    Bar risers from M&P

    Fitted a pair of risers from M&P today. Big difference to how the bike feels to ride, & also how it looks.



    They are on sale & cost only £40 incl postage- very cheap compared to the alternatives.

    Easy to fit & seem very solid, though quality probably not quite as good as the ones from CNC-Moto - - see the tip of the bolt which is left poking out.



    The main reason I've installed risers is because of elbow joint problems. I'll know in a few days if these are making any difference.

    Looking good!
    I have issues with RSI mostly in my right forearm from power tools.
    So been thinking about this lately.
    I know the CNC-Moto ones are well made and finished but worth the extra?
    That grub screw could always be either cut down and/or a stainless one put in its place..

    Can you recall how much they raise the bars?
    Also, any issues with brake or clutch lines stretched too much??

    Cheers

    Thanks Timmy, & my sympathies re: the RSI.

    I haven't measured the rise, but it's supposed to be 37mm per M&P's description.

    The cables don't seem overstretched. I'll post an update after I've been for a proper ride.
