Very true, there is some sort of Vacuum Monster under there that sucks anything that you drop into the abyss.

Did the bar risers ever get installed? Was the OP happy with his work? Will there be pictures?

Default Re: Installing Helibar riser, have a question...

The only issues I had while installing my risers were clutch and brake lines. They weren't quite at the right angle to permit full movement of the bars without being pulled.

They're easy enough to "modify" because the hard lines can be (carefully) bent the way you want them. The hardest part of that is the tupperware. Apparently some don't have this problem - I did. All is well now, though, many miles later.

Whatever happens, you need to know how to remove and replace all the plastics, anyway. It's not hard, and after having had them all off/on a few times, I have it down to ~20 minutes either way. It's a bit finicky in a couple places, and the left side has those two protruding bits that look like they're only there to get in they way. They're actually there to hold the electrical connector, so slide that back in place before the final placement. Don't just cut them off as some have done.

For those wondering what the fuss is all about a google search starting with SMC Problems and going from there will reveal numerous issues people have had and what a sticking SMC means to your safety.

Again changing the brake fluid regularly probably takes care of it.

If you cant do the work yourself or afford to pay Honda to do it or just dont pay much attention to things like this (and even if you can!) you can cover your ass by kicking the rear wheel around with the bike on the centerstand before every ride. (just like you check the tire pressures. )

The sole source of your knowledge is gained by quoting the anonymous sources of Google.
YOU DO NOT OWN A ST. It's time you get over that.

Your trolling has been more than graciously fed.

Move along.

How about we just read contributors info and take from it what we can, without berating them?

If you don't agree with them, then say so, just not with so much invective.

Your source of knowledge has failed you seriously.
The YellowWing went out yesterday.
The ST this morning.
I didn't just install new Michelin Pilot tires on both bikes to park them.
Reading comprehension. I posted both installs.

If your going to troll other than new guys you will need to seriously step up your game.
Find a new source of information and if you target a individual you better bring your "A Game" with accuracy.
You failed miserably.


Launch your own Site and leave this one alone.
