I might be mistaken but I don't think anyone has received them yet. It's the final (maybe) item I'm waiting for.

Is it normal that the immobilizer light stop flashing/blinking after three days in parking? Bike also has anti-theft alarm system.

Me too. The last update from Altrider (at the start of this month) was that they expected to start shipping them around the 21st of May. I guess we'll know by the end of the week.

Rayzor61 asked me to post some pics of my bar setup. I know its already been covered in this Thread, but I couldn't remember what page. Sheeez....somebody needs to make an Index!

Anyway, here you go Rayzor:







ProTaper Evo bars - Woods High bend
MotoSportz tall risers
Touratech Handguards
Kaoko Cruise Lock (on throttle bar end....muy bueno!)

Has anybody used Rox Risers on the TR, or any other application for that matter? Got any feedback on them?

Yes RD I have them on my Terra and so far the best $70 bucks I've spent on her. Your'e going to have to reroute the throttle cable but other than that they fit and work perfectly. I'm 6'1" and now can stand without bending down to reach the bars. I think mine have a 2" rise.

Thanks

Yes I use the 2" version in black...I did have to turn the throttle tube upside down to give the cables enough room to function. Easy enough..

There is an alternative to ROX

I have the ROX on my versys and they are great for that application as there are very few options for risers that will fit.

I have had ROX on several other bikes as well, however I am not a fan of them on more dirt biased bikes as they twist too easily.



I have begun using Powermadd Poweriser 475's where I can (you have to have room between the stock bar mounts).
Being a one piece design they are super solid and generally a few bucks cheaper than ROX too.

I have the 2" Rox Risers on my Terra. Have only taken a very short test ride but it felt much better when up on the pegs. I did read that others had to reroute the throttle cable. My throttle cable was fine but the brake line was stretched tight. There's a screw in bracket on the back of the headlight for the brake cable. I turned that bracket upside down (effectively moving the cable two inches higher). Had to snip the cable ties on the bars and the clutch cable is now about as tight as it can go on full lock, but doesn't feel like it's trying to overstretch and doesn't start tugging on the clutch when at full lock.

Motosportz skid plate for cheap on eBay. Just stumbled across it and thought someone here might be interested. No affiliation.
