Installing these steer-riser will result in a steer that is mounted 25mm higher. A higher steer gives a more upright sitting position, resulting in less pressure on your wrists.
Installing goes without much problems. For the XJ600S all cables are on the correct length and there is no need to disconnect them. Aprox. 15 minutes work.
Mounting these higher risers needs longer bolts (Imbus M8x60 strength 12.9)

Design and delivery
For as we know these risers aren't sold anywhere. The idea is copied and newly designed for the Diversion by a YDCN member. Two designs were made, of which one where the steer is not only brought 25mm up but also towards the driver. Tests showed that this gives a strange feeling so that designed was not develloped further.
An other solution for getting a more upright sitting position is mounting a XJ900S steer on a XJ600S.
