    I was just wondering if anyone has fitted the 18mm handle bar risers to their 950/990 and if it makes any difference to normal road riding i.e. more or less comfortable?

    If anyone has a picture with them fitted I'd also be interested to have a look.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    I had the 18mm risers fitted to my bike... found it made a difference in height, control, etc... I do not have a close up picture, but these pic's taken of my bike (the Black one, top of the page) have the 18mm risers on it.

    On the other hand, I have now removed the 18mm ones, as I find they are not high enough for me and am using these Link here which I find make a huge difference for me. A bit more info - I am 6' or maybe a bit more with motocross boots on, and I prefer to ride standing...

    If you really want the 18mm ones, I can sell you my old ones as I will no longer use them and they are still in excellent condition (used for about 2 months) - here is the link for them Here :deal
