I tried the 1" risers, and adding them was an improvement. However, purchased the CB500X handlebars and what an improvement!! They fit right in there perfectly and offer both a rise (approx 3") and a position back some.
You will also need the CB500X clutch cable, and even though one can get by with the original brake tube & throttle cables, it is best to replace them as well with the 500x equivalents.
Perhaps the hardest thing to get done is the bar end vibration dampeners, but once you figure them out, they are easy!
