Yeah, I see the link has disappeared. I'll try to get it back up today.



I don't have a printer so I paid to have them printed.

Thumb Rox 40mm riser report

Well I've been using the prototype riser now for about 1500 mi. and couldn't be happier. The 40mm risers really alter one's sitting position on the bike, giving me a much more upright and comfy position. This is going to be a must have farkle for tall riders. I'm stoked about them.

The risers don't bind the cables but just barely on the left side. YMMV if BMW's cable lengths vary a bit.

I would post pics but these are the prototype that's polished aluminum and black bolts. The production version will be brushed chrome with matching bolts.

Chris, Pres. of Rox said the production version should be available July 1.

Rox speed fx us patent 6,920,806

Hello all,

I would like to add to this thread that the pivoting riser you see in this thread is not the Rox Speed FX Pivoting riser. The Riser you see here is a copy and infringes on the Rox Speed FX US Patent # 6,920,806. Please do not support people that knock off products invented and Patented by the originator. The Rox Speed FX 1.25" Pivoting Riser will be coming off the machine centers this week for proto-typing and fit-up. Please respect our hard work, effort and Patents and we will have something out to you shortly for the new Watercooler.

God Bless and good riding,

Chris Olin

Hello there, how high will the pivoting riser be and a target price, thanks.

I believe it's 2.25". No idea on the price as I'm just the beta tester

That may be so but fabricating a riser like that probably is a violation of Chris' patent.

Rox speed fx us patent 6,920,806

Hey All,

The new Rox Speed FX 1.25" diameter pivoting riser is 2.25" in height. The center to center measurement is 2.25" to provide adequate clearance over the stock OEM cap and for a more robust design.

The Rox Speed FX 1.5" Block Riser for the watercooler is back from anodizing and will be forsale starting tomorrow by phone but officially on sale by July 1.

Thanks for your patience,

Chris
Rox Speed FX Inc.

Are the LC's bars *really 1.25"? My 2010's are 1.125" and THEY look huge... Are there adjustable risers like the new 1.25's for my GS?

I just installed the touratech 15mm risers and the right brake line/electric cable start to get tight when the bars are turned fully to the left. I'm interested in higher risers, what's the trick to get the cables to fit?

Drop the fork tube and move the cables behind the fork tube.

I live in Alexandria if you want to come by some time. It doesn't take long at all.

Yup. Rox is working on the adjustable risers right now.

What he says.

Dropping the fork tube is super easy and simple. I just did my 2013 camhead and was really amazed how easy it was. There are several threads available to show you how. I think all you need is a 19mm open end wrench and a 14mm socket/ratchet.

I also had to reposition the throttle cable but you may not have that problem since you are doing the fly by wire thing.

I was going to do this this weekend. Any data on the torque values when putting the 14mm nut back on? And might you have a link to those threads? Thanks.
