Risers query

Hi, Does anyone have a suggestion for handlebar risers for my 2017 V-Strom 650 XT?
One that does not require new cables and lines?
thanks.... Shira

I'm surprised that any work w/o9 replacing brake lines. I replaced the bars on my '18 1000xt with a very similar bend and there is no extra clutch or brake line at all.

Hello,
Similar question. I am thinking of putting on the 2" Rox on 2016 1000. Has anyone installed riser on a 2016 1000? If so what did you have to do? Thanks for any help.

I put "up and back" risers on mine first before swapping out handlebars and had no problem. This was on a 650 Adventure 2012 model.
