clip on frame behind gas tank (line to lever on top now)
my bike has ABS so line goes back to ABS unit under seat
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
had to move throttle under bars - no room for rubber dust boot as it is to tight to switch gear now
looks like you left boot on in your picture - any trick ?

It's been so long I don't remember. I don't remember having any trouble with it. Try loosening the switch and rotating it out of the way. Then get your throttle in place. Maybe a little light grease or lube on the rubber boot and then rotate the switch back into place. Good luck.

Risers can still be acquired by contacting rallyconnex@gmail.com
See also www.rallyconnex.com

You may have to make contact more than once. The guy is away quite often and very busy.

Sumi,
Here is the website for the Dirtnblood riser - aka Rally Connex http://www.rallyconnex.com/adventure.../equipment.htm.
It took me several months to get mine (it included the Scott mounting adapter as well) and lots of emails - but it was worth it!

the rallyconnex website is very poor - no pictures of any stabilizer mount that you talk about
was it a custom part for you ?
---------------------------------------------
I was a little unsure about a 2" riser mounted to one 10mm bolt - seems kind of undersized for this leverage
after a ridding buddy flipped his bike and sheared off the stock handlebar mount bolt on one side
after I mounted the 2"bone riser by rallyconnex I gave the handlebars a good flex test and
the bars seemed to flex long before the riser moved or the rubber mount on triple clamp moved
BUT I could see that little 10mm bolt breaking in a crash very easily
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
just a note - it seems all KTM's use whimpy 10mm mounting bolts - why ?

Weldit,
I think it may be a "custom" part - but he has made a few of them that I know of. I found it reading this thread - http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...ht=rally+riser . I have had it on the bike for about 10 months and it is close to perfect for me on and off road. An inch more rise would be nice - but then I would need new brake and clutch lines - and maybe throttle cables as well.

Ill throw this in. I seen the OP's (Holaday) set up and this was a pretty sweet. I thought he mentioned they were hard to come by these days if at all ? Blair chime in if you have some thoughts on this.

Wow lots of posts on this old thread. I'm sure he is still around, just takes some patience. I'd like to learn more about this Scott's mount option. I have been slow to get a steering dampner cause I thought I'd have to give up my Dirtnblood riser. I'd like to keep it if I went to a Scott's.

Thank you for all of the replies! I'll try to contact him.
----------------
As for the bolt size "issue": when I got off the bike this summer when crashing into a tree, I've also bent those bolts during the process of the handlebar getting hit by my knee. In my opinion this is not a design flaw, but an advantage, as the bolt will "sacrifice" itself, absorbing some of the energy of the impact, instead of breaking your bones / bending / breaking the handlebar and/or the triples.
