I wondered about that happening with the extra leverage. I'm thinking about a set but am somewhat concerned about the bars hitting the tank in a fall.

I've had a slow speed offroad adventure. the bars were tweaked just a hair, nowhere near going into the tank. Loosened all the bolts, then put the bars back where I want them and all is good.

Thanks for feedback.

In the meantime I've found an alternative which I'm likely to use:

I had a set of the Zetas on a my Himalayan. Simple and work well.

Heli makes a solid riser also.

I finally mounted 2" Rox risers on my 2018 Tiger 800 XRX. I had to move all the electrical cables and connections to the rider's side of the upper fork clamps. The clutch cable and brake line were left where they were and they were just barely long enough not to bind at full lock in either direction. Moving the cables just involves releasing the fork tubes and dropping them down enough to move the wires. Easy 30 minute job. My back is much happier with the 2" risers pointed mainly back towards me.

Anyone try the Triumph risers on a 2019 XRt? Cables seem too short. Haven't actually tried yet. Going to give it a go in a few days. Just picked the bike up a few weeks ago.

Ride on my friends....
