Rox Risers

Just installed the 2" Rox pivoting risers on my ABS F8gs. Went on easily enough, I did unbolt the clip holding the clutch cable and took it out. I wanted the bars as far back as I could get them, just so they barely cleared the ignition plastics. The cables all work, but for as low as I have them, the brake line gets snug at full lock. I'm more worried about wear on it and for that reason may order a longer line. Very happy with the risers and sure make it more comfortable for me.

Quote:
I have the stock line and a source for quality custom hydraulic lines right here in the big city. If it is a deal breaker for anyone because of the brake line , and you don't have a source for a custom then let me know. Maybe I can help.

I'll be sorry I offered that...
So. . . I'll PM you to get some more info.

Hey guys, I'm looking at getting the 2" ROX risers. I don't need the bars to come back at all, just up. If I avoid going back and just head up, do I avoid having to reroute the cables??

I don't think you'll have to reroute them, but thats my guess. Because I have them back as far as I can, the lower end of the cable, where it is a 90 degree, is pretty snug. Pulling on that 90 is my concern of it wearing. Having the bars up not back wouldn't pull that 90 so tight. Cluth cable shoudn't be an issue. I know there are two different brake cables on ABS and non ABS - mine is ABS.

F800GS Rox Riser Update

I installed Rox Risers on my F800GS several weeks ago and somewhere, either here, the F800 Rider forum or both, I posted that they fit fine with no cable problems.

Moving the bike around earlier this week I discovered that, at full right lock, the clutch slipped almost to the point of completely disengaging.

I rerouted the Clutch Cable to the outside of the fork tubes and this completely solved the problem. At full right or left lock I have a very slight play in the clutch lever before it begins to disengage the clutch.

Just wanted to get this out here in case anyone actually paid any attention to my previous post.

Anyone Installed/Used ROX for F800GS?

Anyone using the kit "specifically developed" for F800GS? Please share your thoughts on install and application?

Thanks,
Chris

needing help

Hey all - I'm very curious if this install would work for the F650GS Twin.

I'm very frustrated with the fit of this bike for rides longer than 30 minutes. I really feel I need the bars back towards me. I can't imagine the reach works out for many women that are shorter than 5'6".

Thanks for your input!

I put them on my Uly and they work out great

Lets you roll the bars back will still getting the benefit of the rise.


The biggest thing you have to make sure of is cable/brake line length. But i wouldn't see why BMW didn't build in some extra length on an enduro.

The website doesn't have a specific model for your bike but i would just look to see what size your handlebars were and order the corresponding risers.

+1 on BushWhacker's experience with clutch disengaging at full right with F8GS Rox Riser.

Will be attempting clutch cable reroute this week.

F650gs Twin Rox Risers

I completed installation of the Rox Risers (2" rise for 7/8"bars). Has improved seating position & comfort greatly. Needed a longer brake line, and at recommendation of dealer, I used Goodridge brake fittings.
14" Clear coated Brake Hose #036112
Shadow 90 degree 10mm Banjo fitting #036459
Shadow Straight 10mm Banjo fitting #036455

I did have to use 2 compression washers on each side of the banjo fitting at the handlebars. Brake bleeding was uneventful.

I haven't had any problems with bars hitting the key area.

2004 DL650 Wee installed 7/8" to 1 1/8", 2" Rox Risers with no cable length issues. I have the F650GS bars on this bike, which is why it is 1 1/8. Only problem I had was removing the old 7/8 to 1 1/8 adapter. The screws it came with were not rust proof (wtf?) and I had to hammer in a torx bit and use an hand impact driver to extract them.

I have mine pivoted towards the rider side. I'm 5'11 and I was just on the edge of leaning over which was KILLING my back. I was out riding last weekend for about a half day with no problems at all, so the risers did the trick.

Also note that I have them installed backwards so that they would line up with the rivets in the bars better.

Torque

I also installed the rox risers for the F800GS. Low Pro 1 3/4"rise x 1 1/8" Stem Clamp x 1 1/8" Handlebar, Product number 3R-P2PPL. I have the risers forward about 15 degrees from staight up. The only problem I had is there is no possible method to properly torque the bottom set of bolts.

with all the bolts slightly taut, rotate the bars back (or forward if you want the bars mounted toward the back) so you have room and tighten bottom bolts then rotate them forward where you want them then tighten the top bolts. least that's how I did it.
