Brake cable ext / risers

I would like to raise my bars up and back quite a bit so I was thinking of a 4-inch brake line extension with some risers similar to the ones pictured below.
Suggestions and comments welcome
Thanks

Contact AdventureTech thru the forum.

Also, make sure that much rise won't interfere with electrical and throttle cables. You may run out of room!!! You need to be able to turn the bars lock to lock without pulling the cabling.

Thanks Big Boy... I did contact Rick at Adventure Tech just waiting for a few more people to chime in with their experience before I go ahead and purchase a cable and some risers

Eastern Beaver has extensions for the wiring, with those risers you'll need one for each side.

So I guess what I'm really asking is how high can I go with risers before having to worry about left side cables

Best bet is to undo a few bolts and try your risers - or just hold the bars up where you want them if you have not purchased the risers. I made a dashboard for my '13 650 and found there was not a lot of play in the clutch and throttle cables. I had to unhook the wiring harness from a clip on the frame in order to get the free play. I've read here that risers will require 2" longer brake lines.

Longer clutch and throttle cables? Not sure of a source, but google should help. About 20 years ago I restored an old Guzzi, changing the carbs. This required some custom cables. After searching for a bit I found a company that sold cables, sleeves, ferrules, etc., I bought what I needed and made up my own cables. If I needed risers that's what I would do.

Someone posted that brake hoses are cheap from this company, but you can also get premade sets from AdventureTech.

I know a lot of people have gone 3" with our +2" kit. The number of people doing this and not reporting problems suggest that the throttle cables and clutch cable can accommodate the increase. Not sure how, maybe re-routing.

But I don't recall talking to anyone else about 4".
