    True, unless i come up with a replacement riser that gives clearance... Then I could sell those to the mana guys with steering dampers AND the tuono guys.

    So haven't resolved the riser issue. I just can't see there being adequate space to use the stock mana risers. So you'll need to use the Tuono risers with these.

    Also, been getting quotes back from machine shops for producing these. Looking like I will probably need to sell them for around $160 for it to be worth while, assuming I can get ~10 orders. I'm trying to meet up with a guy with a shiver to see if they'll fit the shiver as is/with minimal modification. If so, that might bring the price down a little as I can order a larger quantity(and have more people to sell them to).

    You can't say something like that and not take pics!

    Yeah, we got to see that. I might have to print out a full color, life size picture of a new Stelvio and park that in my garage!

    What's the difference between the Mana and Tuono raisers, aside for the fact that the Tuono's are prettier and have the Aprilia logo?
    thanks

    That isn't the raisers you are talking about, that is the top clamp. The raisers on the Tuono are 25 mm lower and 25mm forward I believe... Point is they are lower and a bit more aggressive.
    Per Ed on the TV4 forum

    Exactly. The tuono risers push the bar forward and down a little bit. This extra clearance is critical for allowing the steering damper to work. It won't fit with the stock risers.


    On a positive not, some of the tuono guys will probably trade with you, so minimal cost difference.

    That will do too. Waiting for a shiver guy to meet up to test fit that bike and going to double check the fit with an ohlins unit, and then I'm going to place an order with a machine shop. Probably early next week.

    Good news!

    It fits the Shiver as well


    Again, as long as tuono risers are used.
