What is the rise on those? Mine are pretty much touching the lower clamps. I would like to go higher like what you have.

I believe they are the 2" risers.

And for those that say turn them around, if I do, I have to remove my handguards as the spacing doesn't line up that way. I'm pretty confident that they're not going to vibrate loose. If the bolts loosen enough for the risers to slide out, then any h/b bolts could loosen enough for any h/b to slide and flop around. Don't hear of that happening so I'm ok with my setup. Other people's mileage may vary.

I think what they're trying to point out is that the handlebars will come completely clean off the stock clamps because you have both risers inserted from the left. If they were opposing one another, the bars may come loose, but they could never come off in your hands.

If you have the ROX risers then the 100mm will not fit, otherwise the 100mm is the correct size.

HDB rules

Ok so a little background after a crazy long wait for my top clamp and risers. (Not HDB's fault) They finally arrived. Then it happened, the upper clamp was ordered right but the bar size was not right. Crap oh well throw the factory top clamps on the risers that were already installed. No riding time lost. Contacted HDB, and with no hesitation they apologized and sent out a new one, no questions asked.
Got the new one today. And it fits and looks awesome.
With this kind of service you can't help but endorse them and continue to buy from them.
Good work guys thanks.
