Handlebar risers

My friend has an 02 xcsp 600. He would like to install a riser on his sled, but he doesn't want to have to extend all of the cables. Can someone tell me the maximum riser extension he can go without cable extensions? Thanks in advance!

I'm no expert but most people generally say 2 inches, some will tell you 4 inches with some rerouting of cables.

On my 99 Sport i was able to do a 3.5" rise and all cable and wires were fine and moved freely, im not sure if i would go much higher than that though..

3.5 is good. 4" you will probably need to get the powermadd throttle extender. $30

And if your not caring about the looks of your sled or being judged, just do what i did. Find some 4 pieces, of 1/2 inch, 3 1/2 inch long cast iron pipe, 4 6" bolts, and some washers and you have yourself a handlebar riser for about 8 bucks depending on where you go! Ill admit its not pretty at all but its better than having the handlebars sittin on my knees while im riding. Ill see if i can find a pic...
