Handlebar risers for airhead

I am converting an r100rt over to naked and plan to try a set of sidecar bars but suspect I will want to raise them a little from the standard fitment. Are there any custom riser clamps available that raise the bar another inch or so ? I have searched but can't seem to find anything ?

I have Rox risers on my g650x but want a cleaner look on the r100. Just another 1in taller than the stock clamps would be about right

go to ebay and look for R100 handlebar risers. This is where I found my last two sets.

I do it cheap and stack an extra set of lower handlebar clamps on longer studs.

Wrap the stack in heat shrink for a better optic.

I guess the sound second set of bases would work, wouldn't look the best. I thought there must have been someone making taller bases or shims of correct profile but maybe not.
I don't see any taller units on ebay.

Check out the handlebar risers on this page. I have a set and the machining is awesome.

This works well for me............

.....with the added benefit that fork springs can now be changed very easily.

I have these laying around and could probably be talked out of them for a small phenominal fee.

I did not use them on my 84 R100RS because they put the handle bars right in line with the steering damper .

K75RS bars worked out great however.

I found these some time ago, and finally put them on the bike last week... love it, and as mentioned above, I can now get to the top of the fork tubes to work on fluid, etc....
