I fitted a set of these off ebay.
CNC Alloy Motorbike Silver Handlebar Riser Bar Grip for BMW F850GS/ADV 18-19 MU
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CNC-Alloy-Motorbike-Silver-Handlebar-Riser-Bar-Grip-for-BMW-F850GS-ADV-18-19-MU/193371713103?hash=item2d05da2e4f:g:G8wAAOSwebVeYcsj
They bring the bars up 25mm.
Ideal for touring and dodging about in the town. I think I prefer the standard position for more enthusiastic bend swinging where I prefer to have a bit of weight on my wrists.
Please note that with these risers fitted the clutch cable is juuuuuust long enough on full right lock. The brake line on the right seems to have more slack available than the clutch cable.
I suspect the risers that bring the bars up and back might be too much for the clutch cable. Check carefully when you fit risers.

Thank you Dave and Sparky.  :763:
Dave is worried that the ones you are talking about Sparky may be too far up and back and the clutch cable may be too stretched.
Did you fit them successfully to your F900 XR Sparky? I am talking about the 30mm up and 25 mm back. The ones you purchased
Dave will not ship to Australia.
Cheers Leon

Oh Sparky. :020: What have you done LOL :152:. At least you haven't spend a lot of money :028:
It would be nice if you fitted them this weekend  and told us whether  you have full lock to lock.
I'll be waiting for your reply. :038:

The downloadable manual for the Hornig set suggests changing the clutch line routing to free it up. My guess is it'll be fine - I'd love to know how you go, I'm also considering the same change.

Sparky12353 - did you install the risers yet?  Just wondering as I am possibly looking to do the same and would like to know how much this effects the clutch, riding position.  I would like the bars back just a bit for a bit of a more comfy riding position.
