Good point!Funny story on installing risers. This guy I know ( we won't mention any names ) was installing a 6 inch riser on his bars, on his summit. And when he was done, or what he thought, he fire's it up and it takes off out the driveway, across the street and into the side of a neighbors house. All fixable damage to the house so it was really funny.
So ya, make sure your throttle cable is right when you're doing risers on your bars.
David, They are really easy to install.. So easy I did mine by myself. Ok well i did the work and snowmutt was there to guide me through to make sure I did the right thing... Now I let him take care of the throttle cable stuff but putting risers on was really quite simple. With your heigth I would think you should probably go more than 2". I have a 3" on mine with no throttle extension needed. I and trailblazer both have Idooski's Risers and I highly recommend these. KD extreme Risers. Click Idooski's link at the bottom of his post's OR Pm him.. he does a great job with these and makes all sizes.heres my question about riser blocks...let me start off by saying that i know absolutely nothing about fixing sleds beyond the very basics (and i mean basics) i have been riding for 17 years but have always just brought my sleds to the shop to be serviced or have been lucky enough to have my extremely handy father to fix things. i really want to put a riser on my sled so that when i stand up to ride (im 6'1) i dont have to kill my knees so much. I'm not looking for anything extreme (as i spend probably less than 1/4 of my time standing) so would i only need like a 2" riser? I also don't want the thing to be an eyesore, trailblazer that chrome looks good, where did u get it? How difficult are these things to install?
