Ok ALL get your minds out of the gutter so I can proceed 😂
Maybe due to my years on motors I became so use to the parade posture , upright, back straight and feet a little forward, that the riding position on my 02 Stone was not quite comfortable. I had to lean forward a little and always felt like I was reaching for the bar grips. That would cause lower back discomfort after a time.
When I determined that I needed the bars slightly higher and back I started searching for a fix.
Reveilla had just the fix. I had to come up with a couple different factors of size due to the addition of a set of 1400 bars and having to shim to get them to work. The young fella at Rev was very patient and after giving him the measurements of everything determined that the 11/8 risers would work. Upon receiving them the installation went smooth without having to redesign, fabricate or fire up the torch or welder.
So yes an 11/2 sure did make a difference in this case 👍😉

 I put Bassa bars on my old Jackal. Made a huge difference- for the better.
