Question KLX400 Handlebar Risers - The same as KLX650?

I'm looking for a pair of 30mm handlebar risers for a 2003 KLX400SR. It's hard to find some that are spec'd for that bike. Does anyone know if the bolt spacing and threading is the same as the 650? Does anyone have a good source for a pair that will work on the KLX400? Thank you.

You do know that the KLX400 is a DRZ400 I assume...

Yes, I get to do twice the number of searches when looking to find information on the web.

KLX400SR Handlebar Risers Installed

I got a great pair of risers from Perry at Advanced Motorcycle Products.
http://www.motorcycleproducts.org/ba...n-frameset.htm

7/8 inch, zero offset, Item# ZOBR for $40 plus I splurged for the stainless steel pan head machine screws, rather than the hex head.

The install went smoothly. No re-routing of cables.

Klx400sr

Installing the risers and sliding the forks up greatly helped the feel of the bike. The previous owner installed lowering links in the back.

Glad you liked them. Made in America as well. I have some offset risers that give you a few more options. I sell engine guards as well but those are a hard sell with everyone and his brother selling them now.
