Handlebar risers
« on: April 29, 2015, 02:37:25 pm »
I wanted to raise the bars slightly so made my own riser. Made from 6mm plate, going to dry fit tonight before painting

Looks good.  Waiting to see them installed.  Boy, you weren't kidding when you said slightly.  6mm doesn't seem like it would make much of a difference but I will wait to hear from you, and how you like the feel.  I am thinking of getting some risers for mine, as well.

I put small risers on a Gold Wing and they made a big difference. With 6mm I can use existing bolts, if its not enough I can always double up or might even try a slight chamfer which would bring the bars rearwards. Bit of trial and error at the moment.

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea and sometimes a little bit can make a big difference when comes to comfort.  Keep us posted.

Its a piece of mild steel plate which I cut with a bandsaw and finished by grind stone and then file. I made a paper template first, and from that a plywood template which I fitted to the bike before making steel one. I've now painted with Hammerite smooth spray paint.
I could make more but it does take a while. If enough want one, the answer would be to get it done on computer aided machines.

I used a set of these and placed them between the handlebar holder piece and the rubber isolators on the triple tree.
