Yeah thanks ill deffinatly give it a try im thinking they should fit. But I only have found longer brake lines on dennis kirk for my sled I dont know what to do about the throttle cable, and what do you do for hand warmers? just snip the wires and make them longer or what?

I don't know if you can get to anyone that deals with parts unlimited, but they offer a throttle cable extension that fits polaris and extends stock cables 10". Marshalls offers longer cables but only 2 3/4 inches. As far as the heaters, I would extend your wires. A couple of connectors and some shrink tubing should give you a nice job.

Yeah im gonna get the powermadd pivot riser so i will be able to put them up straight. thats a 3 inch rise just with that then i can get another 3 inch block and have it at 6. Be kinda nice to be able to swapp it out between 3 and 6 inches if i want.

Pros would be a lot, LOT better for aggressive riding and standing. Cons would maybe be the risk of possibly bending the steering post. Very small chance of that happening unless you're a gorilla or jump your sled 50+ feet on a regular basis.

thanks for the reply guys,im not terribly aggresive...i like to tour around and ride hard when i get the itch lol but risers would be for the more aggresive deep powder riding sleds,correct?

Not necessarily. Sometimes you want a little more height on the bars even for sitting down and riding. My ZR had a 2'' riser, and it was very nice for sitting, and decent for standing.
