    I tried Rox 2" adjustable risers, but the pin that goes into the hole in the stock bars kept me from installing them. I also wanted to do this without changing cables. I think the 1" would work for that, but how do I get around the pin issue? Or, are there other pullback risers or handlebars that would work better?

    Were you able to fit the 1" Taller than stock risers without adjusting any of the cables? Or are those Rox risers the Same Height as the Stick ones but Adjustable?
    I would like to lift my handlebars 1" if its not too much work.
    (I removed the stock bar clamps recently and tried lifting the bars to see how high I could get them, it seemed like maybe 1/2" to 3/4" higher was all I could get)

    I just did a bar swap with a set of Seans superbike bars, i can imagine 1 inch wouldn't make a huge difference though.

    Do those new bars have any more of a Bar End Rise than our stock handlebars?

    no, there is actually less rise, puts the rider in a more forward position.
