You are right, Spike. That's what I've found so far by searching here.
However, all those threads I found were old (some even a decade) and all the links to products expired.
Any chance you have links to the Aeromach or Rivco pullback risers? I did try to Google but I do not seem to be good at getting any useful results.

FWIW, worst case scenario (isn't really "the worst case"), I make me some "riser risers" (spacers) to go under the stock risers. I am decently skilled at machining and an engineer to boot so when I find some free time, I'll go for it.

The riser swap is a very comfortable mod.

Careful. That statement might be taken out of context very easily.
Thanks for the link, those look like the correct risers with desired rise and pullback numbers.

Thanks, Spike, I've been to those before. No luck searching on their websites.
But again, I am now very seriously considering making my own riser risers (or "riser steps"?) to avoid any problems with the speedometer-mounted tach etc.

My main question now is whether the 6" pullback risers make the speedometer obstruct the top row of the warning lights on the fuel tank. When I checked it with a tape measure last night, it seemed like it would pose a decent obstruction. I might actually post a separate new better-visible thread for this question.

Do a google search for them. I did and found them over $20 cheaper at the link below. I guess I got luckier

Aeromach AM-3490P is the model you would need. These are the same ones I have on my 1800C

Good luck

Thank you very much for the model # and the link (with a lower price, woo! ).

Got any pictures from the seated position? I am very curious to know whether the new position of the speedometer over the tank blocks the top row of the indicator lights.
