    I'm thinking of getting a set of Tusk Handlebar Risers for my 2008 Tdub like these: http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...7%252F8+RISERS



    The 30mm risers seem to be popular, but has anyone tried the 15mm size? Did they make a difference? Did you have to modify the cables at all for either size?



    I'm looking for more room in the cockpit while sitting and a more comfortable reach while standing on the pegs. Don't want to mess with switching out the bars, so risers may be a good solution.

    I have the 30mm Tusk risers. Cables are not a problem with stock bars. Don't think I even had to reroute anything.

    I have my stock bars mounted up on a 2" (50.8mm) Powermadd handlebar riser. I had to reroute my cables because I mounted wraparound handguards at the same time, but the stock cables are plenty long enough for my application.



    If you're still shopping around for risers, I for one can say that a 2" riser is a fantastic ergonomic improvement and I'm only 5'8".

    I preferred the Rox Pivoting 2" risers because I wanted to move the bars back as well as up....they were exactly what I needed. No cable changes necessary.

    Excellent feedback. Does anyone have a pic of the Tusk risers installed on a TW200? Just wondering how they look and if they match up with the stock handlebar mounts.

    Will get you a pic tomorrow if no one else chimes in first.

    They match fine mechanically but the risers are polished aluminum and the top triple and clamps are painted silver.



    If it was a Panigale I might be worried about appearances.

    They are cheap and they work! Ive had the 30mm for about 8,000 miles so far with no problem at all. Even with the tusk handguard everything fits fine with no rerouting of cables.

    I just installed the 30mm Tusk risers on stock bars. For the money they work great.



    15mm = .59 inches

    30mm = 1.18 inches



    IMO if you feel you need some risers, go with the bigger size. For the price it's hard to complain. I'll try to post a picture soon.

    Here's a pic of the 30mm Tusk risers on my '08 with stock bars. I only rode it a few times before putting taller bars on but it was noticeably easier to ride standing. I cropped it out of a much larger pic so it's a little fuzzy.



    I've got a new set of 15mm for 1 1/8" bars too and will be putting both sets in the classifieds soon......$20/pr, free ship, if anyone is interested.

    Thanks for the pics! The parts look like they match up well. Now to finally decide between the 15mm and 30mm...
