I have 1 2005 Warrior 1700PC, The owner I got the bike from put a really nice set to T handlebars on the bike. I have lower back issues and found out that the placement of the handlebars is tearing my back up on long drives. I need to move the handlebars back at least two inches, and up two. I am sure I am not the first to have this problem. Is there a set of risers and bars that will work with the stock cables? If not, what is a comfortable set up with risers, bars and cables. Help.

this is my set up, they are super sweep radius drag bars, and LA choppers 1 1/2 riser extensions. No the do not work with stock cables. and you might also want to think about a drivers back rest.

Thanks for the tips!

I think I will start with the riser extensions. That will move them up and back, and I may be able to use my cables. If not I will still install the extensions. Thanks for the tip.
FYI, I am planning on a different seat with a back rest. Add that all together and I believe I should be good. really like the bike, just need to set it up for 6'1" me.

These are the risers everyone is talking about. They are a great addition as they give you some up and some back. These are about 1-1/2" and stock cable and wiring worked with mine and I am using some Yami Double TT bars.

Also if you search some there are some other discussion to help you out.

Also if you modify your seat it will help you in the bum area.

Hi, I suffer from the same problem so this is what I did ( I also have rheumatoid arthritis in my right wrist ). I got a set of 9 inch pull back bars and I bought some 4 1/2 inch bent risers. Once I modded them up to see if they fit. I then removed the clutch cable from the frame. I then found that the original clutch cable fitted perfectly. I just used a loose zip tie for the cable so it wouldn’t flap around. I hope this helps.

Interesting, I just got my warrior and I dont think anything has been done with the bars. I was uncomfortable at first but got used to it so I am going to ride it for a few months before changing anything.

Keeping tabs on this thread just in case. Love this bike!

You can also loosen the handle bar clamps n move the bars forward or back for a better position

My 07 had the stock bars when I bought it and I found the riding position was a little too far leaning forward and hurt my neck after a while. I added the Barons 4.5" kick-back risers to the stock bars and it's perfect for me and it works with all the stock cables although the brake line is just barely long enough and under a little tension. I kept telling myself I'd change it after the first season but I'm going on 5 years and it's still holding together.
