I have 2" ROX RISERS on both my Vs, mainly because I did NOT want the bars to come closer to me, as the Motowerk ones do. In fact I have my handle-bars DIRECTLY above the 'stock' location, giving me the FULL 2" rise. GREAT for just riding, REALLY GREAT when standing on the 'pegs...!

@fasteeddiecopeman do you need different cables or brake lines with the 2" risers? I have an '09 V, and I am dealing with throttle finger/thumb/elbow numbness that is relieved when I "tuck" to allow my arms to bend.

I have been running the Motowerk vibration-reducing spacer, but have not gotten significant relief. My next thought is try the 2" risers potentially with a fat bar with less sweep.

Thanks,

Don

NOPE - everything the way 'Ma Kawi' sent it, except for the risers.
