Indy 500, I have a rox 2" riser. How much you willing to spend. I still have the switchback for you. It has 2- 2" risers stacked on it.

I have made a few, I had some aluminum blocks laying around, just cut them to 2'' or so and drilled some holes. The only thing I had to buy is some longer bolts. If you have the material I say make one, but otherwise they are not that expensive for just block risers

I would just buy one, I'm sure you can get a 2" riser for about $25.

I've got a 3 inch riser I'll sell you for $10 plus shipping. It's a Powermad. From Shadetree. I used it on my 2002 RMK Trail for a while.

i heard that there's a good chance that a 3 inch riser would need cable extensions. i would go with something bigger but i'm not gonna spend money on cable extensions

I can't say for sure, but I bet if you just go under the hood, and pull the cables and wires out of the holders, you'll be just fine. Then just use zip ties to tidy up.

i looked at my cables and they're pretty short as it is i would be afraid of trying to go 3

Indy 500, you worry to much! Reroute the cables a little then re-zip tie them. The 3" riser is fine. I stacked 2 2" risers (because I had them) with no problems. zimmbob is giving you a great deal.

If the riser is too tall, find a local machine shop to take off some material untill it works with your cables. Would only take a few minutes, shouldn't cost much.
