Honda CB500 1995 N Reg Bars Raising

Hi, just wondered if it was feasable to raise the bars on my CB500 and what I needed to do it. I've seen some bar Risers on E-bay but any advice would be usefull.  I wondered if a raise of three inches was likely to be any use to me. I get a lot of pain in my right thumb as things are at the moment through leaning forward with my weight on my wrists / thumbs. Regards.

Welcome canberra,3" will help but are the cables hydraulic pipes long enough?

Are your levers in line with your arms? 

Looks like the older model shown may do or the other extreme.:shock:

Bar risers

For that machine you will not need bar risers.  (Which are usually replacement clamps)  There are lots of companies that manufacture replacement handlebars of all different shapes and sizes so you should be able to get a set that suits you withour changing the clamps.

Check out M&P's website.
