Honda risers are manufactured with a stepped design in the clamp area. (See Pic)

Some riser manufacturers make model specific designs machined to match this (Touratech), others or "universal" risers are cut straight and do not account for it, which means if you mount per Honda spec, you would need a gap between the riser block and the lower stem and tighten the Cap tight to the block. With Touratech, since they machine in the step on the riser, you retain the gap at the cap, and the riser block sits tight to lower stem.

Either way, the AT clamps are not meant to be mounted with equidistant gap between the cap and stem like many of us are used to. The "Front" should be tight, and the gap at the rear (towards rider). Torque is 24 ft-lb, tighten front fully before rear. (from Honda service Manual)
Thanks for the tip, was looking at my clamps tonight and wondering about this. Previous owner had them equally gaped front and rear.

Rox has lots of different risers. I used Rox "Speed" risers and they moved the bars back and up to make the bar position perfect for me. I'm 5'-10". The AT has the best standing position of any of my 5 dual sports.

Too tight? I have Touratech's raisers and they're not quite tall enough. I'm 6'3". I installed the Knight Design lowered pegs but I need a tad more to stand comfortably.

Thanks!
