Got pics of your set-up invader?

I can't even see mine anymore...I have a little bag I haul the cloth and spray bottle to clean my face shield with strapped over it. Not the best photo but you can see the bag AND MotoWerks riser.


Or was that look THEN leap?

Correct Speedy's bar position is fixed - but you can still rotate the bar.

Rox Risers are good if you want different angles for different riding styles.
The Rox Risers pivot in the original mount allowing you to adjust the whole bar forward or back eg: for riding standing on the pegs etc. The Bar will still also rotate to get the controls at the right angle

That looks great! Anyone find a source for these? Are the letters stamped on it "RMI"? That looks so much better and stronger than the stock, swoopy looking thing.

I was just looking at a '13 or '14 Ninja 650, and its top triple and bar-riser looked pretty good.

I can think of better things to buy than a $60.00us handlebar clamp...right now anyway.

Haha! You're gonna hate me for this. Are you ready to see the coolest Versys handlebar clamp cover? Reminds me of a Formula 1 steering wheel digital display... Don't look if you're easily tempted.

You two are EVIL! Just EVIL I say.

The only saving thing is I don't mind the bar clamp. I have the little bag covering it anyway. And the simpler the better as far as I can see...one less thing to crap out on the road.
