Bar risers for Tiger 800

I've just run in my Tiger 800 roadster, pleased with the bike. I have a neck problem due to worn discs and The Tiger is hurting my neck. Not had this with previous 2 Tigers, solved the issue with my Speedy with bar risers but can't find a stockist for T800. Anyone know ?

I bought the 20mm bar risers from Twisted Throttle and they are aces. I believe they are also available through Touratech. While I didn't suffer from pain with the stock setup, the riding position was off for me. The risers did the trick.

You can also use the XC risers on the road for added height.

I really like the XC risers on the Roadie. Installed them not too long ago. It's not as perfect as my F800GS was, but it is pretty close now.

Google up some Rox 2" risers. I have them on my XC, they are the 1-1/8" variety. Enough cable slack for them too.

Happy standing up. :-)

I added the XC risers and while I'm not sure I'm not imagining it I can't help but feel like I'm getting more vibration in the handlebars now. But I also recently added barkbusters and a motech top box, so I need to do a little more research.

I bought the 20mm risers from twisted throttle for $20.00 bucks cheaper than Touratech due to advisement from this forum. The fitment is perfect and i think a better design than Touratechs. As far as the ride, I did 300 miles, mostly interstate to get to the mountains where i wanted to go and the risers along with the Koako throttle cruise throttle lock made it a breeze. the risers make standing up much better. Go for it

I've the XC risers & the SW Motech 20mm risers. Total is +50mm. Much more comfortable than stock.

That's gotta be pretty tall. You've got the first Tiger chopper. Now extend the forks and take off the front fender.
