Rox risers on GS

I see these are popular on the GS as local dealer also confirms. Wondering what other's experiences are with them regarding stability. I'd hate to be off-roading and have them rotate at any point. Feedback appreciated.

Mine never have except for a parking lot tip over a couple years ago- and that was barely noticeable. I've been down in the dirt over a dozen times since I put them on and never once have they moved.

Another happy Rox Riser installer. I did end up re-routing some of my lines and this post was really helpful. Thanks for the pictorial assist!

Rox Riser Install

Just installed my Rox Risers that came from Santa!

I have a 2009 12GS and didn't re-route any wires or cables. Lock to lock and no problem with idle. I did cut 1 cable tie that held the clutch line near the steering head but I could have probably gotten away with not doing this. It does seem like the front brake line is a little tight when the handlebars are turned all the way to the left but I think it will be fine. Also, I keep the original handlebar clamp bolts and was able to get a torque wrench on the large front bolts and used a 8mm wrench on the back and just made them tight (well, as tight as I could with a short little 8mm wrench!)

Now I just need a little warm weather to try them out!

I'm a bit surprised it's as complicated as it is. I've installed them on a couple of bikes and it's a trivial matter, never involving moving around other parts.

Is this relative complexity still the case on the later models?

LTS Thanks for the detailed info. I put my Rox Risers on my 07 GSA today. The only thing I have to add is this:

Mark the handle bars where they attach to the original clamps BEFORE you take the handle bars off! I didn't and spent an extra 30 mins trying to measure, eyeball, SWAG them back to center when I put them in the ROX Risers.

My only concern is the front brake line still seems tight. I dropped the fork tube as you suggested ("Easy-Peasy for sure) for the left side and moved the front brake line behind it. It seems the best compromise because it was really tight on the front side. Long term solution will be to get a new brake line that is a little longer and put it on but that is a project for another day. i'm putting all the panels on and going riding.

I have RawHyde school in 2 weeks and am getting Road Runner ready.

Question: I'm 6'6" and super long arms, did anybody move the riser a bit forward from the top position?
All pcitures I see here the risers seem to be moving the handlebar closer the body

I'm 6'4" I have mine pushed forward about an inch, the rox risers are actually straight up and down. My only issue is that I can't have the windshield in the furthest back position the handle bars touch but just barely.

Did you have to re-route throttle or brake lines?

I installed mine so the riser came out at about 45 degress (6'2"). I wanted reasonable level arms when sitting and better access when standing. Just had to move throttle cable under the bar which was pretty easy.

I have a pair ordered for my 2010 GSA. What is the deal with having to drop the forks and all? I thought it would be a easy install. I can't imagine the cables being too short. I'm not tall (5'11") but want the bars up for standing.

Someone please explain the extra steps to me.

thanks all, i appreciate the info on these risers, i'm 6'1, and have to really hunch over when standing... so will be getting a set before my end-of-June trip. I must say that Jim's videos (http://jimvonbaden.com/) explain this install (and almost anything else you'd want/need to do to/kno about your GS) completely. After watching his DVD's, it really helps de-mystify this install. He shows how to drop the forks, re-route the lines, and re assemble. what a great, detailed resource his DVD's are. Not a better deal out there. Get them all, you won't regret it.

okay, just finished ROX install on 2012 GSA. what worked for me.. had to drop clutch side forks and put cables under (towards rear of bike), did not have to drop front brake side..

did have to pay close attention to throttle cable... dealt with it with cable (zip) ties..



no binding at this time...



hope this helps others.. again this thread, and Jim's DVD were very helpful to me..

best

The pictures are great, thanks!

I still don't understand why the fork tube needs to be dropped. What is that doing?
