    Or buy some 4" dog bone risers and make you own. That is the route I took.

    If you need any info on building them yourself give me a hollow and I might can give something to help you do it.

    Default To the OP

    What kind of riser do you need/want?

    Cut or no-cut? No cut blocks give you 1"-2" rise without cutting your bars to pieces, and can re-use your stock control cables. Cut ones require you to permanently cut your handlebars and *may* require longer cables.

    How much rise and / or how much reach back do you need?

    If you can find them used, Heli-bar risers are no-cut and give you 2" up and 4" back.

    Can Am riser blocks are still available if you only need a little rise.

    I ended up using a block along with the dog bone risers.

    We used the Helibar option. I can't recall if I also used a riser block. I'll have to check the spare parts bin.

    I used Helibar 5" risers on my 2009 RS. Don't know if they still make them but I loved the diff. they made. Had enough cable to go 5" up and 2" back. You can see how I sat if you go to my website.
