I bought some knock-off type rox risers from ebay, well machined and a cinch to fit, approx £45. Had to play around with them for a few rides as it did change the bikes geometry and made slow speed manoeuvres a little more difficult to begin with as the bars are considerably closer, however they greatly reduce the lean over angle and after a few weeks they feel normal now, definitely a worthwhile upgrade.

at 5 foot 6 and relatively short armed, i put some rox rissers on totally transformed the bike, allowing me to reach the bars with comfort,fitting was simple no mods required, . I have also fitted new rear suspension arms to lower the bike by 1" at the rear carrier, this has given me a much safer feel, i can get both balls of my feet on the floor, one flat if i shuffle over slightly, making it feel much safer especially 2 up, I have yet to lower the forks through the yolks to maintain same fork rake and lower bike even more.

Yeah Mk1 bars definitely were harder to reach!
I still don't have the need to rise them on my '18.

My Gen1 is now set up real nice for my 6’4” old body.
No risers but lower, more forward foot pegs, taller saddle and taller suspension did the trick. The slight lean to the bars gives my back relief.
Also flat footed with both feet. ;-)

I agree, last gen's ergonomics are definitely better.

But I can't help it - I am way too hunched forward when I am standing up. I got 20 mm risers from SW-Motech, which supposedly fit the new gen. The previous ones didn't fit. We'll see, the temps are still at 30F level here in NYC and I don't have a garage. I can ride with heated gloves, but I tried - I cannot work with them. So, I'm waiting for an opportunity to fit them and give it a try...

Don't know how you live under those conditions. Well, at least it good weather for you to get out there and rake your woodlands...   :038:
