Welcome aboard!  I got mine from Murphs and they work as advertised.    http://murpskits.com/catalog/    Prices are competitive, the service is great, and they are Coggers.

Best and most expensive are probably the Heli bars.  They are multi-adjustable in many different directions and all three dimensions.    Then you get the simple riser blocks, like the Genmars, and I believe Murph has them as well (www.murpskits.com) from Kevin Baker.    The third type I'm familiar is the adapter to allow allow normal tube bars to be used, so you can get the bend that you want from the aftermarket.  Murhp has these as well.    While you're in there, consider adding grip heaters and maybe some better grips.    Murph's grip heaters work OK (the under-grip bar wrap type), and he has a really neat plug and play solution with his accessory fuse block.  If you ride in really cold temperatures, IMHO these don't work as well.    I like the Oxford Heaterz Grips from www.whitehorsepress.com a lot, very efficient design, and although a bit expensive, they do include an electronic controller rather than a 3-way switch.
