CB500X handlebar risers
on: July 20, 2020, 09:34:59 AM
Hi all,

I've recently installed handlebar risers on my bike. I wanted slightly more upright position as I often found myself leaning forward too much, and I wanted my hands to be closer to the body so they can rest freely on the handlebars.

So far I'm happy with the risers, they are a little on a pricey side but I think build quality is very good.

If you're considering handlebar risers I can recommend these.

They look really well made and I'd like to add these to a 13x, however I guess there's no way to know if you'd need to extend cables and hoses in advance - unless anyone else has done this?

This looks like what he has
https://voigt-mt.de/Handlebar-risers-with-offset-for-Honda-CB-500-X-PC46-13-16

But it is showing 13-16  so that will fit the 17/18 too.

They have a 2019-2020 with no rear offset but he put on the ones above on his 2020.

A bit confusing...so the 22mm is just the rise for the PC64 model ? Not the bar diameter?

22mm handlebar  - not the rise. 30mm up, 20mm back for the 13-18 year which should be very nice.

28mm handlbar 2019/2020 is 20mm up - no set back.

I saw they have on the website for '13 model too just not sure if longer cables needed.

did not see that .. put up link
If it's just 20 mm rise no set back then very unlikely needs cables.

30mm up - 20 back ....I'm taking a risk but want the risers anyway.

Jenny from Rally Raid suggests that 20mm up is the limit for pre 19 bikes in terms of cables and hoses. I'd love it these came in 20mm up and back, but it looks like 30mm only in that configuration
