{After throttle cables moved to the right.}

Can be a problem with ABS brake lines too, even with 1.25 risers.
This worked for me:

You will see it when you take off the tank, pretty obvious.

You can see the orange lines in this model to show the routing and see what I mean.



Otherwise you will need a new line from the master to the ABS unit under the seat if the risers are too high.

Has anyone installed the RoxRisers with a set of Highway Dirt Bike hand guards. I just installed the HDB guards on both KTM's. Makes me feel much more protected when I drop the bike now.

plus, call me vain, but i don't like the look of the Rox risers. looks like an after thought...

no one has any input on the Mori risers? for $20 i think i may just have to give them a shot. i don't need much rise, nor do i believe i need to move forward at all.

thanks,

laramie
