Here's a picture of my Kawasaki Vulcan VN800 Classic with the my 5 1/2" x 1" handlebar risers made to order by Buffalo Chrome. Unfortunately, these are no longer available. The risers we now use on our bikes are stronger, much beefier, and even less expensive. They are called 'Phatrisers II' , and they're available from www.scootworks.com on their Kawasaki Handlebar Riser page.
They bring the handlebars up and back so my arms are no longer stretched outright, and I can reach the controls in a more relaxed position. The 5 1/2" x 1" risers clear the instrument nacelle and allow the front end to pivot from lock to lock without bumping, a problem the 800's have with the shorter risers. Also, all of the stock cables and hoses were of adequate length and only needed to be re-routed around the front of the triple clamp to work correctly. There is now a shorter version of the riser available for the 800 Classic, "A", and Drifter models that does not bump the nacelle, for those who don't need as much pulback as I did. They are called the standard 'Phatrisers' and the 'Phatrisers 1-X' . You can find them in the links above.
