Handlebar Component Fastener Torques
Important: Moving a handlebar component without first loosening its screws/set screws may cut grooves into the handlebar, making it difficult to secure the component. Do not move a handlebar component without first loosening its mounting screws/set screws. Take care to avoid damaging hand warmer/brake switch wires when moving components.

Handlebar Angle

Handlebar angle

1. Loosen the four bolts on the top riser block (1).

2. Adjust the handlebar upward or downward to the desired angle. Be sure the handlebar, brake lever and throttle lever operate smoothly and do not hit the gas tank, windshield or any other part of the machine when turned fully to the left or right. If necessary, loosen the set screws for the left and right controls, rotate the controls slightly and then tighten the set screws to the proper torque. Do not stretch wires while adjusting the controls. Stretching the wires could damage the handwarmers.

3. Tighten the bolts. Torque to 14.8 ft-lbs (20 Nm).

Riser Angle

Riser angle

1. Loosen the four bolts on the bottom of the adjuster block (2). If necessary, pry the blocks apart with a screwdriver.

2. Adjust the riser forward or rearward to the desired position.

3. Tighten the bolts. Torque to 14.8 ft-lbs (20 Nm).

Riser Height (If Equipped)

Riser height

1. Release the riser clamp (1).

2. Adjust the handlebar upward or downward to the desired height.

3. Secure the riser clamp (1).

Periodically inspect the torque of the upper/lower handlebar clamp fasteners and slide fasteners.

 Item  Torque 
 Handlebar Clamp Fastener   16 ft-lbs (21 Nm) 
 ROX Slide Fastener  16 ft-lbs (21 Nm)
 Adjuster Cranks  Hand-Tight


Left Hand Control Alignment
Important: Moving the left hand control without loosening the four mounting screws will cause the housing locating pins to cut grooves into the handlebar. When this occurs, the left hand control may not clamp tightly to the handlebar. If the left hand control was inadvertently moved without loosening the screws and is loose, loosen the mounting screws and move the control block slightly to the left or right to relocate the pins. Torque the screws to specification. 

Left hand control

1. Loosen the brake master cylinder (A) mounting screws and move it away from the left hand control (B). Take care to avoid damaging hand warmer/brake switch wires when moving components.

2. Loosen the four left hand control mounting screws.

3. Move the control block to the desired position.

4. Tighten the screws to specification in the sequence shown in the image above. Do not over-torque. Torque to either 24 in-lbs (2.7 Nm) or 20 in-lbs (2.3 Nm), depending on your model. See your Owner’s Manual for the proper specification.

5. Return the master cylinder to its specified position. Make sure the clamp does not pinch the brake light signal wire. Torque the clamp screws to 70 in-lbs (7.9 Nm), beginning with the front screw first and then the screw next to the reservoir. Do not over-torque.

Engine Stop Switch Alignment
Caution: The stop switch must be positioned in an easily accessible location. 

Engine stop

1. Slightly loosen the set screw on the bottom of the housing (1).

2. Move the switch to the desired position.

Handlebar Angle or Position

Handlebar angle

1. Securing the handlebar clamp bolts (1) with an Allen wrench, loosen each of the four nuts (located on each bolt’s opposite end). Take care to avoid damaging hand warmer/brake switch wires when moving components.

2. Adjust the handlebar forward or rearward to the desired angle.

3. Be sure the handlebar, brake lever and throttle lever operate smoothly and do not hit the gas tank, windshield or any other part of the machine when turned fully to the left or right. If necessary, adjust the left and right hand controls.

4. Tighten the handlebar clamp nuts to the specification in your Owner’s Manual. This will vary based on model. Do not over-torque.
