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!

Just saw this thread, I like the T-nut idea, Smokin. Our triple clamps are drilled out way bigger than the studs that hold the bars, so there should be enough room to keep it strong, I'll have to check. Those with matching spacers might be the trick. As far as cables go 2"x 2" really seems to be about as far as you can move the bars without replaceing the cables? If you were just going up, or moving them forward it would work better. When you go up and back you have to get creative with the routing,and it not only starts to look bad, but starts to kink the throttle and they start to rub on the tank! If you want to move the bars you should count on replacing them, if your lucky they will reach and you can do them one at a time starting with the worst fit? I'll try to post a pic so you can see what happens.
Here's how the cables look when you start to move the bars back. I don't plan on leaving them this way but am waiting for another mod before I buy cables.
