 :89:  you only need to 'wiggle' the cables a small amount and the risers will fit comfortably

 :89: I installed the MotoWerk Bar Risers even without the 'wiggle'  :008:
In the words of that famous sports brand Nike - 'Just Do It'.
Good luck  :152:

Yeah, but the occasional 'wiggle' is quite therapeutic  :008:

You are absolutely right Tyke. I might further suggest that at our ages (I'm not that far behind you!) a 'wiggle' is not only therapeutic but a down right necessity to keep our joints well oiled! haha  :008: :008: :008:

I prefer a waggle but that's a Lancashire thing.
