    UMI Steering adjustment question

    I actually got time to install the UMI yesterday, I have a question though, is it possibble to get more height out of it? I bought this last summer so I have lost the instructions and used the install questions in the forums. As it is now it seems lower than the stock 06's I was hoping aboout 07 or "X" series height.
    Thanks

    No height adjustment in the mechanisim itself. The easyest way to get more height would be to get an offroad motorcycle handle bar with a higher rise, or get bar riser/spacers like Jerry and some others have used.

    I installed a complete X setup on a 07, and I can tell you I wont do that again, you have to mod the opening, make a filler plate, than mod more parts. Nooooooooooooooooooo way, will I do that again........ But if you do go that route I can give you a baot laod (pun intended) of hints and tips.

    ETA, I do have a set of some Renthal ATV handle bars that have allot of rise and are just a tad wider than the X bars.
