    Yeah.. fudge that, I'm taking the aluminium brackets.

    Even risers with a rail like this -
    2Pc CNC 22mm/28mm Motorcycle Scooter Pit Bike Cafe Racer Chopper Handlebar Riser | eBay

    suddenly seem unwholesome.

    Try just slackening of the handle bar bridge and rotate the bars towards you a little..
    My recent post here: Rotating the handlebars
    Tighten the top bolts first, then the bottom... 22 NM IIRC...
    Check the bars do not hit the tank or trap ya thumb or hit the screen, when on full lock either side...
    Job Done!

    Anyone thinking of buying any riser should at least try this first, it's free

    Thanks, this will probably come handy even with brackets. Just got the 2cm + slight tilt type.

    Is the 22 Nm spec still relevant when you use the bracket bolts / threads?

    biggest con: $30 part with tons of failure points leading to you holding a bar no longer attached to the bike.
