There is a set pretty cheap with slight rash, but straight.

Here is a guy that made his own and is selling them. They are actually better since the nuts and bolt collars are welded on and not braised.

I bought a RC that the owner had been using as a Sport-tour. Seem to be a logical person. He had used a Later model VFR OEM handle bars as raisers.. I wasn't convenienced. So, I installed on a spare set of SP2 forks I had hanging on the wall..
The set worked.. In opinions...

Geometry / Physics - Where the bars are set in the forks, is where "The Master" designer/engineer did the math and found the angle of the bars, and position- had the best "Leverage" to move the wheel, and still have feeback from the suspension..
Note- That the clip-ons are just below the upper triple. Put the Raisers on - Putting the 'Leverage" above, and at the end (or top) of the forks..-There is the Physics answer.
The riders position "Geometry" is changed.
