I wrapped some 'insulation tape' round my riser bolts so they were the same thickness as the oem ones Eazy, it just made them central through the 2" risers.

Still playing with the tilt of the bars but so far definitely more comfortable.
Cant decide which is best, lower bars or higher bars. I guess ideal is so your wrist is a little bit lower than your elbow for best blood circulation.

For me it's the wrist a little bit lower than the shoulder, but that's not for everyone.
Glad your pleased with your new position Eazy, a comfy riding position, makes for a safer rider. thumup

If it feels ok then go with whichever bar you want but don't overdo it as we're in the UK not California where it's a lot warmer!
