I installed the ones 2" one I put in the picture above and I have no clearance issues. the bars don't hit the windscreen or the tank. there is much more clearance between the bars and the tank, and I like yourself am on the shorter side. I'm 5'9" and was leaning forward and after the risers were installed, I am much more comfortable sitting more upright, and my arms are not stretched to reach the bars. I recommend them and with the adjustability of them I think its a great buy!! I will try to get some pics up maybe tonight for you.
... just double check any tank bags you might use when using 2" Rox Risers.

This is more difficult than I imagined. I'm leaning toward the risers because I like the gold bars and feel more comfortable about the installation. Is there a wrong answer here?

Update: on a 300 mile ride I was definitely bothered by the handlebar distance. The upper-middle of my back was fatigued. And with winter layers on it made it even worse. Also, having tense, extended/locked arms I believe is contributing to poor throttle control and fatigue in my throttle hand.
I had a similar experience, but the 2" Rox Risers did relieve the symptoms noticeably. No regrets gettin' 'em.
