Risers... Pennytech, Touratech, Sommer, etc?

So risers are also on the list as I get things put back together. Looks like Loaded does a dandy job, seems Touratech has some which execute in a different manner, and then I hear of a jobbie made by Sommer which may be way too expensive (Emig is out of my league at this time too on this bike).

The purpose of this mod is to obviously make it more comfy while standing, but I am interested in the which of these may also dampen vibes or have other effects...

So let's hear from those of you who have experience with risers on the 640 Adv.

PM Loaded... he does a very nice job and charges very little for his efforts.
I haven't heard a story yet (not that there isn't one out there somewhere) about riser extentions increasing vibration.

Loaded and I have PM'd and he is very reasonable for sure. Nice work you say, eh? I would rather support Loaded as it may help to pay his rehab in learning to ride a bike facing forward ;)

Think I will see what else turns up on the thread and make an order Monday.

I read long ago that Flanny did his own for 3 bucks, like creeper. But they have the right tools for the job and skills. So does Loaded and his looked beautiful. I would go with his too (someday...).

FYI - someone around here said that 30mm rise is A-OK for the cable lengths, but not if you have aftermarket bars that rise alot more than stock. I believe the reference was to Pastrana FMX bars... All new cables would be a bummer. Buncha threads on this stuff back there if you can find them. (I know a few if not.)

As Rad says, and in my experience, it doesn't eliminate vibration... but it does (at least with the ones I made, and as I recall Loaded's as well) seem to change the frequency and amplitude, in relation to RPM.
I feel a bit more vibration (what little I have) in the lower RPM and less in the higher RPM... in fact, between 6K and 8K there seems to be quite a bit less "felt" vibration.
I'm a poor "poster child" for the whole vibration issue anyway, as either my bike produces very little vibration or, I'm just not that sensitive to it.
