handlebar risers

What are your impressions of the handlebar risers, now that you've had them for awhile? I'm thinking of doing the same thing. What brand? Where purchased? Ease of installation? Cost? Any before / after pics?

What do you think of the Metzler 880's

Metzler 880

I had a set of them--only lasted about 2500 miles. I've heard other guys luv 'em, but we ride 2-up and pull a trailer. They just didn't cut it. Have had Elite 3's and Bridgstones that also couldn't handle the load.

That's when I went to the darkside, and will never go back. With the CT on the back, the bike tracks like it was on rails. Need the pressure to about 44 and even the cornering is fine. Dunlop 195/60/16 :yes1:
