Up and back risers

Has anyone installed them? Been looking at the 2018 1000 and the extra length on wiring and hoses doesn't look to be enough. Have the risers on my 2005 650 and would be moving them to the 1000.

You can get away with 2" risers without changing anything, you just need to pop the triple tree off and route wires and hoses to the inside, takes 15 minutes. On some bikes you may not need to reroute anything.

If you want to go higher though, say 3.5", then you need new clutch and brake lines, the wiring still works if moved to other side of triple tree.

Adding new clutch and brake lines is pretty simple really.
