I have tried three sets for my 2018 DL1000 XT, a 20-mm riser set from SW Motech, a 30mm rise and 20 mm back set also from SW Motech and a custom set — read expensive — from Gilles that is completely adjustable for height —in 5 mm increments — and rear set back — in 3.6 mm increments. I am currently using this one with 4 5-mm shims for rise (20-mm higher) and 21.6-mm for rear sweep.l This is is perfect for me. Part number is Gilles 2DGT-02-07
To accommodate the 20-mm only risers, nit change were necessary. For the others, I have 50-mm longer brake hoses from Fren Tubo (best brake lines and then come with stock Suzuki ABS attachments unlike the cheaper stuff from Golfer and others). For the electric line on the left side, i just snipped one tie wrap and we were good to go.
for the right side, I unbolted the right side switch and passed it underneath the tryple clamp so it no exits behind the forks. Lots of room. quick tip while doing this. There's a hook mechanism attached to the front of the triple clamp to hold the throttle cables and this electric wire. Slide the throttle cables out followed by the electric cable. Then replace the throttle cable back in position. This not only lets you route the electric cable as suggested above but also gives the throttle cables more play.
with these easy mods I'd suggest you could accommodate all the way to a rox 2-inch riser
The gilles have a lot of strong points. I may write up a post omg them. One small drawback that I will correct later. But the availability of being able to adjust them (it takes about 5 minutes and nothing more than a 15-mm socket with a six inch extension and a wobbly attachment to do). I tried four settings in an afternoon before settling on my final choice which is nothing short of perfection.
