2013 Wee. Can I install an adj 2" riser?

Will I need to replace or reroute any cables?

Tusk makes a 30mm riser which looks good comes in 2 sizes 7/8 or 1"1/8. Which one do I need for '13 Wee?

I just finished installing the 2" adjustable Rox Risers on my 2013 dl650. On the left side of handlebar I removed the wires from the clip but left the clutch cable in the clip. On the right side I removed both the brake line & throttle cables from the clip. Also removed the cable tie from the throttle cables. At an idle there was no change of RPM's lock to lock & nothing seemed to be binding, although I will be purchasing the extended SS brake line kit & the electrical extensions. Took her out for quick ride & oh, what a difference, I can sit up straight with arms relaxed.
Which Sand Box are you in?

You are never lost,
just temporarily misplaced.

7/8" for stock bars. That's what I put on my '13, and although a bit snug, all the cables are fine. I scuffed the risers up with some fine sandpaper and painted them black. I think they look good and definitely help.

I raised mine 1 inch with no problems with cables, brake lines etc. It does take up the slack in the brake line, but works fine. From what I've read and the consensus on this issue, seems to be that anything much over that involves lengthing the brake lines.

So I'll go with the consensus and you should expect to have to lengthen the brake line from the master cylinder down to the junction box.

I just ordered some 30mm from Rocky Mtn $19.99 I like the way yours look in black. What type of paint did you use?

Did I read somewhere that the abs limits the riser choices?

I use Krylon Fusion black for all that stuff. Can't remember if I used gloss or satin though.
