Barbacks

I bought my barbacks a few months ago and they are well made, easy to install, and make my ride more comfortable. Quick shipping and good folds to deal with. Johnny

I was very pleased with the service getting these risers but I have to say that the claim of no cable, hose and wire routing mods need done are not the case. I have an 08 1000 and once the up and back risers where on ALL but the wiring bundle that goes to the right grip and the throttle cables had to be
modified.

1. The brake hose bracket at the base of the steering stem needed removed.
2. The wiring bundle that goes to the left grip needed removed from the
metal loop near the top of the steering stem and the bracket under the
steering stem (the throttle cables share this bracket and remained)
3. The clutch hose was rerouted to the back side of the triple tree and the
metal loop at the steering stem removed.
4 To get all the play I could on the throttle cables I rotated the grip towards
the front, it is still marginal when turned hard right.

Without doing all this I was streching everything pretty bad when I turned the bars stop to stop. Maybe if I had pulled the tank I could have found some slack to use but I had it off a week ago to check the air cleaner and I noticed then that EVERY thing was tighter than a ......

If any body can set me striaght I would appreciate it because the last thing I wanted to do was be taking off factory routing assemblies and replaceing them with zip ties. Sitting on the bike the bars feel a lot better in my hands, I wont be able to ride it for a while, this global warming has me all snowed in way up here in the Great White North of southeast PA.

Fixed the problem

I ordered the risers from Blair on Wedensday & recieved them on Friday. Great looking and made product, went on without a snag about a 15 minute job. Took the Wee for a test ride and the up & back risers fixed the problem, no more pain in the back,wrist & shoulders from leaning forward. A product that really works, money well spent and Blair is the best to deal with

I have the same risers and tried installing on my "09 DL650 . . . NO WAY will they work without extensive cable, wire and front brake line modifications. I am not sure the risers are worth the risk of loosing the correct factory routing of these vital components. I'm still pondering whether to return them or not!

So, on a DL650 with ABS, I must change out my brake line? If so then I might as well do the 4 piston caliper change then as well.

Another happy customer

Still looking for the perfect spot for the handlebars in the risers but here's another happy customer of Blair's. Got the risers and the brake extension for an 09 ABS. Great service and quick replies to any emails.

Thanks Blair
