I'm 6'4" and the stock risers on my 990 Adv were fine for street & Hwy but off road, where I find myself standing 80% of the ride, it could be a struggle at times to maintain control of the bike. As well, my back and arms would fatigue after just a 1/2hr of jeep trails.
A 2" rise seemed a lot, but following recommendations of other tall riders, I went straight for the taller risers and found both on & off road riding changed for the better, specially off road.
Installation couldn't be simpler; I rotated my throttle cables from above the bar to below to add some slack. Because they can be pivoted along the stock bar mounting axis, I was able to set the bars a little inboard of the stock position, essentially straight-up from stock.
I'm not stooped when riding off road, my back and arms don't tire as easily, I can ride faster with more control and even though I've had a couple of get-offs, they're solid and don't slip.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Reevu MSX1 Helmet - Solid Colors The world's first rear-view helmet. Reevu has been the industry leader in rear view technology with their patented mirror system, manufactured from a reflective polycarbonate material rather than glass. The polycarbonate material is almost impossible to break, weighs less than glass and provides additional safety and comfort to the rider. The mirror system essentially bends the light around the shell of the helmet, offering a clear view of what's behind. The Reevu System works just like a car's rear view mirror offering awareness of the road ahead and behind without making a conscious effort as both are simultaneously in your field of view. Features Patented rear-view technology Tri-composite carbon fiberglass, Kevlar and synthetic hi-tenacity advanced fiber shell Fully removable and washable liner Anti-fog face shield The Reevu Mobility Program gives the rider an opportunity to replace their Reevu helmet that has been damaged in a crash with a new one at just 1/2 of the price Note Helmet ships with clear face shield.

I'll admit it: I love gadgets, and the idea of this helmet was intriguing.
First thing, the fit is perfect for my 58cm oval head. I ordered a medium; the fit is very snug with no pressure points and the check pads are nice and snug.
The visor is distortion free and has a very wide field of view. Visor fitment is adjustable, though I'm not sure why it needs to be: scews securing the hinge mechanism can be loostened to allow fine tuning of the visor closed position (the bottom edge of mine wouldn't seal until I fooled with the hinge adjustments).
The helmet is noisy, but earplugs take care of most of it.
The rear view mirror is great for city and other close-quarters riding (read 'lane splitting'). And like in the other reviews, you'll find it takes a little while to get used to and learn how to effectively utilize the rear view feature. With the amount of "fisheye" distortion present, images in the rear view mirror are all but useless in open highway riding.
The rear view mirror is usefull for about 75% of the riding I do: city , around town and twisties where some of the locals follow you so closely you can't see them in your regular mirrors.
Another downside is that I can't wear my polarized sun glasses with it becase the polycarbonite prism device turns black when I look in the mirror wearing them.
Overall I like this helmet, I think it offers good protection and the rear view mirror is very usefull once you learn how to use it: It's a keeper.
