I would like to get some bar risers . What are the best that give you at least 1" or 2 " would be best ? I would like to not have to change throttle cables and controls. Thanks

I went with 0.6 in. It was enough for me. 1.2 in. would be O. K. But anymore I'd switch to Pro Taper bars. I might anyways.

Best is subjective depending on what criterion(s) you value most. Lowest price, most versatile, best quality,Black, polished or satin aluminum finish? Certainly all the commercial 2" risers seem to work with stock cable lengths with sometimes a little re-routing required depending on hand guard installation. There are a few styles that can be rotated to change fore and aft location of the bars. I would suggest you peruse multiple listings on Amazon for handlebar risers to get familiar with prices and styles that suit you.

With the ProTaper bars from ProCycle, you do NOT have to change any cables.
Even with ProTaper bars, I was able to get in another 1 1/2 in risers too without much difficulty.

A few months old, but did you have any issues with cable length, or need to re-route cables?
No problems what so ever with the length, and no need to re-route anything. While the Mayflower is in dry dock, I actually moved the bar risers to the new TW shortly after I got it and there wasn't any problems on the new TW either.

Well said! Seen 'em for $15 up to $150 and beyond. It would be nice if someone made them with a great finish and some vibration dampening that was around $7 lol

I installed these Rox 2 inch risers on my 06 today. They fit perfect cables and all. I am extreamly pleased in every aspect. I also have better vision with my mirrors. I give these risers a 10
