    More Height RXT

    Question
    I have raised my handlebars on my 08 RXT as far as they can go and they are still about two inches too short. What other options do I have. I was was to put the RXT-X steering system on it would it fit? The only other option I can see is shelling out 1,200 bones for a lomines system. Can anyone out there give me ideas.
    Yes I could just slap on a diffrent set of bars but I don't want it to look like ass. I should have bought an Unltra...

    I'm 74" inches and 250 LBS. I am part of the PWCOFFSHORE GUNZ Race Team and we ride in the Ocean. When you ride 40 to 50 miles a shot at WOT you need to stand there is no other option. Try staying in a low squat for 50 plus miles. If I had two more inches to stand I would be in what I feel is the perfect race postion.

    The only two options I would recomend big mike

    Lemoine, I think you can get it for a little less than $1200 still over a grand though

    or

    Get the X steering which I believe is about the height your looking for

    YOu got any pics, dose that 08 ski not have adjustable bars?
    I think you going to have trouble rasing the stock setup, I am sure others will chime if possible.

    As others stated the X setup or rox risers with umi will raise it up and give you flexibilty in the setup angle.

    I recently put the X bars on my ski and love it! Not only do you get the raised height, you get the finger throttle, wider bars, and steering is more left to right vs up and down. I got them for $400 and included everything. You will just need the Speedfreaks mounting plate to make it a clean install.

    Here you go Mike. I put these on our Ultra to match the height we have for Tyler on the RXT-X. These are 3 1/2" risers but you can get them up to 5". Cost about 120.00 bucks. The Ultra does have UMI. Would this not work for you on the stock RXT steering?

    Aftermarket bar with risers on the stock steering will be the cheapest way to go. I dont have risers as im short but here my set-up with stock steering and Riva bars.
