The bike I saw these on was a Husaberg and they fit on top of the existing bar mount to lift and move the handlebars forward. An alternative to repacing the whole triple clamp.

I have the Thumper +1" risers & I don't know how I rode w/o them.
There has been lots of discussion about bar risers & tall seat foam. I used to think I was alone in my quest for big guy ergos on a motorcycle.... this site has given me new hope (Sometimes I think it the 6'4" & Over MC Club ).
I run Thumper Racing +1" Bar risers on an Applied Racing Top Clamp. I went this route for two reasons - 1. Applied clamp moves the bars forward 10mm 2. The Applied clamp uses removable bar mounts - I really don't like the 'add-on' bar risers.
If you want to run a Scotts dampener you need the +1.5" risers from Thumper

I really like the improved ergos. I can’t speak to the half inch or so it moves the bars forward, but the added height is great. I wish I could bend the Renthals a little straighter, a la CR-HI’s, but that’s being picky.
The only downside to them is their weight. Thumper Racing is used to building things for the XR600 crowd that obviously doesn’t care about weight. I’ll be they weigh 2-3 pounds. In this age of machined aluminum and titanium, I would have expected better for the $80.

I would recommend the Applied Racing triple clamp with the with the tall bar mount and get the one that pushes the bars farther forward than stock. I am confident that this will improve your riding position on the bike plus providing a more comfortable transition from sitting to standing and make you much faster. You are going to need every little advantage you can find if you don't want to get spanked by girls.

I know of at LEAST a dozen guys who couldn't SEE that girls dust let alone EAT her dust. Make no mistake, there is one fast female rider out here who can cross logs, streams, hills, and humbles lots of guys. (and a nice lady no less) Very impressed.

It's another thread that morphed into a bar riser discussion. Topic is 'tumper racing site' posted by milkman2544.
