Bar risers

Looking at options for raising the bars , too uncomfortable to stand up on the pegs

What are people using ?
How do you rate them ?
Any good deals in the UK ?

Cheers
Brock

I installed ROX Risers on my AT. Very easy install and really gets the bar where you need it.

Get yourself a set of these. Fantastic quality, the owner really cares and spent a ton of time getting them perfect. No, I am not the owner, just a very satisfied customer

I'm happy to answer any questions if anyone has them.
Here is a customer review on youtube for the Scotts mount system. It's the same but with the damper mounting system.

Can't say enough positive things about the Motorcycle Adventure Gear risers. I have them installed and they are absolutely perfect. They are beautifully engineered, machined and finished. I installed them in the forward position (turned around) and it is absolutely perfect for me.......Thanks Tim!

I am using the helibar bridged risers, they raise the bars an inch and back an inch and supposedly reduce bar flex. They are perfect for me (I am about 180cm) when i am seated they let you sit right back in the more comfortable, wide part of the seat and improves the angle that my legs are on down to the pegs. For standing they are actually a bit short, but still way more comfortable than standing up without risers. They cost me about $169 usd, including dhl express to Australia, so pretty good value. The link to them are below.

@mitch @johnsosn We are super glad your'e happy with your risers. We started our business because we wanted to spend our money on parts that focused on ALL the details (Style, function and quality). We hoped there would be a market to support it. Hearing such positive customer feedback makes all the hard work worth it. We have some exciting stuff we are working and can't wait to show off.

I installed Rox risers and I like them but be careful about getting them aligned. It is possible to to get them tight but not aligned and the rubber mounts of the OEM handlebar stems will try to twist and be a little cocked in one direction or the other. I guess this can happen with most any bar risers. I had to redo mine when I saw the bars were not aligned at a right angle to the bikes center line.
