I believe my renegade X has the 5.1" riser. I only need another 1"-1.5" when stand up riding, Was looking at the adjustable riser and wondered if anyone knows if the riser block bag will still work with it? Does it cover the adjustment lever?

I have the 5"-8" riser on my sled. I don't use the riser bag but another our riding group does. Sure looks like the bag would cover the lever. How often do you want to adjust the riser? I use mine multiple times a day so wouldn't work for me.

I don't have the riser bag, but you could mount the riser with the lever facing the front of the sled instead of the rear. My map bag covers the rear facing lever and I was thinking of flipping my 5-8 riser.

not a lot. stock height is pretty good for sit down riding. I just want to raise it slightly for the times I play in the powder. I'm only 5'7 and about an inch would give me a slight bend in the arms.

I thought about the isovibe because apparently it will give me either 1.5" or 2.5" depending on mounting. Just no adjustability.

Other option is that I think powermadd makes a 6" riser block. that might be perfect.

Never mind. Powermadd won't work. Stock riser is 4" wide. Power add is 4.25. It will move the brackets that attach the bar out too far and the stock handlebar pad won't remount.

Rox makes a 2" pivoting riser. 2 pieces. Can mount them upside down to the t post. Then I would be stuck at 7" though. Probably perfect for standing, but higher than I would like for sit down riding I think.

5-8 Doo riser with a powermadd riser bag. Works fine for me.

I just lift the bottom of the bag lift lever move bars tighten lever... Done. 10 seconds.

I'll never not have a adjustable riser again. They are the best. No compromise.

That would work. Just loosen the bag and adjust. Might have to powder coat the silver bottom section though.

And it looks like there is a 4.5-6.9" version. That would be perfect. Definitely don't need the 5-8".

I don't have to loosen the bag. It just lifts up. Powdercoat won't work. There is a tight tolerance between the two sliding halves. It'll just jam it up, or it won't slide good.

It's a PIA to un-velcro my doo bag over the doo adj riser and dink around with the level.

I have the adjustable riser and the doo riser bag. I just reach underneath and flip the lever whenever I need to adjust. Not a big deal.

First pic is the bag in normal position and the second is lifted up with the lever exposed.

I should have said that the first pic is with the riser all the way down. When it is up at the top the lever is already exposed.
