2008 hammered grey
I put 2" risers on and have the stock cables. I didn't flip the throttle. rerouted the cables a bit and got them to sit just under the top triple tree bearing and it is working fine.

|Hagan||I have the same risers as Tom except black and can confirm they do in fact fit on my '18. Had to flip the throttle but I think that was it.|

Thanks for the picture.
I am going to try angling the levers down a bit from the stock position to see if that helps with the standing ergos. After that I should be able figure how much of a riser I need.

Pretty much rising back in the same line as the stock.

Generation 1; 1.5"; stock cables with some handlebar bracket adjustments.
Whatever risers and cables you use . . . make sure lock-to-lock handlebar rotation does NOT perturb the "choke" (starting enricher); the slightest nudge of the "choke" will kill a warmed KLR650 engine at idle.

Thanks, I had to look at my bike to see what you meant by a "flipped throttle" before it became obvious.
Are your bar risers at an angle or more vertical?

Bar Riser Height Question
Does anyone know how high you can go with bar risers without having to get longer cables?
I need somewhere around 1 -1.5 inches of bar height to make the standing position comfortable. JNS lowering plates are already installed.
