Tryed to change handlebar (a little bit high and wide) but the clutch cable is too short...maybe riser will work.
I'd like a wider handlebar

I'm using the SW-Motech risers...

Bar Riser for ideal sitting position, for Suzuki GSX-S 1000.

They raise the bar 20mm (about .785") which was just enough for my alligator arms and doesn't necessitate any changes to clutch or throttle cables. Unfortunately I think they may have discontinued the item.

I use the Rox risers on my Street Triple and am considering using them on my GSXS1000 F. I believe they make 3 sizes adding as much as 2". Very simple to install. Pretty happy with them

Fitted the SW Motech on. Feels a lot better for me. The stock position felt I didn't have as much control as I would have liked. This sorted it out. No need to adjust the cables.

Has anyone tried the Rox 2" pivoting riser to see if it works with cables?
Part # is 1R-P2PPK

Haven't tried that myself. But mine is only a 20mm rise and Is already at the limit with the throttle cable. It is in a high tension and sticks when the handlebar is not set between 0 - 2. Probably resolvable if I grind off the throttle housing positioning pin. Another user here tried to add a slightly higher set of fatbars but it didn't work for him. I can't imagine 2" rise working without longer cables.

Anyone have a part number on the SW-Motech, trying to hunt one down. Would like an inch riser, or any riser that doesn't require new cables.

Thanks
