I just put on a new Tag steering stem +1 with Pro Taper SE Raptor Bend 7/8" bars. Now the clutch cable and brake hose are tight. Is this normal? Will I have to get longer cables?

I think your going to want to be going with a shorter rise handle bar.

Yes if you went with a +1 stem you needed to go with a bar that is more like the CR hi bar. It has less rise. Or you can buy new cables. It would probably be cheaper to sell the bars you have and pick up a bar that has the lower rise. I think Rockymountainatv.com has a chart with all of the heights.

I'm a taller rider at 6'4" so I like the feel of the high rise that I now have.
Can anyone tell me where I can get: 1. a longer brake hose, 2. a longer clutch cable, at a good price.

Thanks

Motion Pro has +2 clutch/ +2 throttle cables
their website has them listed in new parts, and they're a reasonable price
however, they don't have a listing for an extended parking brake cable, so you might need to move that and maybe even the switchbox...
you might even want to make the switch to aftermarket brake lines. I've seen some on ebay for $65, Chaparral has some for $63, and Rocky Mountain atv has Tusk brand for I think $58

I was looking into some Rox risers, but the Tusk risers that I have already stretch the cables quite a bit. They're still within spec when I turn full lock either way, but if I wanted to try more height on the bars, then that would be going too far.

I made a post about replacing the throttle cable in 'discussion', refer to it to see if it'd be worth your while to go that route. :thumbsup:

What are some bars that will fit nicely without changing any cables?

Should I go with Pro-Taper CR Mid bend or CR High bend?

Here is the info from Rockymountainatv.com
Compare to the cr hi and you should be fine.
This shows all the brands. I have a Tag +1 stem the Cr Hi in Pro Taper contours 1 1/8 bars. I am 5'10" 215 and I am happy with this setup.

Hey- Looks like I'm not the only "Big Mike" around here :thumbsup:.
I'll be going to get the bars today from a local shop.
Thanks for all your help guys.
Sure, when your incredibly good looking dating hot models was is easy for me,
but when it came to buying handlebars for my Raptor- I was stumped :confused:

Yes. Thanks.
I see you put the key switch where the reverse switch was- where did you move the reverse switch to?
I'll check the pics again to see if i missed it.
