I saw a thread suggesting that risers can intensify handlebar buzz. Any truth to that?

I dont see how people complain about the handlebar buzz on this bike maybe I just got lucky but yea because they are longer that will amplify the vibrations like a lever

I found that fitting Murphs Gel Grips virtually eliminates buzz even with 2" risers.
