    Looking to  purchase a set of Handlebar Risers from a New England Company . Looks like good quality ,heavy duty. Friend purchased a set from a UK manufacturer. Not same shape as US made .Has a cutout in it and not as thick where holes machined. US priced a little more but price not really an issue when talking handlebar mounts. Anybody have any feedback on either product?

    Hi Rockman,

    I purchased the American risers last year. Quick delivery, good service, good fit and very easy to install.

    best regards, Shemogolee

    Would you mind specifying the name of the 'New England Company"?

    Thx in advance.

    Fitted a set of Genmar risers to my Trophy yesterday. Easy, ten minute job. I purchased these through the Australian distributor for $3 Aus. less than if I had purchased of Ebay from Johnny Rocker, out of England. When still in the packaging, [ with the plastic shrink film over them ] they looked grey in colour. But after removing the packaging they were in fact black, as I'd ordered.
       The next problem that I'd been anticipating then reared its ugly head. With the tank bag [genuine] fitted both switch blocks were to high for the cutouts/indents on either side of the bag. Not having any pieces of plastic, I substituted treated pine, [wood] which is impervious to water ingress. I removed the plastic foot under the front of the bag, [three nuts-n-bolts] and shaped the wood to the same shape as the bag end of the plastic foot. Refitted the foot with the now painted black wood item between foot and bag base using longer bolts and nylock nuts. Bag back on the bike required the front strap on the bag being slightly lengthened, and all was good again with the switch blocks clearing the bag again.
        I know you are all going to ask for photos. But seeing I'm not that proficient at posting photos you'll just have to do with my explanation.
         1. Plastic foot at front of bag removed.
     
          2. Shape wood to same as base of plastic foot.

          3. Drill holes in wood, same as plastic foot.

          4. Refit foot with wood between foot and bag base using longer bolts.

          5. Refit tank bag to bike.

          6. Resume riding much happier with altered bars and tank bag.

          7. Continue your happy life. :152: :152:
