Riser Extensions

I'm in the process of installing an unknown brand of 1" up and 1 1/8" back risers on my 1K. I've been able to find enough slack to be comfortable with the placement of the brake and clutch lines but am concerned about the tightness of the two wires coming out of the kill switch housing. Is there somewhere on the bike I should be looking for slack or are there simple 1-2" extensions I can purchase so I can turn to the right?

I put 2" Rox risers and Pro Taper ATV High bars on mine and found enough slack to suit me. The wires were the tightest, but I think I probably moved things a lot further than you are doing. If you can't get it to suit you I think Eastern Beaver has short extensions.

I was able to make it work. Pulled the wires out of their guide and put them where I wanted them and used a zip tie to keep 'em there. Should work out.
