    Place the handlebar [1] on the lower holders while aligning its paint mark [2] on the handlebar with the edge of the lower holders.
    Install the handlebar upper holders [3] with its punch marks [4] facing forward.
    Install the handlebar upper holder mounting socket bolts [5].
    Tighten the front bolts first, then tighten the rear bolts to the specified torque.

    Superjeap; Thank you for the quick reply.

    I'm going to try some 30mm bar risers on this weekend, which is why I needed the torque figures and I have a couple more questions to anyone who may have tried risers before if that's ok?

    A:- when tightening the bolts up should there be any gap after tightening the rear bolts?

    B:- Are any other adjustments need i.e. to the cables and wiring etc or do they "Stretch" ok?

    CheersIanMc9

    A) You mean a gap between the upper holder and the base plate holder? No, there should not be much, 1mm at the max
    B) 30mm is really the max for the cables, only by what i've red on this forum, so it can be tricky READ HERE and HERE.

    The main problem with risers is mostly the mirrors hitting the screen when at max pivot, depending on your screen.

    Cheers;

    I'll try them this weekend and see if they improve the ride.
