Two inch bar risers for the ZX-14

There will be no need for adjustment on the stock front suspension because I will be removing the forks for the sidecar project.

I believe I could modify to allow adjustability of the front suspension for two wheelers.




Also requires one hole to be drilled in the handle bar and one piece of the master cylinder reservoir bracket to be removed.

Two inches is all there is.
Not only two inches tall, it is also about 3/4" closer too.
Any more , you need to cut the fairing or dent the gas tank.
You would need longer cables too.
Maybe a little more if you want to do some major fabrication or modifications.
It will never have the seating position of an FJR 1300, but it is better.

Bill,

Are you going to do a swingarm front end like the Bandit, or a A-arm like your Blackbird?

Like the Bandit.

Seems to work really well, easier to fabricate and adjustable trail.
