Handlebar Risers, which ones????

I want to gain about an inch in height. If it ends up doubling as a Scotts under bar mount for a damper to be purchased later, a plus. Im cheap so what do you suggest???? Pics or links would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

I think they work with Scott's dampner they come in 1 1/4 and 2 inch rise.

ROX risers are pretty darn nice and they only cost ~$85. The bonus is that you can change the fore/aft location of where they are positioned.

Just use "Ape hangers". All those Hardley Ableson riders can't be wrong.

+1000. Good Quality, STRONG & looks GREAT . Only way to go in my book.
You need one that has the CrossBrace for Strength when dropped.
No Crossbrace =
The Rally Riser will NOT SLIP like the competition's

I also have to RoX and they are really sweet.

The Touratec Risers Suck, they dont alow any adjustment, and you are likely to rub through some wires if your not careful. (dont ask how I know).

Go ahead and name the "competition"?

If you refer to Rox, I have had no issues with them slipping at all, and I use my Adventure as intended. Not saying they are better or worse, but there are a bunch out there being used with zero issues.
