    Handlebar risers

    Hey Guys n Gals,
    This may a bit of a long shot, but i'm wondering if anyone happens to have a set of drawings for the dimensions and shape of some handle bar risers?
    I managed to get a set of drawings for the FJ1200 i had, and succesfully machined myself a pair, and thinking if possible I'd like to try it again for the new bird.....
    Thanks in advance for any help, even a pointing in the right direction.

    These are mine, 12 Inch high and the handling is awesome, Very comfortable riding position,
    They bolt on the same as the clipons do,
    I put a set in to them so they are about 4 inches back towards me as well,
    Venhill make the extended Throttle cables, Any bike shop for these, Cut to length and solder one end on, They come with all the necessary bits you need as well,
    Local Hydraulic shop will make new hydraulic lines while you wait, Take your old ones in and put them on the counter, Then tell them how much longer you want them,
    Undo the nose cone and undo all the wiring clips. Plenty of wire in there so you dont have to extend them,
    Plenty of piccys in my albums To show how I made them,

    Re: Handlebar risers

    The handling is awesome, I can throw it all over the road with ease,
    I dont get aches or pains any where, Its extremely comfortable to ride,
    110,000 kays in 7 years, I do ride it, No commuting, just a fun machine,
    Its the same sitting position as a Goldwing or any other bike with high bars, standard,
    It just looks odd on a Blackbird,
    I dont care about the looks, I care about its functionability for me, It does work,
    Make the Bird fit you, Unless your a specific size, The Bird wont fit you,

    Looking pretty cool there deadman , I have to say it looks damn comfortable, my flat bar conversion works in the main for me but I've looked into a slightly different bend/bar at the end so my wrists sit straighter.
