DX Handlebar risers ready to ship 10-16-12

We're happy to announce that the DX riser project is off the ground and we are taking orders for them They will start shipping on Tuesday 10-16-12.We all love the vrods but Unfortunately we are all not the same height and it makes some of us shorter guys have to really reach,,,, or if you're like me my back just cant take reaching for the bars for very many miles. SO,,, here's the solution!!!!The risers are 1.25" thick and come with new longer handlebar bolts and are powder coated black to match most of the bikes (if you want them polished just let me know). The riser is very easy to install (watch the video below) and even for a novice you can get it done in under an hour. After the install you will notice instantly how bringing the bars back to you helps the ride quality.
We have sold over a hundred of them for the VRSCF style and have finished ironing out the measurements and details to make them for the DX. The only issue we came across is on some DX models the front brake hose after the riser is installed doesn't have enuf slack in it to make full turns one way, and the fix was really simple (10 minute job). Its as simple as taking 3 Torx bolts out of the master Cylinder, taking the MC off the handlebar and sliding it thru the forks which puts it now on the back of the forks instead of on the front and then reinstalling the MC. Simple ten minute job that is very easy even for a novice to do

If you're interested we will be taking orders starting Friday morning (10-5-12). They will be 100$ powder coated and shipped to your front door. If you want one feel free to PM and I'll get you my paypal info. Thxs a bunch and RIDE SAFE. Paul

Riser install Video (its of a muscle but its the same setup virtually)

Moving the brake hose behind the forks

Sorry for the video being a little long and jumpy ,,,,, the simplest way to mave the cable is to just take the master cylinder off and sneak it thru the forks i wouldnt even try doing it the other ways,,,,,, really simple

All, I put this on my DX. Very easy to install and re-locate the front brake hose. I'm not very good with fixing things, and this was easy enough for a newbie like me. With the weather like the way it is in Chicago, I haven't had alot of riding time with it on, but initial rides seem to feel more comfortable.

Definately recommend!!

this is by far one of the single best and cost effective mods that can be done to increase rider comfort, sits you a little more up right and takes pressure off your hands and lower back and as an added bonus you can slide the forks up in the trees and lower the front end, as one of the first few to do this mod I highly recommend and would never change it out

Just installed mine a few hours ago and took 45 minutes tops. Went for a ride and can definitely tell a difference in the amount of reach. Used to slump over a bit but now it feels a lot better. This should be one of the first mods to do to any bike

Hands down this is the best mod for the money I have done on my bike. It is a easy install with great benifits. The bike should have been built with them installed.

Best mod out there for short reach guys. The only suggestion I have is to get 2 allen head bolts and replace the enclosed bolts it makes the install much easier. The replacement bolts means you dont have to fight the fork lock barrel.

thxs for the nice comments,,,,,,,,,,,, it does help the old back out for me as well..... the column lock is a little tricky. ive found turning the bars all the way to one side helps with that. Ride safe, paul

I have the 2012 V-rod 10yr anniversary edition so I imagine, it's all the same bike. This bike comes in Silver Metallic color and lots of chrome, can you chrome it or at least a polished silver to match the bike? Really interested so please let me know. Thanks and ride safe...

With this mod, will all the cables be able to accomodate or have enough slack and turn the handle bar with no issues? Thanks for your patience.

al, on some bikes the only issue has been the front brake hose being a touch to short so when you tunr the bars all the way its too tight.

So the simple fix there is to take the master cylinder and hose assembly off the right handle bar and slip it "behind/between" the forks. This will give it plenty of slack. All the other throttle cables, wiring and clutch hose all reach just fine. There is a quick video in the first post in this thread that shows me taking the master cylinder off and sneaking it between the forks, its just 3 torx screws to take it off,,, takes about 5 minutes to remove it, move it and install it again. thxs and ride safe,,paul

I got mine and installed and I really like it since it gives me that extra relief on my back from reaching or slight bending forward. Eventhough the install is a little complicated compared to the muscle since the VRSCDX has the turn signal and rearview mirror attached to the cylinder. But I was able to manipulate it and works out fine. Thanks again... Ride safe.
