Handle bar risers

Apparently my old age has caught up and I need some handle bar risers for my 2001 KLR 650 to help with my neck issues.

I was thinking a modest 2 inches of rise and using the
Powermadd 475 pivoting risers.

Has anyone done this before and is there enough length in the cables & electrical to do this?

Thanks

Sandman

No not numb I get a headache after I ride
I am in the same position the physio people do not like when I am concentrating or staring at the computer monitor. So what I thinking of is a 2 inch lift then back closer to me this would straighten my neck out.... more of an upright position riding

I had them on my 14 and didn't have to change any cables. I think I just had to move the clutch cable a little.
