Handle Bar Extender for 919

I'm looking at a handlebar extender that will move the 919's up 1" and back 1" making an effective 1 1/4 inch move. Has anyone tried this? Does it require a change in cables (brakes and or throttle)? Your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dave

A handful have done this mod that I've seen. Risers made by GenMar and a couple other companies that move up and back 1" or less will require no change in cables, providing they are stock length.

I have done this, it did not require a cable change. The clutch cable is a little snug when I turn tight in the garage, or parking lot. A more comfortable ride for me.

Thanks ALL, I'll give it a try. I think the comfort factor might be worth it.

Where are you looking for that and what is the price? I am getting my new 919 on Sat. but am already looking for some mods to make it more comfortable/econimical. I have already decided to invest in a 17t front sprocket.

Are you going to drill that handlebar extender or just tape it?

I'd really like to know!

I'd really like to know how this works for you guys. I'm short and reaching across the tank on long rides really gives me some back and shoulder problems.

Please respond if you've used this method or when you do.

I'm thinking of maybe adding the universal adaptor that moves the bar up and back. But I mostly want them to be moved back so I may go with lower bars to offset the 1" rise.

A member of this site rider919er did that exactly. He had risers with Ultra-lows installed. Although he hasn't visited in a while and the only pictures of his setup were on his 919 for sale thread, but aren't there any longer.
