Yes, I have them on my wing for over 27000 miles and they did just what they said it would do. It made the Wing very comfortable for me and I am 6'2" and 240 lbs.
They are very easy to install. 8)

The V&P's do help some. They do not raise the bars 1 1/2" like you asked however, nor do they bring them back. The MBL risers supposedly bring them up and back. I just got a set of the MBL's from HDL, but have not installed them yet, so I cannot give any feedback yet.

The V&P risers is a wedge. It roatates the grips up 1 1/2". You can turn the wedge around and that causes the grips to drop 1 1/2" as well. The MBL risers do move the grips back. I have had both.

I installed the MLB risers last summer and it definately improved riding comfort for me. The only other change I'd like to make is to change the angle of the grips about 5 to 10 degrees flatter.

I'm 6'1'. I installed the VP risers almost 2 years ago and they work fine for me. They take the strain out of your shoulders. They do this by raising the grips 1½ inches at the tip. This lessens your downward reach and gives the illusion of the grips being closer.

Hey....They work for me. :D

I installed the MBL's several months ago and they made a big difference for me in riding comfort. Brought the bars back and up.

Yes OK instructions are included. Install is pretty easy.

I've been using them for 29,000 and they removed the pain from between my shoulders.

For any who are using an aftermarket seat that moves you back or up, unless you have long arms, the VPs won't be of much help. Then you will have to take it all apart again to install the MBLs. Don't ask me how I know. :roll: :roll: :roll:

VP risers

I'm 5'11" and I installed the VP risers this past summer to see if it would correct the pain and numbness in my hands that I would get within 10 to 15 miles. They worked great. I also installed CE foam grips. The biggest test was the nine hour ride home from Delaware. No pain and no numbness. I like mine. :)
