most any riser for the yamaha flat post steering stems and 7/8" will work.

heres some things to consider with the phazer:

cable length. how high can you go? you are limited as you wont find any cable extensions for your throttle or brake. plan accordingly.

wiring, speedo, and tach cables. probably enough slack in the speedo and tach, you may be splicing wires.

due to the design of the phazer, when you raise the bars, your also raising the pharing with the headlight. not a big deal here, but you increase the air flow to the rider. you may need to make something to block the increased air flow.

depending how much increase your looking for, the rox pivoting riser in about a 2" would be one i would consider. even thats iffy with your existing cables. some creative re-routing may make it happen.

I realize your asking about a phazer but you may like to know, I just put a new pair of bars on my 91 polaris indy trail, new honda xr motorcycle bars. The bars have a mild sweep and about 3 inch rise. I Used original polaris bar clamp and mounted right up. . I cut the opening on my hood (near steering post) about 2 inches larger to accommodate brake/throttle cables etc.
Much more comfortable and rider friendly feeling. . Can actually stand up without hunching over! Awesome &
The best part is the bars only cost $30. . Much cheaper than the bar riser kits that are out there.. And with the kits you end up buying new bars also, cause the stock bars are terribly uncomfortable!
To my wallet it made *cents*
