Hi Rokis,Speedy, Not sure if there is enough demand but any chance you could make risers that will allow a 1 1/18" bar? I know you would also have to make a top cover.
I might jump on my bike, shoot a video, and post it on YouTube. This way you will be able to see that there is no buzz in the mirrors. It's hard to video the lack of or a reduction in vibration of the handlebar riser. If comes to the cables and brake line, they all stay the same. There is enough slack in the original stock lines and hoses.I am intrigued by this product,:thumb: but I will wait to see/read reviews by actual purchasers before considering a purchase. A demo would go a long way in helping me decide to buy this item.:feedback:
Good luck with this item, and I hope it works as advertised.:clap:
I see that it will work with the stock brake hoses, that's a nice feature.:goodidea: How about the stock clutch cable, is there any need to alter or adjust it?:thanx:
There's no way I can see that a taller rider (over 6'1") with proportional length arms would want the bars closer to them. Just the opposite, the rider position needs to be opened up, not condensed.Yes, you are right, the handlebar riser will bring the handlebar a little closer to the rider as well as up, but this is not a problem. In fact, riders prefer it that way. How do I know it? Because, we've been making a regular handlebar riser of about the same height (regular riser moves the bar 1" and the anti-vibration riser 1-1/16") as well, and everybody likes it.

I'm looking forward to getting feeback from the forum users on this.
Just ordered a pair- will let you know how they work. Just put the standard risers on last week!
Chuck was making some and then quit.:goodidea: Another fellow took up the challenge, Ken I think, and was offering some for sale. Might do a forum search?:goodluck:Speedy,
Ever think about making soft saddlebag brackets for the v?!??! i want to add the Cortech soft saddlebags but do not want the sag and have yet to find any type of brackets....just sayin :goodidea:
Yeah, I don't mind the vibration of the bike at all, and Mrs. Speedy actually loves it :topsecret: Don't ask me why I just was getting tired of my right pinky getting numb when I would go for longer rides. Plus, you need to know that in California, for the most part, you don't get a ticket for speeding, but only for not looking in the rear view mirror, and that little buzz that I had in my mirrors prevented me from seeing the CHP coming from behind :guilty:I've not found the vibration on the Versys excessive at all, but then I have done 500 mile days on big bore, thumpers (like the KTM 640 which vibrates so much it has you buzzing for several hours when you get off the bike)
but wow, 50-80% reduction in vibes? how was this determined.. did you use an accelerometer? or more seat of pants experience?
not doubting the claim, just not much info on the website on how the dampening is achieved or how results were gathered. It seems the design has two pieces with the lower piece being supported by four shock absorbing feet and the lower piece floats between the stock clamp and and the top piece with the four mounting bolts going down through and in to the stock clamp?
