Motech risers and grip puppies

Put on the Motech pullback risers and the grip puppies today. What a nice difference they both make.

Hey Michael,

Just curious, how were the risers to install? Did you have any issues with rerouting cables or wires? I have been thinking of doing the risers but was wondering if there would be too much tension on the lines.

Thanks,
Mike

No problems. Cables are a little tighter but no rerouting necessary. Did readjust the clamps for the mirrors. Can actually see behind me.

Are the risers you added the 1" up and 1" back ones? Stromette's definitely adding risers or different bars altogether in the very near future.

I've also been thinking about adding risers. But I'm wondering if replacing the bars would be better. If the bars give the same rise and were also stiffer then the stock bars that would kill two birds with one stone.
