offset riser for 1 inch handlbars

Is there an offset riser for 1 inch handlebars? My 13 Nomad 1700 has a batwing style fairing. I had Chucksters risers, but I had to remove them when I installed the fairing. I've seen offset risers for 7/8" handlebars, but is there one available for 1 inch bars?

This is what I am looking for, but for our 1 inch handlebars.

Buy risers for 1 1/4" bars and use these adapters for 1 inch bars.

How about these ? Much more adjustability to get the handlebars exactly where you want them ?

Great idea. The stem is only 1 inch and the existing clamps are 1 1/2 inches wide. Do you see an issue with the length of the stem? I think I'll order a set and see.

Thanks for the tip.

The only problem might be the length of your wiring and cables ?
I have a set of these risers (4 inch rise) but did not fit them on my 1300 V Star because all the cables and wiring would have to be extended which I did not want to do. There was also an issue with the speedo. The risers would not go far enough into the original clamps because the upright of the risers fouled the speedo.

I have the Aeromach AM-4410C on my Nomad. They are a 4.25 inch riser and kept original cables, just had to reroute one of the brake lines

Thanks for the input. I have installed the 2 inch Rox Speed (extended stem) risers, and they do the trick nicely. I did have to unclip my cables to be sure none were stressed. Also, with the speedometer housing on the Nomad, I had to make sure the riser was high enough to not interfere. Once done, I am very satisfied. The handlebars are about 1 1/2 inches closer, which is perfect as one of my arms is shorter.
