    Bar risers 09 xb12r

    Any bar riser kits for this bike that are easy to install, I am not really mechanically inclined. Inch higher would work for me

    Yes. And anything that fits a Harley Sportster will work. 4 bolts, very simple but also VERY important. Got a 'Car Guy' buddy? Take him a 6-pack and hang out in his garage for 20 mins while he does it for you

    Your clip ons are incorporated into your top triple clamp. Woodcraft makes clip on risers but they will have to be the correct mm for your fork tubes and you will still have the spot where your original bar went into the top triple but it will just be empty. I still don't think your going to get the results your looking for becuse the woodcraft ones will be lower than your clamp. So it will probably be like pissing in the wind but you can call them and check their measurements for rise.

    Firebolt is more of a pain in the a-s to do then the Lightning. Can it be done, sure but it will cost way more money and personal don't think it is worth it. Just my 2 cents it's your bike.

    Is the XBR the first bike you’ve owned with a sport bike type riding position?
    If so, I recommend tank/frame grips and when riding concentrate on using your legs(by squeezing the bike) and your core muscles to take the strain off your wrists.
