I haven't read the whole thread but the risers I removed were made specifically for the job (the Trophy). You could tell by the machining involved.  I removed them and sold them on because a) I didn't need them b) I wasn't happy about the strain they put on to the already known harness problem.

However, I bought the bike from Demonbane up in Scotland (still in this group I think) and he would have bought the risers from new and would be able to tell you the supplier (if he's still here and contactable)

There is no rule that the spacers have to be 1” in length.
When I bought my new Trophy in 2018, I decided to add 3/4” spacers instead of 1”, over concerns about wiring and cable interference. I of course sized the new bolts to match the spacers.

I can happily report that they have performed flawlessly over the last 33,000 miles.
Plus, they didn’t create interference with the Triumph tank bag, back when I had the one.
