$20 bucks my friend ! http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/pr...&sizeAttr=2521
Anyone try these handlebar risers from eBay? Seller seems to get pretty good feedback, but I would like to hear from someone who actually had/has a set of these. I can't afford to go all out and get a really good set, or a new set of handlebars yet, but if I can get something to pacify me until I do it right, that would be nice. I was hoping these inexpensive risers would work out. Every time I ride the TW, I always wish the handlebars were a little higher.

I have a set of the Tusk risers sitting on my toolbox without any use for them. I'm leaving at 3am to go out of town for the weekend, but if you want them, pm me your address and i'll mail them to you on Monday free of charge. I had them on my bike for a week and got a set of Pro-Taper ATV-Hi bars instead.
Is anyone using the tusks? And if so how do you like them?
I need to order a set because I'm leaning over too much. And $20 seems like a justifyable upgrade.
Wheely - Let me know if you dont get rid of them and I'll buy them off you.

I have a pari of the Dirtly spacers from eBay on my TW and am happy with them. They are of good quality and come with stainless bolts. They lift only about one inch and I cannot for the life of me, tell the difference in the hadling characteristics of the bike. The added inch feels a bit better on my arms, but I would prefer another inch or so. From what I have read here on the Forum, at about 1.75" you will need to start rerouteing cables and wires or think about lengthening them. Highly recommended even so!

I really like the fact that Tusk now sells a solid riser instead of the previous stacked version that I have. I use all the pieces and would look better solid.

The 1.2" higher is awesome. SO much more comfortable on my arms and elbows. Definitely suggest these if you are 6' and over!

I use the Tusk risers. I've been really happy with them. I'm 6' 2" and they made my TW a LOT more comfortable for me. Also picked up a cheap set of MSR bars at the same time (CR High bend) and they put my hands in a much more comfortable position that the stock ones. I've also used the Ones that Pit Posse sell and like the Tusk better. Though they did turn out to make a nice mount for my Vapor.
(Pardon the mess, I've had a few projects going)
