    Adjusting the Ergonomics on a 2012 Speed Triple

    Hello,

    I've search quite a bit but am a total Noob on the Speed Triple. I'd like to move the riding position 1" up and 1" back on my 2012 Speed Triple.

    I found this site that looks hopeful:

    Spiegler Performance Parts - Riser Clamps | RiseUp Clamps | Motorcycle Handlebar Clamping

    Can someone recommend which one I need? I assume I need the 7/8 ones.

    Can I accomplish this with a bar replacement as well?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    No you need the 1 1/8, the bars are tapered. I've raised mine an inch and back a quarter inch with Rizoma risers. You'll need to unhook the clutch cable from its wire restraint on the side of the headstock to free up some extra length.

    Thank you for the reply. Did you get the Rizoma 60MM risers?

    This site seems to measure ergo changes for bikes FYI:

    If I remember rightly they were AZ302B or similar. They're billed as 60mm but that's measured from the base to the seat. In reality they produce an uplift of about 25mm. It's astonishing what a difference that inch makes - ooer matron!!

    I think these would work:

    Spiegler Performance Parts - RiseUp Spacer Blocks for 1 1/8"

    I measured center to center on the mounting bolts and it is 39 mm. It looks like you install them under your stock bar clamps for a 30mm lift, nothing back though.

    I just put these on yesterday and they are they best you can buy. Made by Southwest; they give you 1 inch rise and 1.25" pull or visa versa. Either way, I'm totally upright and comfortable now. I bought mine in silver!

    Handlebar riser barbacks & top clamps for 28mm bars - pair, 1.25" rise & 1" pullback - TwistedThrottle.com


    PS: Your bars are measured as 1 1/8" or 28 mm, better know as "Fat Bars" because they are fatter in the middle to absorb vibrations and they tapper out to 7/8" at the hand grip. The bars are also thicker then regular 7/8" bars so the bar end weights have to have a smaller diameter anchor to fit inside these fat bars. ( a whole nother story)

    Nice Rayzor! How much slack was there for the cables/wires etc? I mean what do you figure is the maximum rise/pullback potential with stock lines?
    Cheers!

    I would say this is about the max they can be pulled back. If it were not for the stingy clutch cable, you could pull um back another 1.5 inches
