Me, being the thrifty person that I am, didnt want to spend a lot of money on a full bar riser kit right now. I decided to purchase the "High Riser" bar fix kit off of 50ccracing.com.
First of all, Jeff has GREAT customer service. He answers any questions you may have, and he ships promptly. Its nice to get service like that these days.
The kit itself was $35 shipped. It took about 2 days to recieve it. All you get is the metal bracket and the nuts and bolts. Instructions wouldnt have been a bad idea, but they are on the site where you order from so its not a huge deal. Not to mention the install is cake!
Tools required for install.
-A pair of Channel Locks wrench for removing the cap on the carb.
-A 12mm wrench/socket for the stock nuts.
-A 13mm wrench/socket for the new nuts.
-A #8 Allen wrench for the new bolt. (If I remember correctly.)
The first thing you need to do is reroute the Throttle cable so that it runs down the right side of the frame. Be sure to run it between the the fork tubes then down the right side of the frame. This will prevent binding when you turn the bars. To just unscrew the cap from the carb use the Channel Locks, mine came loose really easy. Pay attention to how the spring assembly comes out of the carb!
If you dont it may take you several minutes to get it back in properly. I can tell you this from experience. Once you have installed the cap. Twist the trottle to make sure it moves properly. If you didnt install the spring assembly properly the trottle wont twist back, also make sure it springs back shut. I rerouted the cable a few days before the kit came. If you wait until you get the kit it will probably be a little easier to install the cap after the kit is isntalled.
To install the kit, just remove the two nuts from the bottom side of the triple tree. Just flip the bars forward to give your self room to install the bracket. Install the bracket with the curved side mounted to the triple tree. This is really obvious when you look at it. I found it easier just to hand tighten everything first then once the bars are mounted tighten everything down.
Now for my thoughts. This is an awsome mod for the money! They say it will withstand serious abuse. I doubt I will be getting big air anytime soon, especially until I get some suspension. I was doing stoppies and wheelies and didnt feel the bars flex at all. There is plenty of room. I can now turn the bars without them hitting me in the knees. I was even riding standup wheelies. Definately not something you could do with the stock setup. It moves the stock bars up 1.5 inches and forward 1.5 inches.
I highly recommend this mod for anyone on a budget. If you have to share the 50 with your son or daughter this mod is perfect! You can switch it back to stock in less then 5 minutes!
