I decided to get some of RV6ís riser bars and was able to get in on the 1st batch. I can say that he did an awesome job with the design and machining of them. As others have shown with the riser block design you run into complications with clearance for the clutch and brake reservoirs with the fairing. What is great with these is that they are replacement bars that bolt on and there are no issues. I used to say that trick parts bring trick problems but not with these.
The reason is that the master cylinders are roughly in the same place as the originals because they are so close to the bend in the bars. The end is raised about 1 ĺ inches I believe from what others have said. He even machined them so you can use the original washer to change the angle by flipping it around.
Installation took about an hour for both sides partly because I have heated grips so you have to mess with a couple of extra wires. From looking it is difficult to tell that it is different from stock. They come machined and I sent mine out to have them clear anodized to really have the same look as the originals.
I know others will adopt these bars and probably get my S1000 mirrors/brackets so I wanted to see how the combo worked out. All I can say to that these work extremely well together. I am pretty tall so I didnít have too many issues with the stock bars until the ride exceeded 100 miles or so. On Memorial day weekend I did 3 250-300 miles days The outer part of my hands were constantly sore as were my shoulders. Oh yea I am old too. I think that this is sure to be a winner for a lot of people.
