Hey, does anyone have experience with any sort of riser on their Street Twin? I'm mostly interested in reducing my reach, but have seen lots of references to the need for a longer cables. I'd like to avoid going that route. Motone's Up-And-Over riser is advertised as being as far as you can go without changing out the cables. I'm interested in any experiences or opinions from the collective. Thanks!

I'd go with the Motone's if new cables are not required.

I agree with Vector, but sometimes you can undo some cable ties and gain just enough slack to make the riser work without binding. Just sold a BMW Scrambler and no matter how I adjusted the cables I couldn't get enough slack and removed the risers and adjusted my riding position and got used to the factory set up.

I agree with Vector as well, but there appears to be no slack with most of the cables running to the handlebars. Looking for slack by undoing cable ties is a great suggestion, but I might just have to live with the factory set up.

Also, as I did on my America w/risers, re-routed cables differently around the triple tree from beneath the tank.
