Rox 2" Bar Risers on a Tiger 800 XC?

I am getting ready to buy a new Tiger 800XC and I want bar risers. I have been looking at the 2" Rox's that pivot.
Have any of you installed them on a Tiger 800 yet?

If so, did you have to replace any cables or hoses, or maybe reroute them?
And... Do you like them?

I have them on my XC and ended up with them through trial and error.

I first bought the 10mm spacer risers which helped but the bars were too far away. I then added the 2" Rox Pivot Risers to the existing risers. THIS made the cables too tight and was a little more than I needed. I removed the 10mm riser and the 2" Rox risers were perfect. The cables are fine as is.

Thanks Burmbuster!
That was exactly what I was hoping to hear.

Yes. No. I have the anti vibe rox risers. I wouldn't ride without them. They work nicely.

Do the anti vibe ones really make a difference? Dont think I feel any vibes through the bars with OEM setup still

By God it must be! I got problem with my Rox risers - before I installed them I never noticed vibes...now my hand goes numb in no time (right side) when I ride at standard Belgian speed - 120 kmph. Above 130 or below 115 no problem at all.
Damn it. I wonder what I can do now to fix it. I like ergos with Rox 2", really do not want to take them off.
May be put some DYI weight on bar to jump out of that resonance zone...
I wish I had bought antivibe ones...

I put bar ends on from a DRZ I used to have. My wrist are messed up from working in construction for the last 25 years. I don't have a problem until about 1hr of constant riding. After I installed the bar ends, I never had a problem again.

I've been contemplating getting the bar ends for the Barkbusters. The vibes aren't terrible on the Tiger but they could be just a bit better for long hauls. Maybe I will just let Santa know.

Ok, so the Rod website has several, but which one fits the XC? Any help would be appreciated.

I just bought and installed 2' Rox risers and the vibration is now at a minimum.
