Good question. For myself I think it would be better if they were a bit more forward. Is it possible to turn them 180°?

Yes I have fitted risers - was only able to do one rise level due to lack of slack in cables to lift any higher would require a re cabling and wiring, it is possible to rotate a little forward if you wish.

Hi peace
NO handling different from before to after feels exactly the same
I do not know the brand of riser as dealer sourced them but the part number and description is:
024900W28   28.6 BAR RISER    AUD$ 40.86 + gst + fitting
with the lower pegs I now have the setup to be perfect for long standing times which is why I had them fitted feels just like a heavy dirt bike now  :001:
Need to wear down the tyres and put some knobbies on it soon  :018:

Here is another option RoK risers maybe a 50mm rise would be to much??
