Default Risers for apes

Does anyone have a good brand for risers for ape style bars? My bars diameter is 1". And I only want a rise of 1 maybe 2". Most of the risers I'm finding are for t bars.

I used the stock risers when I ran apes on my bike, but just about any Harley risers, as long as they are 2 piece risers will work.

I like the look of the stock risers and they worked well with my 14” apes.

Man those bars look good. My bike tt style bars and doesn't have risers so I have to get some regardless. But maybe I'll just go with the oem ones.

I got the brass balls keg risers but the diameter of the part that connects to the tree is too big

You can either return them, sell them or take them to a machine shop and have them turn down a bit to make them thinner.

I found some stock ones on eBay and am returning the kegs. I actually work at a machine shop and thought about turning them back a little but I also don't want to waste $100 if I end up not liking them on the bike.

I ran 1 1/2" risers on mine a while back. You just have to put washers under the brass risers to keep them off the top tree and the brass ones should work.
