bar risers

This past weekend I bolted on a pair of Roaring Toyz handlebar riser blocks. My goal was to lower the front of the bike but I cringed at $180 for Woodcraft clip-ons and chose the $60 Roaring Toyz blocks as a start. When I removed the stock bars I found a cavity underneath that allowed the fork tubes to be extend above the triple clamp about a half inch. The previous owner or factory had already used this space. The riser blocks allowed the triple clamp to be lowered another inch down the fork tubes. So now my front is dropped an inch and a half which equals the lowering of the seat done by the previous owner. This achieved my goal of restoring the stock geometry and seems to improved cornering balance.

However, the blocks set the bars back toward the tank and combined with the increase in height above the triple clamp give a more upright riding posture. This is not to my aesthetics, it does make for a more comfortable ride.
