Hi, I love your website! I'm in SA and got my yellow can am (auto) 3 days ago. I lifted the standard handle bars with a high rise handle bar part. Could anybody please tell me if there's any after market parts for these handle bars to be lifted for an even more straight up position? Is the new RT model handle bars more upright than the Spyder RS? Are they compatible (RS on RT?) Awesome trike!!:)

Hi I have carpal tunnel in my wrists and when I took my first ride at Prorider the bike was standard and it hurt like all heck! then I went on the brp ride and the bike there had the 3" kit fitted and was better by the time I was ready to get mine I took the phanton kitted bike out for a ride with the 3" kit again and decided to get that, when I ordered mine they had the new 4" kit so thats on my bike now and it is so good easy on the back and wrists but it should have been more tourer than racer from the get go, mine will be for everyday work by the second week february and looking forward to that day! I shall be retiring my old Virago thats done around 750, k"s
Hope you enjoy your bike not trike

I found a kit to raise an additional 3 inches on top of the 1 inch factory riser. I ordered them from a company called Custom Dynamics

Custom Dynamics Risers

Custom Dynamics manufactures the Street Magic Risers which can be found here:
Can Am Spyder Footpegs, Grips and Accessories

The risers are one of our best selling Spyder accessories, they are available in a 3" and 4" version. If you have the BRP 1" risers previously installed, you can only add our 3" so that you have a total of 4".

These Custom Dynamics Street Magic products are distributed by ESI and many others.

Thanks Dave

I had a 09 Spyder and the bars position was really bad for me. Traded it in for 2010 RT and the handle bars are perfect for me, along with everything else!!:)

My wife checked out an '09 Spyder at the local dealer today. Since we have to sell a bike first, I expect she'll probably be getting a 2010 (RS) model. She's an experienced rider and knows what position she's comfortable in. We've had to change seats, handlebars and foot pegs / boards on pretty much all of her bikes over the years. First thing she noticed on the Spyder is the handlebar issue. She feels she'd need to not only have the grips UP 2" (which seems easy enough with risers) but will also need to come BACK about 2". Do any of the risers / handlebars on the market bring the grips closer to the rider?

Kewlmetal risers is what you just described...

Installation video ->> Kewlmetal adjustable risers.

Kewlmetal web site

Depending on the extent of the modification you may get into haing to extend some of the cables though.

Just had KewlMetal risers installed on our 2010 RS and it mades all the difference in the world! They are fully and easily adjustable. Along with a crampbuster, it's a totally new ryde !!!!
