I acquired the bar raisers while I have been digging them around from the people who still have parts or selling parts from their old ineherited X bikes.
On a recent trip to NL, I was lucky to find a donor and it was very interesting, landing up at someone house at the middle of night and going through their stash of X treasure. Is kind of thing, you won’t do at all in normal cases but there is nothing normal in my case ever.
I managed to grab a bit more than just the bar raisers, in this case a much desired a metal bar for the handlebar, and a sensor, if I may ever need it again, who knows, these parts become more of rare ones to find with time. I didn’t know what I was getting into when I bought this bike but this has been ever increasing investment ever since.
Along the process, of acquiring these parts, I also become friends with the donor, in this case the circle of friendships continue along its journey.
So as my donor(now a new friend), mentioned it to me – I may need adjustment with the routing of the throttle cable, I have not needed it but I plan to do this in future. I was able to add the bar raisers fairly without much struggle.
Photos below: fairly a simply swap, so far
But something that was mentioned above – the re-routing of the throttle cable is required. I realized this only, when the bar was completed turned towards the right side, this increase the throttling on its own. I didn’t experience any issues while riding since, such turns are never possible unless you are in the sad part of unavoidable crash! I leave this to the next time when I will have to completely remove the airbox. I will combine this with the next big work when all plastics needs to come off.
Hi, did you manage to re route the throttle cable? Was it difficult and would you be able to share the steps? I have the same issue also because of the bar raisers. Thank you!
Hey Niccolo, It was the same routing – I didn’t have any issues with bar raisers.
Neither did I have any issues with clutch cable. I simply put the raisers on the existing cable mounts, nothing was needed.
