Put them on yesterday. Fit was good. Had to reroute clutch cable behind the triple tree. FuelPak still isn't here. Maybe tomorrow. That's all I like having it set up. It was tough getting the stock risers off because the nut underneath is hard to get to but I managed..............:D

I know that now is not a good time to tell you this but if you had just put the wrench on the nut and stuck a pipe in the old riser you could turn it with no problem. Then hold the nut and unscrew the riser.

Putting the new ones on is sorta the same. A set of metric crowsfoot wrenches solves the problem nicely. Hold the nut and screw the riser into it until it bottoms out. Install the bars to keep the risers straight and then tighten the nuts.

Put an extension in the crowsfoot and a ratchet on the end and tighten it one flat at a time.

Better late than never.

I made it work with an open end wrench and when I got to work I ground down a short socket to fit on the nuts. Tightened them up and it's all good in the hood now.............:D
