The main thing is that you get a pivot style, so they go straight up, instead of angling back some.
I would like to put a pivot riser on my sled ,but I don't want to have to cut the steering column. Plus it would make the steering column weak and would probably make it easier to break. If I were going to put a pivot riser on my sled how tall of a riser do I get with out buying extensions and having to modify anything.

you can buy pivot adapters. The best way to find out how high you can go, is to unbolt your handlebars, pull them straight up and have someone measure the clearance. Then subtract 1/2" from that to be safe, and you have a good idea of what you can go.

Where do u measure from since the handlebar mount is at a 20 degree angle.

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

A side note on the 94 XLT, if the bars move up and down at all due to slop, then your mounts may be weakened.

On mine, the rivets that hold the mount to the tunnel are worn. To get to them I'll have to either pull the motor or pull the track, or both. Uhg.
