Advice needed - handlebar risers

Help needed, looking for an advice please.

Is there a nice and easy way to remove handlebar raisers which have extended brake and clutch lines, as per the attached photo?

Any tips, tricks and things to be aware of would be appreciated!!

Re: Advice needed - handlebar risers

If you have the capability to bleed the brake and clutch lines, it should be easy since the stock bars appear to have been simply elevated by the use of two links on each side. Remove the connecting hydraulic lines. Remove the links connect the stock bars to the ones in the steering bridge. Remove the bars in the steering bridge. Replace the stock bars with the controls attached into the steering bridge. Reconnect the hydraulic lines. Bleed the systems. Some times you just need to jump in with both feet. Good luck.

Think you are right.
Could you check if they are made of unobtanium?

Looked at their website and the price seem to indicate some sort of exclusive material.

Re: Advice needed - handlebar risers

I'm more worried by the fact that the brake fluid looks to have been replaced by English beer . .

Re: Advice needed - handlebar risers

Wunderlich may have several types, but these don't look like the set I have on my K1300S. Mine replaces the steering bridge and standard one piece handle bars are fastened to the bridge by a couple of short risers that are adjustable forward and aft. The stock hoses fasten to the bridge and the short hoses go from the master cylinder to the bridge. Last time I looked, Wunderlich in Europe gets about $560 Euros and will not ship to the U.S.. Wunderlich America gets over $1000 USD without handle bars.
