Don Blixt turned me on to the factory's risers which raise the bar 2' and move it back 1". I am fairly short (5' 8") and have arms commensurate with my height. After long rides my shoulders started to ache and Don's suggestion has added a world of difference. Not only am I much more comfortable but I actually have better control of the bike. They also look very cool. Consider this change if you are in this category. You will need a longer front brake line but the throttle cable can remain stock. Both of these are supplied with the factory kit and use the longer throttle cable for garage art. About $300 for the kit....Joe

Hi, Bill...I can't help with your need for leg risers and I could use them also but the risers make the riding experience so much better for those of us with shorter arms. Easier to maneuver in the parking lot and also through the high speed twisties. You wouldn't believe the difference these risers make. They also look great.....Joe
