In this handlebar riser review we evaluate what type of riser to choose to ensure your handlebars are at the correct height.

The combination of off-road and on-road riding permutations demand that your handlebars are at the proper level and position.

A motorcycles standard handle bar configuration often does not take this into account. Furthermore no two riders are the same size or proportion.


It is important then to ensure that one tailors ones riding position. To this end handlebar risers are the answer and contribute to a more upright riding position. Such a riding position relieves neck, shoulder and wrist discomfort and contributes to a trip that is more comfortable, safer and less fatiguing.

SW-Motech Handle bar risers are available in 2 permutations (30 mm upright and Vario Barback) and are CNC machined in Germany to precise specifications from the highest quality billet aluminium . Full German TUV certification is also included.

Motorcycle Handlebar Risers 30mm

A cost effective , quick and simple solution. Suitable for all dual purpose and other motorcycles .

NOTE: Brake, throttle and clutch cable length varies from bike to bike. To this end we have found that a 30 mm riser is suitable for the majority of models. Anything higher than this normally requires longer cables. We do not therefore stock or advise the 50 mm risers in the compatibly chart. These are however available on special order.
