This may be an elementary question, but here goes: I am thinking of installing 2" risers on my 2011 TW in order to get maybe a more comfortable position. I haven't ordered any yet, but upon looking at the cable slack and routings, I'm wondering if will work without major cable work.
Some here have mentioned re-routing the cables. Do you have to disconnect them to do that? And where. Do you re-route them? There doesn't seem to be all that much room.

2" risers are a common no-hassle popular modification. I would recommend 2" risers for greater comfort and control both seated and when standing on the pegs.

These are the best risers in the world. Made in USA. I chose to reroute my cables to the outside of the handlebars, but it probably is not necessary. Nobody should buy any other risers than these.
2 inch pivot risers for 7/8 bars. Order them today so you can get them on your bike and ride before it snows. You can do wheelies easier with risers. Real benefit- When you upgrade the appearance and function of your bike with a Clarke tank (which everyone should do), your bars will clear the tank. This is big. I had to replace my risers (1.25 inch up and 1.25 inch back). This is the right p/n also.

any idea if these PowerMadd 45430 PowerRiser 475 - 2" Tall X 4.75" Wide, 7/8" bars to 7/8" bars will fit the TH200 handlebar clamps spacing? Think I'd feel better with a one-piece design. They are $ 55.51 at Amazon. Thanks for comments
Its to cold up here for my wife to ride the TW so I put my 2" Rox risers back on. What a difference. Gee I hate sharing my TW.
Yam200 - I have that same riser, PowerMadd 475. I bought it from amazon too and have been riding with it nearly a year. It fits just fine and no issues with needing to change cable length or routing. Really helped my hand position (I'm 6'3"). Easy install and no problems since. Enjoy if that's the way you go.

Thanks Eric - a bit late with my reply, sorry. The 475 is in the mail. Can't wait to get it mounted.
mounted the 475 without problems and cables were long enough. Trying to fond the best position: moving the handle bars towards the front or back. Guess is a matter of comfort and control for each individual. Have them straight for now.
