If you'd prefer something that moves the bars forward a bit too I'd highly recomend these risers:

http://www.mts.net/~andyj/barrisers/ (choose the pic on the left)

For more info go to http://www.thumpertalk.com and look up BigDR risers in the DRZ forum.

You will need to mess with the instrument cluster a bit to get these to fit, but it's worth it IMHO.

ebay, or ...on V-strom I use SW Motech risers, tall, that are about 1.2".... they were relatively inexpensive from AZmotorsports or CAsport or someplace.... at the time I bought mine I could not find any of the sandwich-middle type on ebay. as it turns out my XR650R and the V-strom have same dimensions on the clamps, so it would work on either. haven't checked the DRZ400E, as it just arrived in the garage sunday!

Recently ran across Rox Risers. Rox Website

They look great, especially because they are adjustable. Comments on the DRZ yahoo group were favorable from an owner.

If the stock bar mounts use a 12mm bolt to attach to the upper triple clamp you might check out www.acnmw.com. They offer risers in several diferent heights. They also have a neat little bar mount clamp for bark busters. It has a 'U' shape providing a place for cables and wires to run.

Check this site out: http://perryg114.home.mindspring.com/

They have risers, front wheel spacers and engine case covers of the DRZ400,KLX400, DR350 and (not shown) ignition cover for the DR650.
I have one coming for my DR650 because it fell off the stand and the shifter put a nasty gouge in the cover. This will cover it right up....:)

I just put a set of the BigDR off-set risers on my DRZ this season. So far I love them. Fit and finish is good and the forward off set makes a big difference.

If $$$ isn’t an issue...




BRP upper triple with S.U.B. mount stabilizer + Protaper Windham RM mid for additional rise.

If anything, don’t just change the riser; get a new bar while you’re at it…I went down for the first time and the stock bar bent like a piece of cheap patio furniture.

More pictures of the install http://www.flickr.com/photos/rodneywills/sets/72157594585037744/

You can purchase everything direclty from BRP http://www.brpit.com/

bigDR risers!

at 6'1", 200lbs., behind Race Tech suspension, the Big DR risers were simply the best mod I ever did to my DRZ.

These are in an ad in the "Adventure Motorcycle Dual Sport News " formerly "Dual Sport News"....good mag BTW. Anyway, these are 1" risers for 7/8" bars

http://stores.ebay.com//dirtlys-Motorcycle-Parts-Store

I have risers for my Moose flex series 1 1/8" bars. These actually make contact with the front of my 3.2 gal IMS tank not letting me get to the stops. I have to push as it moves the tank to lock the steering lock. So I just bought some new 7/8" bars and will get above risers.
