Enjoy, stay safe.
I noticed a picture of your bike in another thread and saw that you had the risers on it.

Where did you purchase them? Was it a recent purchase?

I bought my risers from Scootworks about four years ago for my Phantom. I thought, for some reason, they had quit making them.

thanks for the link

OK, thought you made the vid but saw it at that link.
So, I had refrained from commenting but now know it was not your vid, I have to ask why the guy took off all the controls/levers/etc. from the handlebars? (a rhetorical question, no need to answer).

Totally unnecessary in my view as I have changed risers without going thru the complexity of removing the controls only to re-install them after adding/changing the risers.
just sayin'

Thanks for the link. Even though I already have a set on my bike this type of a product is asked about from timr to time. I now have somewhere to guide folks asking.

At 1st glance, I was wondering if they were strong enough with being hollow down to where the threads on the bars were., If the lower part is the same as the 750 Ace they should be hollow down to the bottom of the thickest part. which leaves the strength of the shoulder area. Should be good. I was actually thinking of trying to make some similar ones on my lathe, don't know how to get an 8mm tap that deep in the 10mm hole. Must be a special deep hole tap or something... yep, $35 each,,,

As to going DIY
You could just use some metric all-thread and some spark plug socket to make "chrome" risers...or black sockets for "black" risers, no lathe needed.
As needing a long tap, there are tap extensions that are way cheaper than that tap or a 1/4 drive socket and extension could be used.

Edit: you'll need 2 10mm coupling nuts for that to work:

Those 8mm threads are 2+ inches down inside a 12mm hole My tap extension won't fit there.

Yeah, Once I measured an Ace riser, (assuming the Ace has the same length setup...) I realized the hole stopped before going into the Boss/stud part of the riser extension. no worries.

Seeing that garage door opener on the bars reminds me, Anyone got a link to the door opener that ties into the headlight so it opens the door when you flick the hi-beam on?
