Got a picture of them or a brand name? If the bar has a custom finish, you will likely not find matching risers. Risers typically come in chrome or black chrome. You'll probably have to find the risers you want and get them powder coated to match the bar.

I'm gone!

nice one bandit I've just had a look, it says they're for meanstreaks, but see you've got them on your 900 custom so presume it's the same fitting, i'll see about trying to get some ordered from the US, can't seem to find them in the UK.
cheers again

The stock bars are also chrome. If they are matte gray, then someone has altered them.

IF you do a search on ebay, you'll find tons of risers for cheap. I replaced my Barons pull-back risers with a set I found on ebay. They were less than $40 and look sick. However, the cheaper price also means the quality suffers, too. One of the cap bolt holes has begun stripping out and all of the bolts acted like they were a non-metric size being force into a metric hole. I had to buy hex bits because the triple-tree bolts were long and really stiff for a standard hex wrench.

Check out the link in sig for pics of the risers.

I'm gone!

thanks for that Frizzman thought as much, now here's another question, its got the standard pipes on it, is it possible to run pipes without the sensor or do I need to spend a fortune on after market ones, how does that affect the fuel injection also if possible what happens to the sensor plug
cheers
