Hi,

Due to havein a custom seat and being 6'3, I have found that I need to raise the handlebars up. I saw in a previsous post a mention about barback risers. Where can I find some?? My bars need to go up about an inch or so.

I have bar risers on my '87 k75s, just short of 1". I keep thinking the original design/setup is the way the bike should be ridden, so I keep changing them in and out. I drive for awhile without the risers, which is fine for short drives, but I always decide to put them back in. I guess being 5'-8" I need all the help I can get to reach the bars.

a couple of notes.
I have 1" two flat brackets that are used to relocate the dash. as far as the brake line, it is very tight, but I found with mine that I can find a spot that works well with the orig brake lines. I loosen the right hand switches which allows a couple of things. It allows you to adjust the handle bars without putting too much pressure on the brake lines and it gives you movement to the mirrors. With the K75S, you have to watch that the mirrors don't contact the shield at full lock. I just adjusting the switch/mirror mounts to suit.
