The stupid website won't take my password to post pics even though it just took the password to log onto the site! Sorry. I had the Wunderlich risers on my 2015 & 2017 S1KRs, each with about 35K mi. Those risers won't fit a 2022 so I had to buy new risers. I find the forward reach on the 22 to be a lot more agressive than the other bikes, so I bought the Honigs. The help on the forward reach, but the shorter reach allows me to sit up & back a little. This took care of my saddle issue. Just finished a 5 day, 1200 mi ride. Might still get my saddle customized but now it's a ”want”, not a ”need”.

Thank you all for your input. I have ordered the 25mm Wunderlich risers and shall update once these arrive and I have them fitted.

Hello all,

Just an update now that I have fitted and tested the 25mm risers. The fitting was straight forward using the instructions provided, the only slight issue I had was positioning the handlebar central!

Yesterday I went out for a quick (so I thought) ride to test them out. 5 hours later and I am happy to report the risers work a treat - no discomfort throughout the full ride  :152:

Before I would have needed to return home after couple of hours - but on this ride I just wanted to stay out and ride  :001:

Another side benefit is that due to the slight height, the view from the mirrors has also improved  :062:

As for any negative effect on steering – none noticed at normal posted speeds. At higher than posted speeds a little extra steering input was required and the front end felt a little light.

Given the fact that I was able to ride over 120 miles without any discomfort, I am very happy with this setup  :082:
 
Thank you for your input in this
