Good reports


And, do the risers feel stout enough for moderate (40-50') jumping on the mx track?

Thanks :banghead:



I think they are plenty stout. You WON'T break the riser, but if you crash hard enough, I suppose you could shear off a bolt or two. Your bars would probably break first.

well i must say @ 6'1" im pretty happy with the button bend renthals, i wouldnt mind them to be a lil more forward but i think there 95% better then stcok bars. im not sure how confortable theyd be with any one taller then 6'-6'2, i think the bar risers would work out much better then the button bends for n-e body taller then that..

By the way, all stock cables and wires are long enough for these risers. Install took 5 minutes. I ordered them about 9-10 days ago, and just got them today.


Thanks Bones, Got em Yesterday, Where have these things been all my Tall Assed life!

I am happy with my Jimmy's too. I am about 6'2" - 6'3". They are a great bend with not much sweep at all. I too wouldn't mind them a bit more forward, I run mine tilted forward a fair bit.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread but does anybody have the link for the riser blocks. It seems the old link doesn't work any more. Thanks

TT, why did you blank out the web address to these great bar risers? They were'nt advertising here, just word of mouth. There are TT members looking for this great product, and you are blocking them from finding it just because you can't find a way to make some money off the transaction. I think that sucks.

Found em. I am in no way associated with this company. I don't know anyone that is. I asked around for a good solution for my bike on TT, and someone suggested these. I bought them and love them.

I tried to upload pictures, but photobucket is down right now.

A fellow TTer had the perfect setup that I wish I had gone with. He had pictures and I copied them (but can't post right now). He used a Scotts sub mount damper/tower with the bar risers and the stock tripple clamp.

Basically grind off the casting on the back of the tripple clamp and install the Scotts as a normal sub mount - using the risers, he had enough clearance to put his pro tapers on.

Thats a sweet setup. I ended up just doing a BRP sub mount kit, but I wish I would have done your setup....I need the bars farther foreward.
