Default Pull-Back Risers for '05 Roadster?

Has anybody swapped out their stock handlebar risers for some pull-back risers (3" to 4-1/2")? I am wondering if such risers can be installed without increasing the lengths of any cables or wiring.

Thanks in advance.

i changed my risers and put drag bars on... did not change my cables... you would have to extend the wires if you want to mount your gauges on the risers...

Leo,

What length/height risers did you change to?

Thanks...
