Aluminum Bars

K's motorsports in Humble has a great deal on in-stock handlebars. I picked up a 7/8 Pro-taper for my Bandit and a couple of 1 1/8 bars for the Versys.
One is a Pro-taper that is close to the stock color and only about an inch wider. After a ROX riser the height should also be close to stock. This is the bar I think I will end up using. (024781 Hawkins Woods High)
The other is an Applied bar that is about 2" wider than stock and is black. It also came with a top triple clamp and riser to fit a 2004 YZ. It has about the same rise and pullback as the Pro-Taper. I will probably end up selling this one.

I have the following questions. What riser should I get, and what bolt-ons are available? ( I don't want to have to tinker here) What does the ROX anti-vibration riser do to feel and feedback? Anyone who has done this to their bike have any instructions, advice, or things to watch out for?

On the Bandit, the bar should fit in the stock clamp, but I think I'd like to raise it a little. Is there any kind of spacer that lifts the stock clamp up an inch or two?

BTW, If you are in the Houston, TX area do NOT under any circumstances bring any bike here for service.
