The only ones I've ever seen are made by VMT (Voigt Moto Technik):

https://voigt-mt.de/index.php?k=5084&lang=eng

Available in standard 22mm and 30mm, also they do a 30mm with an offset which might be worth considering.

They do ship to the US but choose your shipping provider carefully at checkout as some carriers are by ocean freight.

I have used Rox Risers on my Tiger 800. Shoot them an email and ask tech@roxspeedfx.com they will want the bars diameter, can't see a problem.  :821:

Did anyone recently install any risers?

I've recently bought the Voigt Moto Technik but I'm having some difficulty in removing the original handlebar clamp to install the risers - do these usually come with loctite from the factory?

My previous bike was a Harley and it usually did not have any loctite on it anywhere (the myths about Harleys rattling themselves apart are true...) so I'm wondering whether I need to give the handlebar clamp bolts some heat or jus get a bigger wrench.

Bought better tools and finally installed the risers.

For anyone interested, I bough these offset risers - https://voigt-mt.de/VMT-Voigt-MT-Freiburg-Handlebar-risers-30mm-with-offset-21mm-for-Triumph-Trident-660-21-kit-bar-mounts-inch-pull-back_1

I'm 6'2 (189 cm) and these improved my comfort significantly.

Just installed the Voigt 30mm risers, fit is fine, there is length in the clutch cable and brake line and you can get some more free play in the control wiring with slight wiggling...
