I think most got the Magura MX bars, although some ended up with some Renthals: Magura are silver, Renthals are gold I believe. Don't know the Renthals model but someone else might.

getting hot down there yet?

I'm trying to figure out which is the quick and dirtiest way to get a bit more bar height (loaded risers or bars?) before the up-coming ass-bleeding trip to the Eastern Rondevous in Hot Springs N.C. (700+ miles each way). I reckon the Loaded risers are cheaper? but, I'm not sure how high to go and would like to give the guys at the shop the risers or bar now since they have had my bike a freakin month already. In 6 weeks I'll be heading for NC and I think taller bars will ease the back strain a bit as I still feel like the initial 40mm or 1-5/8" inch rise was not enough with the Boejangles seat in the equation
( I'm 6'3").
What do ya think? should I double it to 80mm or 3-1/4" inches???????
Not too hot yet but, its only a matter of days now.

Do you have longer cables already? I hear anything over that 30-40mm will require longer cables...

could always go for some of these:

The sommer kit came with longer cables but, I suspect they are nearly maxed out so, I probably still have to get cables. Hope that doesn't take another month!! The harley pic reminds me of when I put tall ATV handlebars (in frustration) on my "zook"....they were shitty bars and I pretzeled them in a week. That was the only time I recall having bars TOO tall. They were great STANDING 10 feet tall though!!! I guess I'll check in with loaded and see if he can crank out a couple sizes. Its just when I'm Blitzing down the highway,
sitting all the way back, I find myself slouching severly so I can reach the bars.
I think that will be catastrophic under cross country conditions.
Aren't you tall also meat??? Do you have custom risers???

6'4" and full of muscle... well, more like a tall drink of water

I am about to order some loaded risers (the standard no new cable height)... oh loaded...

with the boejangles seat I am purdy tall. but sitting back I try to keep my back straight (think OSHA) no matter what. this helps. standing up I need risers. what I really need is a windscreen for long hauls seated.

Motion Pro makes custom cables - check in with them!

Get in line....I live in the land of many rainbows remember?
So, I take it you are going for the 40mm rise then??
Let me know what you think about the ergos when you get the risers installed.
If you are 6'4" and comfy then, maybe its all in my head?

I am from Seattle and went to school on capitol hill; you get used to being hit on I think its kinda good - allows men to know how women feel when men come on too strong

oh loaded!!!

I have Pastrana FMX bars on mine. Get's another 1 1/2" or so. Funny, not bad, just funny bend when seated but very nice when standing. Let me know if you want me to go out and measure them.

These were taken for the GPS mount, not the bars but they may give you a rough idea.

Don't know if this will help but it is cheap. There are two aluminum spacers under the engine that you replace if you have a skidplate. These spacers will make 1 inch bar risers, you just need longer bolts for the bar clamp to triple clamp connection.

Home sickness......
Time to raid the emergency stores for a VB, TimTams and of course Vegemite on toast.... That's better


What's the max riser before extended cables are needed. After the Baja ride and doing 20-30 miles standing the bars were just ~30mm too low for me (6'1")

I put Pastrana FMX's (+1-1/2", maybe), and the Emig underbar damper mounts (+1-1/4", no damper yet, BTW), and all the stock cables seem to be fine, but the bike is still apart for some upgrades, so I haven't ridden it yet. The Patrana's are a little narrower than stock, which helps a little. Emig's website led me to believe I would get more lift than 1-1/4".

At 6'4", I think I'm still going to need more standing room. I may try the Fastways instead of more bar height.

Oh yeah, mine's a 2002 model-don't know how that compares to yours, control cable wise.
