Handlebar diameter on my 2015 explorer where the risers attach is 1-1/8".  I bought the vibration isolation version of the rox risers.  Great piece of kit, just be careful of the cables when you're installing them.  You might have to take them out of their holders and reroute them a bit.

Diameter of the actual handlebar, ie 22mm, looked at different advice.

I thought the bar diameter was more like 28mm (1 1/8") at the points where the bars mount, 22mm (7/8") is the standard bar size which I think it is at the ends

You are correct, where the risers would connect is 1 1/8 inch or 28.575mm.   They taper down at the ends.

I saw some excilent looking ones on a super ten the other day.

2d-GT they were called and aloud you to adjust where the bars were forward and back.   They looked really smart.
