I have a PowerMadd 3" riser. It's similar to the Rox idea, but it's all one piece and a fair bit cheaper. I stayed with the stock bars, as the angles felt better once the bars were closer to me. I also just added footpeg lowering brackets, and am very happy with them, although they slightly change where you take pressure on your seat which I wasn't expecting. Overall, I feel like I'm in a nice, balanced upright position on the bike. Of course all the ergo stuff is very individual. Nice thing with these bikes is that there are tons of options/parts to help get it right..as was mentioned, on and ABS bike you need the extended brake line. I bought a +3" but I think a +2 would have been enough. All the other cables have enough length to just reroute them. If you change bars, obviously all your controls will need to be transferred over, and you'll need to drill some index holes or dremel off the locator posts inside the clamping areas of the pods/perches.
