Just wanted to get some thoughts on those who have changed their clip ons to the 1.5" (or higher) bar risers.

I've been riding the R3 for a couple years now and am eyeing the R7 as my next bike, but unfortunately there aren't many places around me that allow demos and/or have stock at the moment.

Could anyone give me an idea on the riding position of say a stock R3 vs the R7 (with 1.5" clip on bar risers)?

Much appreciated

It's not a bad riding position. Its slightly more neutral than the r6 but not signinifcantly. I believe it sits at 23.7 degrees. I am also 20 but I am fairly tall(or like to think I am tall at 6') but it doesn't seem too small or cramped(some friends think its cramped but then get on a 600 and think its roomy, so I think its a mental thing). I only notice issues in my wrists after about 2-3 hours at least if I am on the highway. If I'm on back roads I don't notice it because I am moving all around on the bike.

This. Could'nt agree anymore. I'm 6'4 and also find it comfortable at most times (y)
