Decent, but a severe pain to get on. Took 2 of us quite a bit of time twisting and tightening and loosening and readjusting and re-tightening to get these on right. It stunk because the risers and the bolt are 2 seperate pieces (unlike the stock ones where the nut is the only seperate piece). We also had to drill bigger holes in the windshield mount and cable guide plate since the bolts were larger than the stock parts. The fit is okay but they push me back in the seat a little far - rise is okay but pullback is too drastic for this bike. Will be in the hunt still for either different risers or a new set of handlebars. Wasn't too keen on the fact that the chrome screws have already started rusting in the allen holes. Need to get some plugs to cover that up. The upside of these was bringing my aftermarket mirrors up over my sleeves so I can see better behind me, and the burn in my left shoulder isn't there anymore - traded it for an elbow ache though! A more updated review..... I had these risers removed this year and put on a different set of handlebars. The new handlebars made a world of difference. Looking back I wouldn't waste my money on these. They make the bike look like a patchwork quilt. See the review on the Baron's Starbar!
