I bought my 900 used and it came with 2.5" risers, 10" mini-apes and 14" cables installed. I am wanting to change up the bar for something like the Barons Starbar. My question is this: will the extended cables be a problem for a shorter bar setup?

Thanks!

Well, I got a wild hair and turned the risers around. Talk about an improvement! The bar is a bit taller and forward which makes the grip angles much better for my wrists.

Guess I don't need to shop for another.

That's thinking outside the box. Now we know why you are CRAZYriderguy. Very clever. And, if it works for you, then it is the right thing to do!

My original plan was to swap for stock risers off my dad's 1700. However, after discovering his bolts were slightly bigger, I decided to try mine reversed. I'm glad I did it, too. The change raised the bar a bit and pushed them forward a bit which produced a better grip angle.
