    Variable by your height, arm length, and your torso length. Also variable by seat position and whether stock, in high or low position, or custom seat. Sorry to not be of the type of answer I think you were looking for.

    Usually they come up .75 inch, and back .75 inch, or close to that dimension. Believe it or not, it does not seem like much but it does make a difference. Mine also happened to move the bars wider about 1 inch total, which I liked. Hope this helps.

    So what flavor did you use?

    These

    http://www.ascycles.com/detail.aspx?ID=1596 Cost $60 and were well worth it.

    I'm 6'4" and they let me sit a tad more upright, easier on my back.

    Wanderer, you actually gave me somethings to think about. I want to try a OEM seat and maybe get rid of the aftermarket seat that came with the bike. So, I better wait on the risers.
    Thanks

    Below is the link to the thread that I posted on my risers awhile back. It has a pic. Read my post before the pic and the buying info is there. Bought them from Bob's. I really like them.

    Thanks Leadfoot, I'm going to experiment with another seat for my bike and once I get that straightened out I will be trying to do something with the bars. I'm keeping your link.

    risers

    I think it is called moto solutions-either way they have an ad in every ON and they are the cheapest.
