    12 rxp-x handlebar riser

    Is there a way to economically raise the bars on a 12 rxp-x say 1 inch or so? I love the sit down handling and rough water capability of the ski but an extra inch would really make it more comfortable to stand and not feel like my arms are going to pull out of my shoulders and neck when the going gets real rough. My 08 t-x is way more comfortable when standing for comparison. Thanks in advance.

    I was wondering the same thing too! I hope someone will tell us about this mod! I want my to rise like 1-2inch for better stand up riding and easier to wave jumping too!

    Without replacing the entire steering stem, I don't see any possible way to raise the stock set-up.

    Thanks that is what i figured...too bad it's not like the sleds where for $20-40 you can raise or lower the height for your riding style/comfort.

    You have to keep in mind that the rider position on this ski was designed for CC racing where you rarely ever stand up. You have way less control over a ski when standing up, especially when your riding one as that turns as hard as this one does. As far as wave jumping..... you entirely bought the wrong ski for that!

    I'm not sure if my '10 PX handlebar riser would work for you or not?? Shoot me a PM if interested.

    The Riva system lets you use any mx bars you want so you have the world of choice from low bars to very high bar bends to suit what riding you do.

    Bump. Anything new to report on a handlebar riser?

    I have a 14 PX I'd love to get some higher bars, hopefully 2''. I'm 6'6'' and cannot stand and reach the PX's bars without being hunched over awkwardly. It is nice/fun to be able to stand on occasion (as I can with the telescoping bars my 15 SVHO FZS has) and even sitting I feel like the stock bars on the PX stress my mid back to turn, rather than using upper body muscles.
