Hello all,

New to your forum and to my '08 700. I hope this is the right place for question...
I Want another 2" (don't go there!) of handle bar rise, and want the 1 1/8" bars, so what's the smarter way to go a new chrome-moly stem +2" or the Rox 2" Elite Anti-Vibration Risers?
Either way I need to relocate the ignition so it's the DRD reverse lever +2" cable then from what I read I can simply drill the plug and mount switch in old reverse fender hole.

Thanks for input,
Chris

Yeah you can just drill the plug for the key in the fender or just buy the whole kit from tqsatv which has the reverse lever and a billet plug that goes into the fender which looks better.
Also the antivibe risers are nice and are sweet to have for sure. That being said, your oem stem is a piece of shit. They bend really easy and if you ever roll her then your going to end up replacing it anyway with something tougher. I just build them myself out of 1 1/4" 1/8" wall chromoly whatever length I want. If your handy with a welder then just make one. Here is one I just finished for another guy on here.

It depends what your goal is. I've tried both stem and Rox anti-vibe risers. The anti-vibe risers reduced vibration more than my stem did.
