No, you don't have to. I did it on mine and it feel great when riding.

Just talked to the dealer where I purchased the bike   They keep telling me that the cables are not long enough to put the risers on. So that they can not do this. thanks for all responses, guess I have to find a new service shop.

I have the 2" Heli-Bar risers on my '09 Concours 14, but I had to drill and tap the right side riser to mount the front brake hose like the clutch hose is mounted.  Didn't take long and works a lot better.  Bob.

I am curious about HELI Risers--specifically the 2 inch risers--will they work on 2008 Connie---does anyone have these?

I just installed on my bike tonight (Murphs Risers) very nice quality. The only question it looks like there is plenty of slack on the right line but the left is fairly tight, doesn't look like it makes much difference because it doesn't move from the bar to the mount (guide) but it almost looks to me like I could rotate the line outwoard on the handle bars which would give it more, there is a bolt there mounting it to the bars but I don't know if I undue that I'd leak something?

My bike came with them on (2009 bought used).  I took them off.  Don't know what make they are.  They are a little over 1.5" high.    Worked absolutely fine, I drove the bike with them on and it was just fine.  I just like a more agressive riding position.    If anybody wants them, I've got them listed on ebay ...     Used Risers - Concours 14  - Rat

I have heli risers on my 09 c14.  They have the 2 inch rise and 2 inch pull back.  I really like them.  I can't detect any difference in handling, but for me the comfort level has risen considerably.  There were no problems mounting them, just follow the instructions.  I can't see why they would'nt mount on  the 08, they are basically the same setup.    Reed

I got risers from Murph too. The install instructions seem simple except for the front break part. Do I need to remove the front break junction box mounted to the fork crown then reinstall it onto the riser?  UP

OK. Murph's risers install was easy. Looks good. Plenty of slack. You do have to relocate the clutch and break junction boxes to the risers. All parts included. Feels nice in the garage but a ride will tell the truth.    UP

I added Murph's bar risers on my 2009 C14 and it took about 30 minutes from start to finish.  Real easy.  They made a considerable difference in hand comfort on a 540 mile ride I did this last weekend.  I highly recommend them. :)

Got the Murphs risers for C14  on this weekend and what a difference!  The riding position is perfect for me now (5'8" tall)   Installing was relatively easy but be prepared to put some muscle into removing the Allen bolts that secure the bars!  Also, use a 6 point socket to remove the brake line holder.  I tried using the 10mm wrench that came in the tool kit and it was a disaster!  Also installed the Cee Bailey Ultra Tour windshield (see other post)

One more time. Murph's risers. 30 minutes to install. Same as everybody else said. Too bad my seat is in Florida. I'm really anxious to try them out.
