Questions about handlebars and risers

Going with black handlebars. Also, my upper triple is powdercoated black, but the top riser clamps are not.
Instead of getting the clamps powdercoated separately, will something in here: black risers honda | eBay
work as a replacement?

And, by default, I was going to get the Renthal road mediums, as I like the standard height and pullback.
Would a set of these work instead?
Dimotiv 22mm Handlebar Original Height Kawasaki Suzuki Honda Yamaha Rizoma | eBay
or
Dimotiv Handlebar 28mm 120mm Height 734mm Wide Rizoma | eBay

Thanks guys

I would go with the fat bars with adapters that give a 3/4" rise. I've been using these with Rizoma fat bars and they work great. Get some quality bolts though, the ones supplied are crap. Not a bad time to experiment with plasti-dip aerosols if you want to go black.

Interesting, never seen this Dimotiv brand before. Not bad on pricing either. Since you and I both know Chinese coatings sucks, wonder how the Taiwanese ones do. Their quality is usually a step above Chinese.

My classified(s):
Nothing at the moment

I'm really comfortable with the stock dimensions. So I want to keep everything like it is now... Only black. And for the price of Powdercoating, it just makes sense to buy Renthal (or comparable)

The green handlebars in that eBay ad look to be too dark. But their black looks darker/better than the Renthal black.
