The most important is the fact that they are adjustable.

They have four adjustable pivots.
1. Riser Clamps - Crossbar rotates moving grips forward/backwards
2. Crossbar Pivot - Rotates to raise/lower grips
3. Bar Pivot - Moves the grips in or out to adjust grip angle in relation to the rider (bar ends closer to or further from rider)
4. Grip Pivot - Inboard of the grips, allows you to rotate the grip bars to change the lever angles. And this also changes the button pod angle for a more direct line of sight when rotated up

The picture in the original post was taken from the passenger seat. And as you can see, you can actually read the buttons now. Before, at least for me, the buttons were very close to being vertical and I would have to adjust my wrist down to get to the bottom buttons.

The cross bar adds additional stiffness to the bars over the stock design. You can also use the bar to add mounts if you so desire. It is a standard 1 inch diameter solid machined alloy bar.

Love the bars and for sure the 1800 needs some kind of adjustment,but I can't get my head around the $800 price tag.Hopping the price will come around a bit after they've been on the market for a while.For now I'll have to make do with my Kury risers.


If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.
