I have the Genmar. They are real nice, quick shipping and easy install. I am 5-11 and they give me a little more reach. There are a few risers that are bigger.

risers

well i dont want to move forward cuz my knees are already hitting near the middle of the emblem on the tank. i would like to move back and lean back more. my arms are all the way extended when i lean back. ill post some pics later. im getting a seat custom made. so hopefully that will help the sitting further back problem.

I'm 6'2" also and I know what you mean. It's not reaching the bars that is the problem it's the slight hunch to reach low. I got the risers from Scootworks, easy install. It moves the bar about 2 to 3 inches up and also back. nice improvement and also looks cool and you will NOT have to change hoses or cables. cost about $100

Cool 900 custom risers

I have Scootworks round billet risers on my (orange) 2009 custom. They are perfect for me. I am 5' 10". My risers are 2 1/2 " long. I dont know if they have longer ones.

I just made risers yesterday total cost $21. [2] 7/8" deep sockets and bolts. Looks great and feel alot better, although I have only ridden around the block. Doing 250 miles today, so I'll know more this afternoon.
