I'm running the mxz 4.5 on my 165. The stock 7.5 was not working well with me. Feels much more manageable now being closer to the sled and shorter distance to pull from when off camber.

Been running the lower riser for three days in the trees. Just about perfect for any active riding.

I went 2 inches higher then stock and really like it. I'm 6' 2" and spend 90% of the day standing when riding, I found the stock riser had me reaching down, instead of standing comfortable. No cable issues going 2 inches higher.

Hello,

I'm re-starting this thread instead of creating a new one. I need a lower riser. The stock 7.5in is too long for me (i need one about 2.5-3 in shorter). My question is which one is recommended for mostly mountain riding? 


FUSER.

in the trees or sidehilling you want a shorter riser.... longer risers will decrease your leverage on the bars by forcing you have your elbows bent more to control front of sled.  The more leverage you have the better, so whatever you go with keep that in mind... the straighter your arms in the trees, the more leverage your gonna have and more control you'll be able to have too.

I felt like the bars were too close to me so I got the Skinz post forward kit to put on my coming Lynx Boondocker. I'm counting on the bars coming up a bit too when it's moved forward. Perhaps I will end up having to get a shorter riser, or one of the adjustable ones, instead of a taller one as I initially thought.

 

If the sled could just show upp anytime soon!! (planned delivery in about 3 weeks)

Anyone know what adjustable riser will fit an 18 freeride 146? The catalog is all over the place. Are the bars the same diameter at the mounts as the summit and freeride 154?
