Raising handlebars or Risers

I recently purchased a 2005 ZX12 and I absolutely love the bike, What a change from my other bike a HD Road Glide. I have only 1 issue -I am 60 years old and if I could only raise up the bars a few inches this would be the perfect bike. It already has about a 1" rise on the clip ons from the previous owner. Anybody have any ides About how far I can raise bars without changing cables or affecting turning radius because of the fairing ?

All suggestions or experiences would be appraciated

Thanks

I really hoped that after 130 views someone might help me with my issue. I guess this site is not what I thought it would be -bikers helping bikers with some insight and knowledge.

No worries I found the answer myself after some digging. It appears that Speigler Performance makes a kit that I am looking for.

Thanks for Nothing

Hi Fish. I've been a hanging out for awhile. Read a lot of your guys post from the early years. Lots of good info. How you put up with stuff is unbelievable. I need some of that. To answer your question probably about 5-6 inches. If I can figure out a way to post a picture of my bike maybe it will provide that answer.

Hey fish, you remember a post it would've been an early one you was talking about driving in L.A. or san fran in an old ride could hardly fit through the streets listening to fly robin fly. It's been a while, but I remember that music. Great times.
