The block will go at the angle of the stock risers. I never measured the projected angle in which they go. And if you are just thinking about getting new longer risers all together, there are differences. For example the Kewl Metal ones vs Rivco's risers.

The "blocks" keep the same shape as the risers. Basically sit on your bike, and envision your handlebars closer to you by 2". If you go aftermarket risers, they will be different. The rivko's tend to be a little bit lower. The kewlmetal ones tend to arch up just a little more putting the bars a little higher and back about as much as the blocks. You might be best served posting in your local chapter to see who may have what so you can check them out in person to see if it will work for you.

Hey D... I just got a set of 2" extenders because I lean to far forward, 2" will have you sitting up more and leaning forward less.
