maybe he meant by "easier" that there have been many users that have switched handlebars compared to buying risers. There is just more real world testing done with this method so far.Why would it be easier to get higher bars, seems like it would be more work moving all the controls over.
I'd rather stick with factory bars.
The cables, wires, and brake lines are long enough for taller/wider bars or for risers (ie: the ones that come with the GPR stabilizer). But the brake lines aren't long enough to do both. I didn't realize it until I got the stabilizer. Anyone know if the cables and wires are long enough for both? I'm glad I didn't upgrade to stainless brake lines yet - because I'll just order 35mm longer ones.
What exactly is the issue you are trying to resolve? In looking at the FZ09 ergos, it indicates a "zero" forward lean. I had risers on a Suzuki SV650N, but the forward lean on that bike as stock was fairly high, and risers reduced that issue. But just sitting on the FZ it seems like the riding position relative to the bars is very neutral. Are you finding the riding position uncomfortable?Pulled the trigger on these this morning. I will post pics and let you know how the install goes once I have them.
