Bar risers
« on: April 17, 2019, 07:34:20 PM »
Anyone fitted bar risers to their 2012 STR ? I've got dodgy shoulder and looking for something to ease the pressure off it and maybe this is the way forward?
Any comments welcome cheers

Hello.
I installed SW Motech 20mm risers a couple years ago on my 2012 non-R Triple.  They eliminated about 75% of the aching in my 65 year old shoulders.  They are well made and have longer bolts that go through the lower clamp.

I am 5'10" with a short arm span. 

My only comment is that if they were any higher than 20mm, you would have chafing with some of the cables.

Money well spent for me.  Definitely relieves some wrist pressure.  The different handlebar thicknesses on the R and standard don't matter because it's an insert between the tree and the bottom of the existing clamp.  It's part TT-LEH.11.039.10201.S  Typical German quality.

Hope this helps.
