Riser install went well. Yes I do have ABS. I had to reroute the clutch cable and bend the bracket that was in the way of the brake hose. The brake hose is still just a tiny bit short and at full left lock is the tiniest bit snug. It is probably fine but I will likely get a slightly longer one.
I got a set of roaringtoys lowering links used on eBay. They have several holes for lowering in half inch increments. I chose .5" because it meant I didn't have to alter the kick stand. I think having the rear down a little actually makes it look better too.
The ReGrips are designed for thinks like shovels etc. They go over the existing grips and have this piece that pulls out to snug them down. Very cushy.
Google re-grip for their site.
I'm also planning on installing newgen ninja 250 pegs as they are rubber cushioned and getting the seat either modified or replaced.
Thank you for the quick reply and info.
I already do have a set of risers, but due to some health issues, I have not been able to ride or even do any work on my bike.
From the video's I have watched and from what other folks have told me, I should only have to bend that wiring / hose bracket to give the brake hose enough room for movement. I really doubt that I would have any problems with it as I very seldom ever go from stop to stop with the steering. The bike would either be sitting in my garage, or I would be sitting on it for a ride.
I already looked at the Regrip site. I just wanted to make sure that I was not missing anything.
Rubber cushioned pegs sound like a great idea and thus far nobody has ever mentioned changing them out.
The foot rests on my Yamaha V-Star 950 are both rubber and spring mounted. No vibrations noticed with them.
I have already changed out the seat for a factory GEL seat. But as stated, I have not been able to ride the bike, thus no report is available.
Once again, thank you for you advise .............
