    Yep..

    I went with the 1 inch risers. These are Tusk and I think I bought them from Procycle? Seemed like there was still plenty of slack when I was done with the install. Always want to check that no cables are binding so as throttle doesn't advance when you turn the handlebars. That'll get ya buying some new underwear if you happen to be riding when it happens.
    Truthfully for myself... if I had to go higher than 1.5 inches I would have just gotten bigger (and better) bars with a higher "kick" at the bend.

    1 inch riser kit.

    Kit come with a bigger replacement for the OEM bolt. Actually nicer hardware.

    You'd be doubling this below (riser and bolt) so make sure you really want to do that.
    I'm 6'2" with really long arms (like I could be dragging my knuckles). I'm real comfortable with the 1 inch. I also changed the seat and that also has to be taken into consideration.

    I used 2" pivoting Rox risers and did loosen the oem wire and cable fixtures.

    Yeah, ROX are really nice. Mine are primitive compared. Of course, so am I.

    2" on mine and it required some minor adjustments, but all stock cables and wiring still worked. That would be about max from what I remember.

    I got the same ones. It's surprising how much of big difference the little height added is for your comfort and handling.
