Handlebars

I have seen some upgrades to stock bars posted here. I would like something about an inch higher and an inch further back. Does anyone know if that will work without changing all the cables?

TwistedThrottle.com SW-MOTECH risers. I have the up and back set that works perfect. No trouble with stock cable length.

I like my 30mm SW-Motech risers. Because of the steering angle they move the bars about 1" up and 1/2" back. Check your own bike for slack in the cables, I wouldn't go further on mine. Seems to be less vibration too, or the vibes aren't as bothersome.

I tinkered with adjustable risers, and a couple of differnt bends. Finally just got TharBars...wouldn't trade them for anything else I've ever seen. Good thing is I can drop them down for track/spirited riding, or pull them back up and back a bit for a cruise.
