You need an allen wrench. On the Top of the "gooseneck" there should be one allen bolt. This is right in the middle of the handle bars, above the tire. You can loosen it there move it up and tighten it back down.

Raising handlebars on schwinn ditch 2.0 dn


The above answer is incorrect. The Ditch has what is called a "threadless" fork/stem setup. One cannot raise the stem at all unless there are spacers above it. Raising the stem is also not the only option. A stem with a shorter "reach" may be sufficient. Google "threadless stem riser" to see options for raising the stem. Following is a video with the procedure.

Raising handlebars


There is a single central connection to the handlebars This is called the "gooseneck". (Ther handlebars slide through the goosenect and then the gooseneck is tightened to hold the handlebars. The connector to tighten is in the front (so you do not get "injured" if you have a collison). Loosten the connector (it may be allen, or perhaps hex nut.). Raise or adjust the handlebars, then tighten. Make sure it is really tight (do not strip the threads). The handlebar has serrations to lock on to the gooseneck so the handlebar - gooseneck bolt will have to be loosened quite a bit to allow the serrations to "jump" to the next serration.

How do you raise the handlebars?


unfortunately, your bike uses a threadless stem. meaning you cannot raise it, you must replace it with an adjustable one, or get a stem with a steeper angle.

Raise handlebars


There is a bolt on the top of the goose neck that hold the handlebars in place. It should be a 1/2 inch, some are metric so just find the right size. Loosen this bolt about a half inch to an inch. It will be sticking up out of the neck. Tap it in with a hammer, it will go loose. Now just raise the handle bars where you want them and re tighten the bolt.

I need to heighten handlebars


In the center right below the handlebars is and allen head screw. You will need an allen wrench, loosen the screw by turning it counter clockwise. Lift-up on the handlebars and adjust to the desired height and re-tighten the hex screw. Be carefull not to raise up beyond the lower adjoining yoke line on the goose neck.

How do you raise the handlebars


There's a ring nut between the stem of the handlebars (The stem is the vertical part of the handlebars) and the frame of the bike where the handlebars connect into the frame. The handlebar stem goes down through the ring nut into the frame.

Loosen the ring nut and you'll be able to raise the handlebars. There's a mark on the handlebar stem which indicates the highest point that the handlebars can be raised to. If you raise it above this there won't be enough of it in the frame and this can cause the stem to break when pressure comes on it. Also when tightening the ring nut up again make sure you have the handlebars and front wheel lined up.

How do u raise handlebar heigth on f400 bycycle


There are only a few ways to raise the height of your handlebars (the actual grip portion you hold onto)

1) - Raise the stem. How this is done is determined by what type of stem you have.
A. If the stem is inserted via a shaft into the frame, then you must loosen the bolt in the center of the shaft to raise and lower the stem. This has limitations (a line on the end of the inserted portion of stem) you can not go past the max insertion line. If you need it higher, then you need a new stem that allows for more height.
B. If the stem clamps around the fork steerer, then you can only raise the stem as high as the end of the fork. In some cases you can invert the stem for greater height. If you need greater height, then you will have to replace the stem with one that has greater angle.

2) - Replace the handlebars with ones that place the grips higher relative to where the bars clamp to the stem.

In all cases this would be a good project to take into your local bike shop, show them what you have and ask them for the best solution to raising your handlebars.

Things to keep in mind: When you raise the handlebars you increase the distance from the controls to the brakes and derailleurs. If you want to raise past a certain point you will need to replace your cables and housings as they will need to be longer.

DO NOT RAISE ANYTHING ABOVE THE LIMIT LINES: This will cause the bike to be unsafe and could fail causing a serious injury or worse.

I am considering converting the clip handlebar on my hyosung gt650r to the high handlebar of the hyosung gt652s,can you advise me how and what to replace or look out for.thanks


Simply type in 'Hyosung parts' in your preferred search engine and look for the replacement handlebar kit for an 'S'. Instead of the handlebars clipping on to the sleeve at the top of each fork like the 'R', the 'S' set is bolted on to the two other bolts you see on the inside top of your handlebars. It's as simple as buying the 'raising' kit, bolting it on; unbolting your existing handlebars and re bolting to the raised 'S' style kit. About a half hour job with a shifter!
