I just ordered the 1" genmar bar risers for my capo. If you have put any 1" bar risers on your bike I would like to find out if the cables are going to be long enough. Looking at them...with the stock bar height....it looks.....close!
Thanks for you reply.

I'm 6'3" and put the Genmar risers on. Cables are plenty long enough. I only put the ones on that raise the bars. Not the ones that also offset the bars more toward the rider. Someone had posted before that the cables wouldn't stretch that far. My mirrors have now become more useful. Before they were turned up to the max and I still had to dip my head to use them. They are now centered much better.:)

Touratech also sell bar risers and they are 1/3 of the price of the Genmar ones.

See www.touratech.de and look under "Modifications" then "Special Parts".

Yep, I've got the 1" Genmar riser on my Capo, and the cables are fine. I got and attempted the 1" up + 1" back version, and the cables were NOT long enough, so I had to return it for the plain 1" up ones.

I looked and they have various "kits". What part number did you order for your Capo? TIA

Ordered my 1" risers! Still not 100% comfortable as I think I should be on this bike, hopin this does the trick.

I bought the lower seat also for early season riding (don't want to get the leather seat wet). Feels like a chopper:D

Does anybody know what the bolt dimensions are center to center. Or if you have the touratech risers which ones did you order?

For those of you who have the 1" risers, do you think there is enough slack to raise them up to 1 3/8"?
