Bar risers?

Can anyone tell me if bar risers change the handling characteristics of bikes?

Re: Bar risers?

I had Heli's on my 929 for numerous track days and they handled just fine. I put them on shortly after buying my bike and I can honestly say, they do not affect handling at all, at least for me they didn't.

Re: Bar risers?

I put the helibars on my CBR1000 about two months after I bought it and didn't notice any difference in handling but then I don't take the bike to the track so that would be the true test. I have noticed a big difference in taking the bike on long trips across the state which were a blast. The neck fatigue was greatly reduced with the helibars in my situation. I'm 6'0 tall.
