Congrats, Rennes. Put high bars, and even risers, on the KTR. Have the seat remade with added height. You'll need it at 6'2".

Hi Maunaloa: Since Rennes has apparently purchased his KTR, the next Question will be " How Can I make more POWER?" Are there piston / head upgrade options beyond the 170 kit? I am looking for something closer to 250cc, but I do like the rest of the KTR. BR Jerry

handlebar risers. they bolt to the triple tree and elevate the attachment point of the handlebars. Some risers also move the attachment point both up and aft.

I don't know of any.... and given the "average" grade of the barrel casting on a KTR, I don't know that pushing beyond 170cc is a good idea.
