Paul, unlike a lot of folks on this site, I'm no pro...only been riding a couple of years actually. I'm a tall guy, so knew I wanted the risers. Then I was faced with risers for a 7/8" bar, or 1 1/8", 'fat' bar. Risers were the same price either way. Figured for the relatively cheap price of the Chub bar I'd give it a shot vs. wishing I had later.
Which bend to go with was a crap shoot, but in looking at various threads it seemed like the CR High Bend was a popular choice for the KLR. Who am I to argue? Gave them a shot, and along with the risers, yes, I like the feeling a lot better...especially when standing.
Later, I added some Tusk hand guards. With the aluminum backing on those I unfortunately had to rotate the risers back about 1/2" so there was no interference between the hand guard and the fairing at full stop. I'd rather have that 1/2" back, but not worth damaging the fairing to me. Hope that helps.
Tried to include a pic, but clearly I'm not smart enough as the site seems to want a URL for the pic. Not sure how to include one from my phone or desktop.
