The factory bars sat way to low for me even in the most forward position. I'm 6'2", I feel the 1" difference was perfect for me. I also did the 3/4" drop pegs which eliminated that cramped riding style. Bar risers are great includes new bolts with thread locker. I did not need to change anything with the cables, it was a perfect quick fix. Best part is this is MADE IN AMERICA! Quality product, combined with the foot pegs its like a totally different bike.
I think this is required for the bike, almost regardless of your height. I’m just shy of 5’ 11” and this gets the handlebar up in the air and then you can still fine tune (4 positions of fore-to-aft adjustment) via the handlebar clamp holes. It’s just way too low as it comes from the factory (unless you’re like 5’ 8” or shorter?). Very nice machining/high quality product and super easy to install. Definitely worth the price.
Fit and finish is great. Interface with triple clamps perfectly
Good quality bar riser
Which is why I bought it in the first place
