I'd like to see how Handlebar Risers feel. If you are somewhere in the Greater Toronto Area I would love to try them, especially if you have up and back risers.

Thanks,

Tom

I just added Rox risers (up'n back). If I manage the 19th and you're there, you're more than welcome...

Tom, I have a pair of the GenMar 1" risers. Up only, no back. I'm not using them right now. You can try them out if you'd like.

Hi Heavy,

Let me know when you will be around.. I'll head right up!

It'll have to wait until next weekend, when I'm back. I'll try and have the set-back pieces for your topcase at the same time.

savvy: Thanks, I won't be able to get there tonight unless it is real late.

It doesn't matter, though, I gave in to the farkle Gods and ordered a set.

So have the new risers proved to be a benefit Tom? Have they made a difference in comfort for your back or wrists? I'm wondering if I should try risers on my bike because I get a nagging back ache across the middle of my back about in line with the bottom of my shoulder blades. I also wonder if a driver's backrest would eliminate this issue.

I haven't received them yet but ordered them. They should be coming sometime next week to my work; although I am on vacation so I may not get them till the week after.

I'll keep you posted.

I friend of mine has a Volusia and he had similar complaints. He put extended risers on his and added a backrest. He is still looking for a narrower set of handlebars but he says it is better than stock.

Thanks for the input Heavy. A friend of mine has a backrest on his Volusia so I may try swapping bikes with him for a day and see if it works. I also thought about narrower handlebars similar to the ones on the M50 (Marauder). Maybe I'll take a look at that next time I'm at Newmarket Suzuki.
