Clutch cable question.

I am putting adjustable risers on my 2012 triple,and I need a longer clutch cable,I realise I can probably get one made up but does anyone know if any of the other triumph models use the same cable design but a bit longer than the street triple,I have spent hours trying to find this out on the internet with no success.

Your main worry is the front brake line at full fork extension, not the clutch cable. You really can't go higher than a half inch over stock without stretching the brake line very tight over bumps. I switched to Rizoma MA008 conical bars which are slightly higher with grips angled back slightly more, rather than use risers. IMO higher bars can upset the high speed handling because of the wind blast against the body. - Wayne
