I just installed this adjustable risers on Mostro Verde. They do a nice job of relocating the stock bars just enough closer to take the pressure off my wrists and back at 1/3 the price of new bars. With a long torso and short arms it stock is too much of a reach.

The PO had installed some superbike bars for the same reason but the pullback put my wrists at an awkward angle. He also had longer brake lines made so I have no issues with things being too tight.

They look less ugly than others I've seen. Laughing

Less ugly is an apt description, but far prettier than what my bulging discs do to my back and sciatic nerve...

Will try to find an silver plug or something to put in that threaded hole. If nothing else a stainless body washer and pan head screw might look better.

It's a power box - cigar and USB plugs for whatever needs to be powered. Mainly to charge my phone.

Hi Eric, could you tell me the rise on these extensions please. I'm assuming they are Rox Risers. Also wondering how much additional brake line the PO had installed.
I'd like to raise and tilt mine back, after an hour on the bike, I'm feeling the burn.
Thank you,
Randy

Randy - I purchased my risers on eBay (HERE) for $30. Be sure to order the 28x28mm size. They're just about a 2" rise and seem to be holding up well in the 3 months I've used them.

I haven't measured but I recall the PO saying the brake line was "a couple" inches longer (presume 2). Depending on where you set the bars you may be able to get away with rerouting the lines vs. replacing them. Also have to watch the electrical and throttle cables. First time I did it things were pinched and the bike would rev on full right lock.

Thanks Eric,
I need the bars to come up and back so pretty certain I will need the brake and clutch extension. Hope I can
get away with creative routing on the rest of it.
Thanks again,
Randy

Randy - Try the risers w/o longer cables first. I found if you do more UP and less BACK you can make things work and still get the relief you're after. Worst case is you'll find out what needs lengthening and by how much. Just watch the electrical stuff running under the tank fairings and that you're not straining anything.
