Anyone using bar risers from motorcycleproducts.org?

I want to put some bar risers on my Wee-Strom. Pennies are tight right now, and these are cheap. Anyone got opinions?

If pennies are tight (been there , done that) , look at the ebay risers (3/4" if memory serves) , that just slip in under the bar and use the OE top clamp. Bought a set for my Vstrom for about 25ish dollars shipped.

Those are not particularly cheap, price wise.
If you just want the vertical block risers, yea there are less expensive versions out there.

Assuming you are looking for the offest ones, for less money you can get these.

I have put these on a few bikes, they offer lots of flexibility in position and are very solid (unlike ROX)

Those look nice! I like that they have a pivot point to adjust the position. Thanks for the link!

I bought some Tusk risers from Rocky Mountain.

Seem to be okay for the price.

Sorry, I dont have direct knowledge of using these on a Strom.
I did not find these until after the time that I had a Strom.
I have had to do some re-routing on other bikes, but never have had to replace anything. I suspect the same is true on the Strom.

I did notice this review on Amazon which backs up what I believe:
"Perfect for my V-strom 650. With some careful wire and cable routing, it works great. Installation was a snap."

FWIW if you can find details of anyone who has used 2" rox risers on the Strom, whatever is needed for the 2" rox to work will be identical with these.

Oh, those are MUCH cheaper! Not sure if I like them compared to the PowerMadds, though. How do you like them so far?

I bought those as well a few months ago. No problems at all so far and I can't really complain for that price.

Where to begin?

Pretty simple chunks of aluminum. I don't foresee any problems, but time will tell. We are in the grips of winter so I haven't tested them (or installed them) yet. I had a pair on another bike. Different source but they looked exactly the same. Worked fine. No bling, like the PowerMadds, but they blend in and aren't even noticeable.
