Handlebar riser height for 6'3" person

Hey guys - im looking at those roxx speed handlebar risers as I'm finding that I can't really ride standing up that well as my bars dont come up high enough (stock).

Does any one know whether the 2" are going to be good for me? Or do I need the 3.5"? Hard to visualize to be honest.
I'm 6'3".

My gut is that 2" should be just fine.

Many thanks

2 inch would be enough get a little more if add the cecco steering stem brace gives a nice lift, Im 61 and 2 inch is perfect, also more then 2 might have to ditch oem brake lines and replace with longer lines somthing to think about because in my experience the brakes can be a pain to bleed sometimes.

Ya anything more then 2" will be a pain to install, even the 2" requires a bit of tweaking of the brake lever to gain a bit of slack. Im 6'2 and liked the 2".

Thanks guys thats really great to see first hand experience plus your heights. I dont mind doing some work if i need to extend lines etc.
But sounds like the 2" should be good. I guess I don't my hands really high in the air when I am sitting down :P

May still want to take a look at the steering brace the 2 rise really makes it seem weak and there is a lot more movement but you can judge after installation what/if anything is needed

Cecco Racing makes a brace with a riser incorporated into it.

ROX 2" Bar risers FTW. They are awesome, install isn't bad. No modifications needed to make them fit. I can stand up almost 100% straight now I'm 6' 1". Far better than no risers at all.

im 6'2 with 2 inch rise and the ceeco stem brace. i would not add the risers with out the cecco stem brace, the stock stem is already weak and the extra leverage will bend that stem quick..
