stabilizer AND bar risers? can it be done?

Hi guys. I searched a bit but can't find if this has come up before...
I'm wanting to add a stabilizer , as I hear that's an important safety upgrade on my 929, but I also want to bring the bars at least three inches up and back. My old back just doesn't want to lean ahead that far!!
I keep reading that there can be problems doing both. If somebody has figured this out, I'd sure appreciate the help before I start ordering stuff to Vancouver Island.

Re: stabilizer AND bar risers? can it be done?

Don't know about the 929.

I've done this on my SRAD and my 97 918.

I love sports-bikes but not the riding position. Its a lot of work, all sorts of things come into play. You need longer cables and brake lines. Different mirrors etc.

The worst thing is that there is not much clearance for your hands and avoiding cutting the fairing is very difficult. I managed it on my 918 but easily spent 100 hours over the job. I have good facilities and can manufacture a lot of bits myself.

Sorry can't be more help but I haven't done a 929 (yet!).

Re: stabilizer AND bar risers? can it be done?

thanks Pete. I see a stabilizer installed in the pic from the Adjustibars site so I think I'm just gonna order and hope. I'm not really sure where the problem even lies. Looks like they should work together. I think it'll be an awesome bike for me after those two changes. Love the honda 900's!!!!!!!

Re: stabilizer AND bar risers? can it be done?

hey man idk if you found a solution to what you wanted but check out these adjustable clip ons. they will give you your height and be able to run a stabilizer. a lot of stunt guys use them but they're very versatile for more comfortable riding. This is what i have on mine and it's almost like having dirt bike bars, just more customizeable and you probably won't have to cut your upper. you're going to need longer cables and stuff though.

Aww man I'm sorry. There are other companies out there with a more reasonable price range. These are on the upper end but well worth it. I know that driven racing makes some, convertibars does as well, I think vortex has some and a company called sick innovations. I also know a guy in Poland who makes these too. Let me see if I can get a hold of him and see what he's charging for them.

Re: stabilizer AND bar risers? can it be done?

woodcraft 3"risers, new cable, GPR stabilizer now installed. Cost me 1300 though! I've realized now that there is a linear type and radial type stabilizer so no prob having radial type and risers. Thanks for the input guys! It looks great and the 3" of rise helps my 41 year old back immensely . Now for insurance ...its warm and sunny on Van Island

I wish I was 41 again! I'm 65 and still have the strength and fitness I had when I was in my 20's. 3 years ago I had 6 hour operation to fit a complete mechanical knee and now have the agility I had when I was 20 also. I reduced my weight by 50lbs to maximise the outcome and have kept it off.

My wife left me for a 65 th birthday present. The only problem I have is that on the Internet dating, all I get is fat old ladies........ha ha!

Oh to be 41.......

Enjoy your bike. I will be out tomorrow.

Pete
