    image.jpeg I have fitted 30mm handlebar risers, moves the bars back a little as well. Got a short 30 mile road test today and found the riding position very comfortable and together with the mirrors at a higher position giving a great rear view I am well pleased with this modification.

    Which Bonneville do you have SB and did you need to re route any cables etc.

    I have a 2017 T120, no need to reroute cables, no tightness.

    Hi sixties - After a 75-mile blast on my '16 T120 this morning, I think my shoulders and wrists would benefit from some risers, so if you don't mind my asking where did you get them from and how much ?
    Cheers

    Hi New member, welcome. I got the risers from www.classicbike-raisch.de
    German as you can see, very nice to deal with, I emailed first to sort out correct riser, then ordered it using PayPal, total cost was Euro 60.75, well packed, east fit, good quality metal and new Allen key bolt. For my bike there was no need to lengthen cables, they fitted ok, was out today for a ride, it helped my shoulder but not eradicate the pain completely, a slight modification of my upper body position has also helped. Hope this assists you. pleasant riding, Bob.

    Thank you for this. The T100 is comfortable for my 5'8 but touring screen being fitted this week, so this is helpful for me to sit up and beg whilst touring. I'll email them.

    I recently put such risers on my 2012 T-100 and it was a good decision. Got them from NewBonneville.com LLC in Murphy, TX. $55 including shipping. Much more comfortable at my 5'8".

    Good day,
    Just to let you all know, I heard back from Rainer at classicbike-raisch.de very quickly; it seems none of the risers for the T100 advertised on their site are designed to fit the newer water-cooled models.

    I really feel the need to raise my bars up a couple of inches, as the sliding forward movement on the squiddgy seat does nothing for the comfort of my male appendages; I have to get off every hour to facilitate a very welcomed freeing swinging motion. I wonder if placing a lifter of some kind under the front of the stock seat might help to stop me sliding forward?

    Also, regarding the furring post I read, I checked yesterday and am dismayed find rust in All spoke nipples, spots on the spokes themselves, also where the spokes crossover, and spots even forming on the rims themselves - plus in the suspenstion unit welds and silencer bolt welds.
    For an eight month old bike that has been treated with TLC this is truly disappointing quality; I have had numerous bikes over the decades and not witnessed this immediacy of corrosion on any of them.
    What's the best application to keep these beginnings at bay please?

    Come on Mr Bloor get with it, I think Triumph can afford to offer your customers, and importantly your Potential customers..., a higher quality of finishes.

    Strange, I got risers for my 2017 T120 and they fit great.
