Go to town on them with a file. Also use a washer between the stock handlebar and the riser, it'll space it out 1-2mm. I did both. Finally, move the perches closer to the switchgear. Now I have more than enough room.
Any possible way you could post up a photo? I like the idea of the washer. I'd love to find a little more width as well.Go to town on them with a file. Also use a washer between the stock handlebar and the riser, it'll space it out 1-2mm. I did both. Finally, move the perches closer to the switchgear. Now I have more than enough room.
How about removing the pin? That would allow more forward sweep and by moving forward I could get more space in the **** pit. In addition, moving them forward would also allow me to get my controls down.I didn't take any pics when I did it. Assembled, it's hard to see the modification. Basically, I took the corner off where the clutch perch hit on the left and where the MC hit on the right. I wouldn't add more than one washer per side. You still need the pin to sit in the slot.
I know this is an old thread but I just purchased and installed the riser kit on my 2022 SX 1000.So..here I am with a new-to-me 8k mi 1000SX and short arms (5'4" tall) and a new set of Murph's Risers.
The lever angle was not acceptable to me and my short arms require help so here's what I did:
I re-drilled the index hole for the switch gear to move it OUT and rotate AWAY a little, this let me move the perch and rotate the clutch DOWN to where it works for me (left the pin IN and removed the metal cable adjuster lock thingy).
I ground the perch under the brake fluid reservoir to allow the brake lever to rotate down as well.
All seems well but time will tell.
