Hello.
Did a search but could not find answers.
How high can you raise the handlebard before you have to do something to brakelines etc ?
And how will this affect the ride safety ?

I have Heli bars and I think it's up 1/1/2", out 1" and back an inch or so. No Idea about VFR bars. I did not make any adj to the brake/clutch lines and use Goodridge steel lines from Jaws.

You can only raise the bars about an inch before having to trim off the lower guide on the master cylinder.. IMHO this in no way affects safety..

People are able to install helibars or VFR bars without any modification the then length of the brake lines...

About 3 inches, Rerouting gives the extra bit, After that you need longer cables and wiring,

Mine are 12 inches,

I just installed Jaws risers and I have VFR bars. I also installed longer brake & clutch lines. Depending on how high you go, you might need to pop your windscreen off and cut a few zip ties off the electrical lines harness(also at a point or two along their length, wherever they are zip tied), which will also need a bit more room to move around-but no big deal.

In my opinion you win more by placing the handlebars closer than you win by placing them higher.
I agree, and whilst I now have the bars lower than std, having them swept back a small amount does make a vast difference. As always it is a case of find what suits you. Adjustable bars whilst relatively expensive (unless you make them as I did http://www.cbrxx.com/general-cbr-xx-discussion/8724-building-duck-71.html#post243314) are really worth the cash if you really want to fit to a bike.

To answer the second question, IMO the LSL bar conversion is The Way if you want bars that are significantly higher than stock. I've got VFR bars, which are in turn raised up about 5/8" on the fork leg (as far as can go w/ stock lines) and this isn't quite high or close enough for me. I have one of the kits incoming...will post up with results and impressions when I get it installed.
