Moving handlebars on top of triple clamp

Has anyone here attempted this? I've read about it being done as an alternative to the pricey Heli Bars. I've seen Two Brothers risers, but they cost almost $300. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Dave.

Any luck finding an answer?

Just wondering if you found out anything. I'd love to raise the bars on my '03 Falco a little and would appreciate an economical alternative.

Handle bar rise on Falco

Hi,

Yes I have done that!

Following must be done:

1) 40 mm longer front brake (upper part) and clutch hoses.
2) The allowable steering angle must be slightly reduced - otherwise the switches/contacts will severe hit the upper faring parts if turned fully to the stops. The steering angle can easily be reduced via making of two slightly larger screwed on aluminum stops at the lower triple clamp (but you must of course have access to a turning bench to do so).

PS: I could email photos?

Best regards
Jens (Denmark)

Thanks Jens. I will let you know if I decide to go that route and could use the photos.
