    As Triumph have been so stingy with the length of cables has anyone gone to the trouble of fitting a bar riser and new cables to their Street Twin or paid to have it done? I love my ST but my wrists are suffering and I think the riser will be the solution. Tia

    Hi Betty, I can't believe you haven't had any replies to your question, I only saw it as it came up while I was searching on the net for the same thing. I've just bought a speed twin but not picked it up yet but I was going to contact the following people once I've got it, perhaps you could contact them, as you already have your bike, https://www.squaredeals-ltd.co.uk/s...leh11103-20mm-25mm-30mm-up-options-7121-p.asp

    Thanks for your reply..... I had a word with my local Triumph dealer and had Scrambler bars fitted, not cheap but I'm VERY happy with them

    Those risers would not fit the Street Twin as the handlebar clamps are set at an angle so check your Speed Twin handlebar clamps will be OK before buying. I got some 20mm risers for my Street Twin from a company called Raisch in Germany. They are very easy to fit, although a bit expensive at about £53 inc delivery.

    I settled on the following https://www.classicbike-raisch.de/e...1386/handlebar-lift-lc-20-30mm?number=CB11212

    My grip with all this sort of stuff is that we always have to search the world for solutions to small problems for British developed, designed and engineered products, be it motorcycles or anything else, that fail to take into account the very basic, but real, issues that could be so easily addressed with a little more contact with the target customers. This forum is full of these sort of issues but Triumph dose not take any notice, and I would bet no-one from Triumph ever even looks at the comments or issues raised by customers on this forum, if only they would they would gain a whole lot from the experience of members, and make a whole lot more in product sales and customer satisfaction.

    Hi, did they have to fit longer cables and wiring extensions or was there enough slack? Thanks.

    Hi. I have just bought some Scrambler bar's off the Triumph dealer. And mine won't fit. Too big. I'm wondering if he sold me the 1200cc Scrambler pair. Could tell me what size thickness they are please.
