I have raised my handlebars 1 1/4” on my 07 XT225, I would like to go another 1 1/4”
anyone done that? is there enough slack in the electrical/mechanical attachments?
thx!

After a bit of searching, looks like the 2” Rox risers would give me another .8”
may try that….

I raised mine 7/8" via a $20 HYspeed riser kit. I recall pulling the tank and adjusting some clamps to insure there wasn't any binding in the various hoses and cables. The Rox riser has more adjustments if I'm recalling correctly.

I don't think you'll get 2.5" extra with the stock cables. I put 1.5" higher bars on mine and had to reroute a harness to make it work.
