I`m a tall guy so I like my seat set back , but it causes me to reacha little on the handle bars . The fix would be a 2 inch riser for the bars which I can not find on the net .

Does anyone know where I might find a set ?

I saw a set on ebay but they were listed for a 1000 ...would they be the same ?

thanks for any input

Any riser for 7/8 bars will fit. the problem is going to be whether or not your wiring and brake hose are long enough for the risers. I put one inch on mine and they worked fine. but i would be worried about trying any taller.

The front brake hose will be to short. I used a rear bake hose in it's place and it worked great.

I was worried the brake hose would be a little short .
may leave things as they are ..I never liked redueing Honda`s handy work only to cause myself more work in the mix .

I put handle bar set-backs on my 1100 back in the day. I don't recall having to change any front cables.
