That link goes to the 7/8" model. Hope you didn't order those. Your bars are 1-1/8" at the clamps. Those remind me a little of the adjustable risers available for the ST bikes that a lot of those owners put on. Same level of adjustability.

I rode to work tonite with new risers on,,, WOW what a difference on my lower back Much more relaxed now,, I now know I will be able to do my 18 hour days easily Come August for my USA 4 corners ride
I did the USA 4 Corners Tour back in 2010. Definitely need the ergos right before heading off on a trip like that. I rode my VTX1800 on that trip. I had fitted the bike with an aftermarket seat, handlebars, highway pegs, cruise control, etc. Made the 10-12 hour days very enjoyable in the saddle. Have fun and keep us updated on this site during your travels!!

Hi, which size did you use, and did you use existing cables and brake lines.
I am having problems seeing through the stock mirrors, so much so that I have fitted additional mirrors from a Crossrunner, maybe the adjustable risers would solve this issue.
Thanks for any info.

Ok ,, had to remove the cables and hoses from their little retainers to benefit from the full "back" adjustable part of the new risers.. I will replace them shortly with longer ones Just because I like the extra cushion.. Now I have the risers almost parallel to the ground which brings the bars BACK as far possible . I am now Comfortable sitting upright relaxed with elbows just slightly bent.. PLUS I can now see a much larger view in my stock mirrors , Still have a blind spot to my immediate rear though.. I will still be going with a set of those miirors that stick on from the other members post

Will try and get pics in daylight tomorrow I am off for the whole .. first day off since I bought the bike

I put mine on today 8/26. Brake cables are stretched pretty tight. you can gain a little on the cables by loosening your control clamps at the reservoirs and slide them inward about 3/4 inch. Geez those hydraulic cables are tight.
