I got these off of ebay for $30 bucks shipped, and they fit as described.

so if you are looking for inexpensive riiser that works as described, offer $30-$32 on these and you'll like them.

I use ROX 2" Risers on both my V650s, as w/ ROX you can change the orientation, closer or farther as necessary, while the ones you showed can ONLY come towards you as they rise.

Thanks for sharing. I am thinking Rox is what I need. As I need the bars to come back to me a bit. My V650 fit me like a glove with no riser modification. But this bike , I am finding the bars to be a little wider, or they do not sweep back as much as the 650's? Am I imagining things? I seem to be leaning in more than the 650.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

regarding ROX: i have heard and read varying opinions about needing to make cable/control modifications when installing these. does anyone have knowledge of that for 2017/2018 1000LT?

Can't say for the 1000LT, but NO ISSUES on the V650 w/ the 2" ROX.

Just FYI with these, they have a pretty slick powder coat on them including the inside of the riser where the bar goes.

I ended up using a dremel to rough up the inside so that the bars would stay firmly positioned.

I just cut shallow groves similar to the groves already on the bars, works fine now.

This are not adjustable, but the risers are already angled back a bit, so these just continue on that angle. so they end up being up a bit and back towards you a bit. maybe 3/4 of an inch each way. Just enough to make a difference to me. I've done one ride with them and I could tell the difference. Less pressure on my wrists.

I put 3" ROX risers on my 15' 650LT cause I wanted more height and back closer to me. they worked great. I had to re-route the clutch cable behind the triple tree, everything else was a fit. The front brake line was close but did not put any tension on it.

For those with short arms.
