Bar risers?

Just bought a 2011 v strom 650 and want to know, Do you have to use line extensions if you want to use bar risers?

Some say yes, others no.

When I added the 1up/1back on my L1 Wee, I also added the extended brake line.

2009 with ABS and I needed to extend the brake line with 2" rox risers. Everything else was okay but tight. There was no way the brake line was going to make it. Blair from SV Racing set me up.

If you have ABS, then you will definitely need to extend the brake line. If it is a non-abs, you most likely will not need to extend it.
