    The clutch cable appears to have little to no slack allowing for bar risers. Do you have to lift up the gas tank to get a little slack? How tall of a riser has worked for those that have done it, and what did you do about cabling?

    I did 25mm bar risers from SW Motech. No issues with Cabling. You can see them if you look closely. I found I likeld the setup better without the rise so I took them off.

    I've put risers on almost every bike and found them to be really comfortable. May I ask your height and what didn't you like about the rise on these bikes?

    Edit: btw, great choice on the Milano, awesome set up!

    Hey, Thanks Scott. Went to a business meeting today on it. Saw someone out on a Nightpack or Special. A frightening (to my back account) amount of bits and pieces since that pic was taken. Need to get a new one.

    I'm just under 6'3" and a large guy in general. The risers pushed me back a little and I've decided I like the slight forward lean I have now. Tried them with the bars in a few positions but ultimately felt like i was fixing a problem I don't have. I have upper back/shoulder pain anytime I sit in one position too long. Not the bikes fault. If I had shorter arms I would likely benefit from the risers.
