I didn't replace the stock bars before the trip, the new arrives just few days before and I didn't have time to fix it.
I bought a Protaper Contour Raptor. Looks fine but I didn't try it yet.

Too high, you got high bars plus risers? Yikes! Nobody would be satisfied with that setup I wouldn't think, but everyone is different I suppose.

The KX-Hi bars are really flat actually. Less rise than the stock bars and less sweep. My DRZ had them on it when I bought it and I've never had my hands go numb once on that bike, so I thought I'd try out the same bars on the Tenere.

I put the Raptor without risers and look quite high to me. No need risers at all.

The rear brackets look like they mount to the inside of the centre stand bolts is that right?

One of those camels was heard to say, "Hey there, aren't you Pluric? Looking for a date?"

Push and hold both buttons on the dash until the time starts blinking, then one of the buttons advances the clock and one changes between minutes and hours. I can't remember which.
