Handlebars on Raider

I have looking at a 2008 Raider but I feel the position of the bar is a bit of a stretch for my i am 5'7 what is my best option to get the bars a little closer to me I looked at some risers that bolt to risers then bars go in them how much wire will i have or will the wires have to be lengthened.

I put bars from a 650 Custom on mine. You have to change the hydraulic lines and throttle cables. The cheapest and easiest is getting Rox Speed riser extensions. People have put the 2 inch ones on with the stock lines and cables.

Something you can try for *free* before going full aftermarket is,, rotate your factory bars downwards a bit. I did that to mine cause I didn't like the "reach" the way the bars were. But after rotating them downwards a bit I am now really pleased.

Try that first maybe?
