After adding some handlebar risers I personally find the ride much more comfortable. I can now ride all day long without any fatigue! I know a lot of people like the look of the cafe, but in my opinion the scrambler look is just as cool. Here are the 41mm fork risers I got that pair with a 28mm fatbar. I believe they also make 22mm

Your bike looks great! I'm one of the guys that like the look of the 'clip on bars' and I wish to maintain that look, and I'm continuing to search for a way to raise them, but your modifications show how great the GT can look in a totally different class. Thanks for posting!    8)

I have a set of these Hitchcocks GT535 risers sitting in my garage.....really beautifully made product that was on my bike for a few days before I traded in the bike for another Enfield.

Please send me a PM if anyone is interested in a slightly used set. Thanks.

I bought a Himalayan top yoke thinking I'd be a smarty pants and save a few bucks, only to discover the triangulation was slightly different!  I cut the middle out and it fitted fine but looked to clunky on top of the original for me. Win some loose some but sure lost on that one. The Hitchcocks one looks ace but I suspect drilling the original yoke to take risers would look better if done right.
