I'd same as tyke on mine with a small givi tankloc bag. It does touch very slightly on full lock but it's not a problem.

or save yourself some $$ and get a $30 generic one off of ebay.

I got one that fit my 2019 1000 se lt just fine.  I did have to use a dremel to rough up the inside a bit to grip the bar nicely, but that only took a minute.

I hoped risers would help relieve the discomfort in my hands, wrists, and shoulders. Helped a little...but not much.
Eventually installed a set of Holeshot touring bars, designed specifically for the V1k, and that made a world of difference.
I used to do self deprecating humor, but I wasn't very good at it.
