Default where can I get handlebar risers?

I just bought a 599 that has aftermarket lower handlebars, racing bike style. I would like to get some like the original, but can't find a source. Anybody here know?

Renthal sells a number of bar shapes and heights, and some are very close to stock 599.

I see risers on eBay all the time.

You could probably swap bars with someone, lower bars is a common mod.

Actually, I am getting accustomed to the lower bars. I don't think I'll raise them.

I really like the lower bars on my bike. The only issue I have is that my bars need to be wider. To keep my handlebar controls from touching the tank I had to rotate the bars forward a couple degrees. This isn’t terrible but it does cause me to hold my wrists in a way that isn’t entirely relaxed. So far, and even so during track time, this isn’t an issue but instead just something I’ll fix some day.
