Most of the threads related to the topic are about adding bar risers. I'm actually thinking to remove mine.
My 2016F came with 20mm risers but the previous owner was considerably taller then me.
I'm 5'9" (175cm) and feel I'm sitting too upright. With Puig touring screen I'm still getting a bit too much wind into the helmet.
I will remove risers and turn bar a few degrees closer to me.
Any comments from similar height riders?
Cheers,
D.

I'm actually considering removing and not using risers at all. Was soliciting opinions of others with similar height riding without risers.
Thank you for recommendation,
D.

I'm 5'11" so just a little bit taller than you but to me the riding position was too hunched over without the risers in place. I found myself doing the ol "turn sideways and use 1 hand on the bars" trick even on short trips to try to relieve my back.

If you're in your 20s this might not be a problem for you lol.
