GenMar Handlebar risers opinions wanted

Anybody have experience with this company and the product. Specifically I am interested in getting risers for my 2001 Triumph Sprint ST. All responses are appreciated.

I bought a pair for my 955i RS (same riser as your bike), and the are nicely made and fitted with no problems. On my bike I don't have to change anything to fit them - I think on the ST you have to change the fr brake line??

Anyway, they work, but I prefer the original, sportier stance of the bike so I'm thinking of taking them off again. Do you want to buy them?

I've been real happy with them on my ZX9. They make a real difference on long trips, but you don't seem to know they are there on short rides. I've been running them for over a year now with no issues. And they were a simple bolt-on for mine.

Ive been using a pair of Genmar risers every day on my VTR since 1999. They still look new so the materials are good.The company delivered as promised, and the product installed as designed and works well with no clearance problems. I give them two thumbs up although if I could do it over again I would probably buy helibars so I could adjust the angle of the bars and not just the height.

Thumbs up Risers

I can offer four "thumbs up" as well.

I ordered some for my girlfriend's Concours. The people at the factory were very accomodating, voluntarily offering the same price as the lowest price on the web. I got them in a couple of days, and took about 15 minutes to install them, including the time to round up the tools.

Nice quality, nice finish, everything as advertised.

My girlfriend now has a shorter reach, and a more comfortable riding position.
