I just thought I'd update the group on some bar risers that I stumbled onto thanks to a friend with a Triumph 1200 Tiger. Turns out that a lot of riders of the Tiger think the reach to the bars is excessive. My friend bought these before he got the new bike and found out he didn't need them. I'm 5' 10" and 180 and found these solved some comfort problems and handling issues I was working on. First these risers put the bars up about 2 inches and you can then pivot them back about another inch, so overall about 2 inches up and 2 back. For me it was a great improvement in handling and seat comfort. These allowed me to sit more upright and further back from the tank enough to get my butt on the less narrow portion of the seat and get a lot of weight off of my wrists. They are made by a company named ROC [no affiliation] and they have a web sight, currently for sale for $ 132 and free shipping. Not cheap but they are billet and have some vibration damping built in. Mark.
