This doesn't make any difference.

Sliding the forks up in the triple tree doesn't change the distance the upper brake line travels from the master cylinder to its destination just above the radiator.

Lowering does, however, shorten the length needed for the lower brake line that runs from above the radiator to the right caliper. But, no need to buy shorter lines. Stock length works fine. You'll just have some extra slack.

Always better to be a bit longer than too short....IJS

I bought the same ones that Hogges bought on eBay. The install was a breeze and it corrected the handle bar reach that my Corbin seat had caused. Absolutely worth the small cost.

Brake lines on many bikes (w/o ABS) go from the master cylinder down to the caliper. In those cases, sliding the forks up does add to brake line slack because you're moving the master cylinder closer to the caliper. This is not at all the case on our bikes.

I got 2 pair from a fellow member. One is up 1" and the other set is actually sold for a 1200 GS BMW and comes up an inch and back an inch.
Installed on an '04 and an '05 650, not need for cable fiddling but they are about at the extreme of slack.
I can't see the maker marks and I forget what it was.

I have an old pair of rox risers. spent all afternoon trying to get them into the system and without mods I would not have enough play for my conservative tastes. Bought some risers that went up about 1 inch and back about 1 inch. they fit and worked good but with the stock seat I was sitting absolutely bolt upright. Went with 30 mm risers and they work and fit me best, I like to lean forward just a little bit when riding. YMMV.

I also bought and installed the ones from Turkey. They worked as the others stated, and made the bike much nicer to ride IMO. I left my front brake line anchor loose and will fab a bracket to fix it back. Also moved throttle cables to the rear of the top clamp. The cables are only just long enough. I would prefer them a couple inches longer but I've seen no problems with them as they are.

The ebay item number is 262890691963. Mine arrived in the time promised, and tracking was somewhat accurate. I got a couple of the Suzuki plastic caps for the hex bolt sockets and it looks very original. I'm surprised how much more comfortable it made my bike. DD
