handlebar risers for Tiger 1050

OK guys, I need to raise my bars. I like the stock bars but I am 6'1" and need to raise them a bit.
What do you recommend?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Get some aluminum round stock, cut it too length to raise bars to required height. Drill a hole in the center and using a longer bolt and the original bar holders you will have raised your handlebars. Or buy risers from The New Bonneville.

ROX Risers are a 2" rise. They rotate so you can move the bars for and aft. SW Motech has some 1" up and 1" back. I have the ROX and the clutch cable and front brake line are really tight with that much rise. My bike is an ABS bike and the brake cable is hard welded to a junction box under the tank area so getting a longer brake line is not a viable option. A clutch cable can be made at any length.

So far I haven't had to do anything different with the clutch cable or brake line because I have my forks raised a little bit to lower the front. I also moved my brake and clutch levers inward a little bit. I love the difference. I'm 5'8" and it helped a lot.

I too have the Rox risers, no mods were needed in my case. The best price that I could find was at Amazon.

If only a small rise is needed , pick up some quality, thick washers at your hardware store along with slightly longer bolt . Install a few washers under stock risers and you are good to go in minutes. Also easy to adjust to custom hight. I would only use this method if you need less than 1/2" rise. I did it on a street triple and a little bit of rise went a long way.

Thanks for the washer tip dtrides. I too need to raise my handlebars on my Tiger 800 XC. I am guessing I need closer to 2" than 1/2", but have plenty of washers laying around that I can try it to see exactly what is best for me (6'5") before making any purchases.
