Hi All
I had a reply to my add for the and managed to get a set from a member.
They really have transformed the riding position and they are only 19mm.
I think I may keep the Cat a little longer now.
Here are a few pic's I took while changing them. great great great great

These risers go underneath the original bars on the tops of the fork legs to raise them by 19mm as shown in the pictures above great great

Ive just had a look at your post for raising the bars......Good Idea,but it would need some beefing up as there is a lot of stress on the bars under braking and hard acceleration. I was going to put a set of adjustable clip ons on mine,which was a similar Idea to what you have done,but it alters the whole set up of the bike as your bars would have to be too far back.
I am a Fabrication Engineer/Turner by trade,but dont work in the trade anymore.
I have tried a number of things and spent a small fortune LOL but a few years ago I could have made a set of these Genmar type risers in my lunch break LOL.
The thing is for ease of fitting and the end result,you wont beat these risers as they take everything into consideration,like the limit for cables,pipe's and clearance,etc,etc,and you know that they have to be safe to a certain level.
I tried converting an original top yolk and ended up selling it and then went out and bought a proper top yolk conversion for £150,only to find out that it didn't work without chopping the fairing,so I sold it and then I found out about these by mistake.
Hope this helps.

I'm not trying to dampen things etc steve.
but looking at this picture,by raising the clamps up to the limits .
you'll be in the same position as you are now.

as for my clamps etc this was only to set things up to see if it can be done etc.
and I was trying to make so that folks on here can do it themselves but it has quite worked out that way without an access to a lathe etc.
I have now bought some more materials etc ..much beefier.

as for the clutch cable etc on the left is ok,
the right hand side as you'll know brake botle needs moving and the throttle cable need twisting around a little towards the clocks etc.
it might not be to some liking but I think I'll be fine with it.
anyway once it is all done I'll comment and give my verdict on here.

When you fit these, you dont alter the height of the fork legs at all. All you do is undo your handle bar clamps and lift them off the fork legs,then you slip the spacers underneath the original bars which automatically lifts the bars up by the 19mm spacer. so you are actually sat up 19mm more upright than you were before,which doesnt sound a lot,but is a hell of a difference when you come to ride the bike,but it also keeps that sporty feel.
I suppose in theory,you are sat in the same position,but are more upright,and thats what I was after for comfort.
Your Idea is superb and is the way I was thinking of doing it with the adjustable clipons that you can get off Ebay. i was well impressed with what you are designing and it will be good to see how you get on with it. You could end up with something that you could market and sell,because these sort of things are hard and expensive to get a hold off.
Hope this makes sense.
