Hello friends ,

If I keep stock handlebars , and I install Star part STR-5PX75-50-08 risers , will I need more length on brake hose , cables and wiring ?

I don't see any measurements for those risers. From the pix, they look pretty tall. The wiring should be fine, there is a bit of slack in the headlight bucket. The clutch and throttle cables might be long enough but I think the brake line will be short. Of course, if the risers are shorter than they look, you might not need to change anything.

Never run out of traction, ideas, and real estate at the same time.

Thank you blueroadstar .

I agree . IMHO risers are at least 4 in. over stock R* parts , with 1.5 in. pullback .
