SW-Motech Handlebar Risers

So I just installed the risers last night in about 5-10 minutes. Seemed like an easy job. Having never done it before, though, I'm wondering if there will be any issues with the wiring and cables going to the brakes and throttle? No tightness when turning? I couldn't do much last night in terms of turning the front wheels as it was up on stands but I figured people here would know if anything gets tight on the cables after installing a riser block.

You won't have any issues with the cables or wiring. I had the SW-Motech Risers before i replaced them with the Motowerks Anti-Vibe Risers...

!+ Ditto.

My Rox 2" Riser work with standard cable length.

But I did have to put a bit of PVC tubing on the clutch cable as it was rubbing on the stock Bar riser and taking off the paint.
