I ended up getting 35mm washers around 2.5mm thick and placing them between the existing mounts and rubber inserts. Initially put 4 in and ended up dropping back to two. Also under the edge of the base of the riser put two smaller washers to take up the gap. With this set up I could use the OE bolts, with 4 washers had to use 75mm bolts. M10 1.25 thread at 75mm long. I found with 4 spacers plus the two x1mm spacers under the riser cap, (total 12mm.. Near 1/2") the handling felt heavy in the front end, probably my brain, but with two washers, around 7mm rise total, it just took the edge off leaning forward and handled good. Total cost was under $5 with using 4 spacers with new bolts, $1 only using two spacers..It doesn't take much rise to improve the comfort. No problem with hoses etc.
old bikers never die....they just smell that way
