My Service Manual should be showing up this week. Before it arrives and I read about how to properly do this, I was hoping for some anecdotal experiences on adjusting handlebars and potential issues, etc.

I've found that in order to get the bike through the basement door, I'll have to rotate the handlebars a bit in order for it to fit through the opening.

It looks like there will be some detaching of brakelines, etc that I'll have to do.........

Simply adjusting the bars shouldn't require the disconnect of anything. I added 4.5" risers and new bushing and disconnected nothing.

Of course this may depend on what bike you have but there is a not insignificant amount of extra cable there.
