2013 Handlebar Risers

Looking for just the riser not a complete replacement of the triple tree (helibar), does anyone make them for the 2013 (Gen 3).

I bought these risers and installed them with ease. As the instructions are crudely translated from German to English, I do have a question.

What is supposed to be the stock setting for bar angle? I'm assuming right in the middle of the adjustable range. Does anyone know for sure?

I have those too, but not sure "stock setting" is applicable term to this device. The base of the bars is higher and moved back to begin with. Even if you retain the exact stock angle the grips won't be located anywhere close to the original position anyway. I assume you are asking just from curiousity, as in practically terms it doesn't matter, just put them where you like them. For me it was all the way back, as far as they went.

P.S.
It's very important that you have sufficient slack on electric and brake lines on complete turns to either side. I had to release a clip on the electric line, it was too tight to my taste as it was.

Ok bought the risers from Lionswings and want to put them on this weekend. Do I really need to take off the top triple tree for this? and get rid of the holders for the wires? What do you do with the wires afterwards, just use some zip ties?

For simple riser installation, you should not have to remover the triple clamp. Just the bars, lay on the risers, and place the bars on top of them. (probably with longer bolts).
As far as the wiring/lines go, you will have to judge that after, or perhaps during, the installation. You will should have enough slack since you are just going up.... and not back. But you may have to pop a wire tie. Just be certain to test it all out after the job by starting the bike, letting it warm up to a steady ide speed, then turn the wheel from lock to lock several times. Look for binding wires and make sure the engine speed does not change while turning lock 2 lock.
