Thanks adv42, I owe you!
 
Just installed the risers with very little fuss:

Had to rework the clamps on the brake hose by about an inch. Clutch cable is a bit tight, but I may be able to free it up a bit. Used a couple scrap pieces of aluminum to move the cluster up.
 
So, I have some cables to return, and I'll own a $13.00 brake hose and $20.00 worth of shrink tube.
 
Rode it around for about 45 minutes, and like it just fine. Still riding one handed and slouching, so no improvement there, but it's more comfortable having the bar closer.
 
Thanks Again!

Hey all! My stock risers are bent! Anyone want to sell their stock risers? As long as they are straight of course. Thanks!

I don't think anybody will be able to help you, because the existing risers stay on the bike, with the aftermarket risers sandwiched in between the bodies and clamps.

I will be testing out a lower than stock set of risers here shortly... im going the opposite direction and getting a new clamp base to bring the bars forward and lower with the ability to reverse that for highway riding
These are the risers i ordered

@pattonme
you got the fz09 right? Any chance you can measure the height of your stock lower clamp?
i got a close up look at the 09 while at the dealer today... the stock clamps look to be about half the size of the 07 maybe those would work for me

Hey guys,
So, this sucks.
I wanted to install 1" handlebar risers, and stock $20 risers from Amazon fit like a charm.
But the speedo is mounted on the bottom part of the stock handlebar mounts.
So now the speedo can no longer be mounted.
 
Anyone has a solution to mount the speedo on the bar that is now higher up?

Boy, here's bumping an old thread.  I was looking at sorkyah's plan to replace the factory risers with a lower set-- how did that work out?  From the parts diagram they look to be sold as a complete assembly with the lower clamp and bolts all one piece.  Can you get the bolts out?  If so, I'd try the old Sportster trick and raise the factory clamps with something underneath and use longer bolts.  Steel shaft collars from the hardware store worked great on an 883, I'm wondering about something along those lines on this bike...???

In case somebody else has the same question-- yep, all one piece so no, can't get the bolts out.
