Want Handlebar Riser recommendation

I am looking for handlebar risers to get my handlebars closer. I ride a 2006 VTX1800S.
I have found several that should fit, but would feel better buying one that has an owner's testimonial.
Any recommendations or warnings will be appreciated.

Most R model riders, swap to C model risers for a little more length.

Thanks Earl. These look really nice. Will I be able to use the stock cables with these risers?

Earl, When I looked to see if these risers would fit my 06 1800S, it said they don't fit. I check again for the 03 1800R and S and once again it shows No Fit.
Is your bike either an R or S and did you have any issues installing the risers?
Thanks for your help.

Mine is a 2003 1300 R. The risers will fit your bike also, no mater what the add says.

My stock risers have 12mm fine-pitch threads.
I thought all Hondas used metric units, am I wrong?
