You didn't change out the cables or brake line? I put the Phat II risers on my 1500 and the throttle cables had to be taken out of the clip on the frame to not bind. I was under the impression that more than that would mean changing things out.
Polski, just thought i'd let you know that i put 9 inch mini apes on with 4.5inch pullback Phatt Risers. I love it and the only thing i changed was my brake line. Everything else, i was able to make work by relocating it all to the back of the triple tree.Redspot: I am also interested in mini-apes for my 900LT. The 9 inch or 10 inch rise is all I am looking for, but they are hard to find without paying an arm and a leg. There is one site, Khrome Works that seems to have a good variety and fair prices.
I dunno, maybe you could. All I know is that it took less than 1/2 hour to remove the tree cap n reroute. I was told to to it that way by 2 diff mechs and by a mech at Scootworks. Try it your way and let us know.Surely once you've pulled the controls off the bars, you could then remove your headlight, and then thread the controls and cables back through the triple trees?
Its been awhile so i may miss something here but if i remember correctly all i did was to raise the front of the bike off the ground and remove the center nut and loosen the 2 pinch bolts on the sides. I think i asked the guys at Scootworks, what the torque was for both. I also took the windshield off. Took about 30 minutes. Nothing had to be taken off for cables nor lines because it was all just rerouted to the back of the tree and then i used cable ties and i ordered special cable brackets ( chrome ) for some of it as well. I'm not saying that there isn't another or perhaps easier way. I'm just telling you guys how i did it.How hard was it to remove the top of the triple tree and locate the cables to the back of the tree?
