K1200s Bar Riser Advice?

Just got my 2005 k1200s and have put a few miles on it. My wrists and hands have been bothering me, so I've concluded I'm going to need some bar risers. I had a 2006 VFR and it came with risers so I never tried it without but I can say that I didn't have the same issues I'm having with the k1200.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking back....the BMW is by far the best bike out there! I love it! I just need a slight adjustment.

So, im asking for some input on 2 things:

Who sells the best bar risers (or should I go through my dealer - Carolina BMW in Greensboro, NC)?

And since I'm not the most mechanically inclined I am planning on having my dealer install whatever I buy, what do you folks think I'm looking at from a labor cost standpoint?

Any input will be highly appreciated!

I put the Wunderlich conversion on my '06 K1220r about a month after I bought the bike. I been riding this bike for over 4 years with this conversion. Works great for me (link below)

I had the dealer do the installation. I think it was 2 hours labor. This is not a cheap solution, but works great and looks good.

Here's the link to my bike in the member bike pic section. You can see the bars.

Pirate's Lair has risers that look to be very easy to install yourself. Others have done it, not me, so I don't know how hard it is to get all the stuff off the stock setup and onto the new.

I bought my K1200S with a straight bar and riser conversion. That may be an option for you.

If you are looking for 2 inch Verholen risers, send me a message. I think a local friend still has his and may want to sell them.

Any other pictures of that I think I seen those bar risers before I also remember there being a complaint that the cables were in front of the speedo after they were installed I think with those risers the brake and clutch cables have to be replaced with longer ones if I’m not mistaken possibly the throttle as well

Here you go. They were on the bike when I purchased it. The steel brake lines could be longer than stock. The wires to the switches depend on the angle of the adjustment. There is a lot of adjustment. They can be adjusted were they slide in the original mounts on the triple clamp and were you slide your bars in the risers.
