Default Handlebar risers???

Hey everyone, I've been looking into anything that will bring my handlebars a little higher up and a little closer to my hands while riding. I've looked and I can't see any risers, etc. that are designed for the Stryker.

Would regular 1" handlebar risers even work with the way our handlebars are mounted?

I'm only looking for something that can raise the stock handlebars, as I don't want to go through the process of remounting/installing new cables.

If anyone could give me any ideas I'd really appreciate it, thanks!

These look like they might work. The bolts that hold the bars on would have to match to these new risers (length, size, and thread type), and then I would suspect they would bolt right on?

Won't work unless you change handlebars. I have asked Rivco to try and come up with something to use with our stock bars. Hopefully they will.

Aw that sucks. Guess we'll just have to wait. Another thought, how high do you think you could raise the bars without needing to run new cables? I was thinking only about 3''-4''.

I'm pretty busy this month, but next month I'm going to try to make some 1" risers at work. Shouldn't be too hard with so many machinists running around to help me.

One of the ideas I gave Rivco was to make a sort of "T" nut. The studs in our bars are in the bars and not removable, that I know of. The triple tree is thick so when you raise the bars 1/2", the threads disappear. Would need something to go up into the the tree holes with threads internally, but thin enough to fit in the hole. With a bottom that has a way to tighten that also.
Like this; but have a hex head where the flat is. Just a thought.

Yeah. Those machinists are tricky buggers, though. I'm sure they can make whatever I need. I was assuming I could just powder coat a longer bolt, but I haven't taken it apart yet to see how it's put together. If the studs are part of the bars, you could weld a peice of allthread on them to extend them pretty easily... or drill and tap the bars so you could use a bolt and be able to change it whenever you want. I don't know. I'll figure something out. I'm sure one of my buddies at work will help me figure out a way to do it without messing with the structural integrity of the setup.
