Handlebar Riser Kit for Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350cc 500 cc - 1" kit

WHY TO USE:

  • More upright position - better comfort for long distance touring
  • Adventure touring - stand up on the foot pegs and ride comfortably without crouching

FEATURES:

  • Supplied as a kit and DIY is possible at home with a good tool kit
  • Chunky aluminum riser blocks available in 1" increments
  • Hardened steel bolts for rigidity
  • Nyloc nuts for safety

KIT CONTENTS:

  • 1 inch height aluminum cylinders made for the RE TB design - 2 nos.
  • M10 bolts (long for 1" installation) with nyloc nut set - 2 nos.
  • Liquid thread locker 4ml bottle

OPTIONS:

  1. One inch riser kit (this product) - provides adequate level of vertical rise for most risers. Does not require any cable re-routing. DIY possible.
  2. Two inch riser kit (search for RLP0198) - provides higher level of vertical rise for true adventure class or dedicated off road riding. Requires a major cable re-routing effort and changes. With this kit both 1" and 2" rise is possible as per your preference.

INSTALLATION:

  1. Removal
    1. Remove the 4 bolts holding the handlebar cap
    2. Remove the handlebar from the handlebar base holder
    3. Remove the two nuts under the top triple clamp - 17mm spanner needed
    4. Remove the two long bolts and the handlebar base holder
  2. Installation
    1. Ensure the base rubber protection rings are placed back in the same sequence
    2. Insert the longer bolts (supplied with the kit) into the stock handlebar base holder, into the cylinder spacer, into the top stock rubber spacer rings, into the top triple clamp, into the bottom stock rubber spacer rings
    3. Use the nyloc nut to bolt the nut and tighten to 35 N-m torque (this is important to avoid loosening and any risk to rider). Thread locker not needed as the bolt is nyloc
    4. Seat the handlebar into the handlebar base holder
    5. Install the handlebar cap with the 4 stock bolts (replace bolts if threads are damaged). Use a small drop of liquid thread locker (included in the kit)
    6. Adjust handlebar position as per rider preference. Ensure that no cables are being pulled. Do not tighten the 4 bolts as yet.
  3. Testing & finalize
    1. Start the engine in neutral and move the handlebar to both right and left extreme positions. Check that the engine rpm remains constant. If there is change in engine rpm, adjust handlebar position to forward to provide some play to the throttle cables
    2. Repeat above test again while pumping the front shock absorbers by putting weight in the front and moving the handlebar at the same time.
    3. Once satisfied that the rpm is constant tighten completely the 4 bolts to 19 N-m torque in the sequence as per bike service manual.
    4. Test ride the bike with full riding gear in a safe area to ensure that its operating normally under all conditions
    5. After 200kms of riding, check all bolts for tightness
    6. Inspect at every service interval
  4. Notes for a 2" riser installation
    • A major cable rerouting will be needed for using the 2" riser kit. The 1" spacer cylinders can be stacked on each other for the 2" rise and installed with the kit provided longer bolts. Ensure the cable routing is safe and done with consultation of a RE qualified service engineer.

CAUTION:

Improper installation can lead to serious rider injury. Practice riding the bike in controlled conditions after any major change to the bike, like the installation of this product.
