Up & Over Risers by Motone

I decided to go with Up & Over Risers by Motone - 1" up and 1" back. I just don't think that I can get used to taller bars. Anyway, I will see how the Up & Over Risers work.

If anyone has installed these installation tips would be welcomed.

Hi @gfspencer ,

I recently installed the Motone up/overs. I personally not like the look of pull-packs but needed them for comfort and correct positioning and for that they have worked great for me.

The fitting was easy enough, although a little tight getting under the top yoke.

My main gripe was that they are not compatible with the Triumph clamp, but I just opened up the holes and it's working fine.

Overall though an easy mod and reversible if you don't like it. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Cheerio,

Roy

I like the risers a lot but whilst sitting back at the lights the other day, an alarming detail came into my vision. I thought something had come lose. But no - it appears something is adrift with the risers.
Will you guys sit back and check yours please before I go to Motone.

Hi @chezqui ,

Could you elaborate, so I know what I'm looking at?

I looked at your photo but can't see any issue.

Cheerio,

Roy

Hi Roy

If you look at the top of the fork legs and the awful plastic nuts, the bars aren't square to the yolk.

I expect you were focusing on the cr*p in the background

It does look like your bar isn’t square with the forks and instrument cluster.

I see what you mean now, that does indeed look odd.

I checked mine (see pic) and they seem to line up spot on.

I would pull your risers off and lay one on top of the other to see if they match up as a pair.

Cheerio and good luck.

Roy

I’d guess at one of the risers not seated correctly...

No disrespect but I did an aircraft technician apprenticeship. 4 years to learn to do just about everything to build and service a passenger jet plane... and I did watch the vid
