AST riser installation question
« on: December 01, 2017, 07:53:32 pm »
I purchased a pair of AST risers (the standard, not the pullback variety) from another member and I have a question about installation for those who have them. In the written instructions it references either opening, or disconnecting from the bike, the plastic looms that route the clutch and brake lines, but in the installation video on the AST website it does not reference the looms at all.  The video only shows rotating the banjo bolt. For those who have these risers, is it necessary to mess with the plastic looms at all? Thank you!

you have to as long as you relocating the metal boxes to the risers. btw, not a big deal, I will give you a suggestion, just clip the bottom plastic pin from the plastic loom rings that attached to the metal supports just next to the fork. Reach them from the bottom.

when I did mine (they were the pullback style), I loosened the bolt and relocated the little boxes that hold the clutch and brake lines. They should be fairly easy to do. Send me a pm if it is giving you grief!  :great:
