Although not super tall 6'2" , I find the handle height on my honda
Isy too low and it gives me back ache.
Anybody got any ideas on how to make it a couple of inches higher (
not longer ) without having to replace all the cables etc.

Curious as I bought a new Honda (US) last year. Handle height is
adjustable but IZY handle appears different:
Is there a second detent or hole for levering handle when loosened?
This is essentially how mine is raised by levering up or down and
Maybe one could be added if enough room to drill a second hole.

Where your model has a big wing nut for tightening handle, mine has a
bolt and at the base of the handle adjustment that can be put in upper
or lower hole to raise or lower handle height. These are the lines
that I was thinking you might cobble something up.
Honda HRG415 HRG465 HRG536 or "Izy" handle bars are fixed with no
adjustment unfortunately (its Honda's "Budget" mower and does not
feature any of the trick bits incorporated in to the HRX range!)
To make life easier for you tho (without modification), the Izy does
have 2 Height Of Cut Levers (one for the front and one for the rear)
Adjusting the front low and the rear high will give you a higher handle
and you will then just have to toy with the exact settings until you
acheive your desired cutting hight with the handles in a position you
are happy with.
Hope this helps
