To wiffa =>  :450: apology --- how do the wunderlch risers fit on your bike (I think you have a current version correct)? Any issue with fit? Do they bolt right on no problem.?

Instructions are with the risers.
But they are very simple to fit.
New longer bolts are supplied and are all top quality.
Just need to make sure you mark the bracket & bars before removal to ensure they go back in the correct position.

Thanks for your info.

Good to hear they come with longer bolts for the change to the bars (rubber bushing). Nice tip on marking them as well.

I like stock for regular and track riding but was considering the risers for longer rides.

Perfect coming into spring/summer to get a real feel how good it is.
Just in case you are interested down the track.

Enjoy, & Safe riding

Funny you should mention the bar raiser! I felt the seating position was a little bit too forward leaning, so I got the dealership to throw in a $200 bar raiser for free -- they're going to fit it when they unpack the bike and put it together  :047:

Well yeah thats Ali Express with 6 week shipping lol.

The bar risers across the board from the various retail shops I looked at hovered around $150-200.
