WTB vario risers

Interested in Wunderlich or similar Vario Risers. Must be the pull-back type, I am currently using the standard risers but would like the handlebars also back a bit more.

I installed these Wunderlich raisers with 3 x backwards adjustable position settings. Very happy with the end result. However, I needed to install a longer brake hose.

I have a set of Moto Verholen bar risers on my '09 R. They bring the bars back and up about two inches which is very nice, and they don't look too bad (not as clean as stock, but having the bars back is worth the minor aesthetic downgrade).

Here they are for your bike. I recommend going with a slightly longer front brake line.

I like both of those risers, but I am a bit reluctant to shell out that much for any of them....That why I had posted this on the WTB forum, you don't want to sell me yours, do you ?

I found these at Touratech, they are not of the "vario" type but at least bring the bars up and back somewhat:

I have those on mine, I am not selling but the original owner installed them and I have what looks like a 3 inch extension brake line added to the original line.
So if you do get them you may also need to add length to the brake line, just a heads up.

Yes I believe I will have to do that too, with my risers now (just 25mm up) the line is stretched to the max already. Hmm...thinking about it. The longer line is actually much cheaper at Wunderlich as compared to Touratech!

It almost seems to me that with the Verholen I would also need a longer clutch cable. Is there anyone with a CamHead who can confirm this?
