Are interceptor 650 handlebar risers useful ?

The stock handlebar position with the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 may not be optimal for many folks. If you turn it towards the ride a bit it's more comfortable.It worked well for me, but it lacked height.  However from my experience, I prefer the upright positions rather than the forward lean position,  which gave some back pain on long rides.

So you can use handlebar risers to raise the height so you can ride comfortably without leaning forward. It will give a cruiser riding feel.


This pic is before using handlebar risers.

Sasi @ Bikers Shed Gurgaon at it (30 minutes)


You can see the elevated position

and Voila ... here is the cruiser feel and comfort position on long rides.



Please note, it also depends on each one's height and seating comfort etc. As my friend Jayan said.. the elbows should be free and loose. The risers give a feel of riding the good old Yamaha RX 100 ..only here its more than 6 times the power :)

Cheers,

Ride safe!
