what barbacks to get for an RS?

My new to me 02 needs the bars to come up a bit. I has the type 2 suburban machine bar backs on my 03 GT but they never seemed right. I am also thinking that those may have been to high. I have considered the basic 30mm risers. Som what do you guys recomend? Will i need to run a new brake line on my 02 RS for 30mm risers?

I had the 30mm. American Machine barbacks from Pirate on my '04KRS. I liked them. Barbacks are very subjective. I'm 5'8" W/30" inseam.
The 30mm. barbacks took the weight off my wrists and made for a very good ride.
You don't have to replace or relocate any lines or cables on a '04KRS with the 30mm. barbacks. Simply cutting any ty-raps on the switch wiring made things right. Although at full right lock the brake hose is at max. length!!
