    Help, handlebar risers?

    I want to switch to a set of bars and sit up a little straighter.

    I can't seem to find a vendor for any options for an '06 600 Kat. I just got an email back from spiegler and they said they don't make a kit.

    Any body know anyone else, or have any good methods of doing a home job. I want it to be safe and proper.

    I have seen a couple good set ups for 750's but they have different triple trees.

    Lemme know, thanks in advance.

    Did you changed or modified the Clutch, Choke and Gas cables ?

    That's what you look like after buying a set of their converti-bars and then realizing you could have gotten the same effect for less than half the price?

    If you haven't spent any money yet you might want to contact these guys: http://www.spec2.com/clips.html

    Their Profi clip-ons are very adjustable and run about $150 from the manufacturer. Contact them with the fork diameter (41mm for yours, I think). I had their bars on my '84 Interceptor and they were terrific. Two allen-head bolts to get full adjustability from low and forward for bombing around the backroads to high and back for long-distance touring (like from Seattle to Houston).

    Oh, and no messing around with drilling the triple-tree. They just clamp around the fork tubes.

    Yeah, that's the trouble. I have a 600 and the triple tree is totally different. The 600's have less options.

    Hate to jump in and ask the same things but, Is it my understanding that u can put a 98-06, 750 triple tree on a 600 and get a 2inch rise? I want risers but dont wanna spend alot of money for just a 1inch or so.

    It was way easier than I thought, but if your center spread on your bars is narrower than mine, you will have to drill the triple tree for the clamps. I used the factory handle bar mount holes.

    And no more sore neck for me. I can go 8 hours now. Go for it!

    Here's the listing pic of the bar. Looks like I'll have to do something for bar ends, but that's easy enough. Won't be able to work on it until we get back from Iraq. Other than what the wife will have on the to-do list, this will be on the top of mine.

    Jet- thanks again for your help to know what the best measurements are for center width, etc. It's pretty hard to figure out when your bike is 6500 miles away!
