I agree that most risers only aggravate the problem however the risers I am speaking of move the bars 1.5"s farther forward AND up. I avoid rolling the bars too far forward as it creates an unatural position for my wrists and contributes to arm pump on my particular body. I have realatively small feet for my ,size 11, so my results with the control lengths have been mixed, right now it appears my 06 YZF450 will get a shorter shifter but the brake seems short from the factory. Trouble is that you gotta get a competent welder that knows the fine art of welding forged aluminum or the area of the weld will become very weak. I snapped a shortened brake pedal at the weld quite easily. I have heard it is somehwere between difficult and impossible to weld such forged pieces without losing the strength. Speaking of which the shifter on the 06 is evidently made of butter! I bent mine yesterday and it bent back so easily it was scary definetly not normal.
