Risers.

So, my old Arthritic shoulder is letting me know it doesn't like the forward leaning arm stretch position. I might have already asked this but has anyone looked into what's available for the 2014 and will they effect cable length and positioning?
If Rox would work I would go for those. 2" up and back would be perfect.

From what I can see the chances of getting 2" out of the hoses is about 0. I did some tidying up, but I can't see any way to get anything like that much.

With my height I can put up with the slightly forward leaning attitude, but I can see it being an issue with anyone at 5' 10" or more.

Maybe custom braided lines for brake and clutch aren't too hard, but I don't see throttle cable stretching that far.

Found these.
1" up 1.25" back redlunaracing risers
Wondering if I could fudge them in. That 1.5 inches back would prolly do it for me.

If the throttle cables won't allow risers that is a huge mistake by Suzuki. Without risers I wouldn't be riding a V-Strom.

Not a terribly logical comment. So if some 'King Kong' wanted to ride the bike but needed 12" risers that would be a design flaw?

so after 8 years on 2 different vstrom 650 i bought a new v2. this bike is almost perfect for me,just need risers like i had on my 650. my 650 was easy, just put a longer front brake line on. i tried to put these risers on the new v2 and no way will it work!! the front brake line is way to short and it goes into a box ,so you just can't buy a new line. and it looks like the clutch cable is to short and the throttle cables. i hope somebody figures this one out!!

How tall are the risers you were trying to put on?
