if you have some extra bars laying around stand on the sled and hold the bars comfortably, then have a buddy measure the height. im 6' and on my 86 indy 600 i am doing 8 inches from stock with some protaper se henry/reed bend mx bars (about a 2 inch rise from just the bars, so 10" from stock)
it all depends on the riding youre doing but i am mostly doing pow and all mountain stuff
anything over 3" will need cable extensions. look on ebay for the powermadd extension, its like $30. powermadd also make riser blocks and the 8" one i wanted was $50. if you get new bars be looking to spend about $60 min. for some new ones.
all said and done youre looking at a $150-200 project, but it will be SO worth it
