Rox bar risers for the 2013 R1200 GS LC

Anybody have installed the Rox bar risers (the pivoting model) on their 2013 R1200 GS LC: did you have problems with the lines (clutch, brakes...) Did you have to re-route them, or even change them altogether?

Thank you.

The 2013 R1200GS LC has a 1 1/4" diameter handlebar. Rox Doesn't have a riser for that diameter bar yet. It is in the works though. Keep an eye on the site for them.

And the Touratech site in Germany has 40mm risers listed but they're not yet on the USA site. Their risers though don't look like you can adjust the angle like the Rox risers.

I may be a beta tester for Rox when they develop their prototype

I attempted to install my Rox risers from my previous GS on the new one not knowing anout the change in diameter. Obviously they didntbwork. Good news is there appears to be plenty of excess wiring to allow risers without any modification.

That's interesting. Is that a common bar size?

Looks like it's a common size on cruisers.

Don't wait for risers, just install these bad boys:

Thumb Risers available 7/1

Hi all,
I just heard from Chris Olin, Pres. of Rox risers with this update:

"The block risers are coming off the machine center this week and will go to anodizing. We are looking at July1 to the public."

These risers will be 40mm block risers (i.e., not adjustable in the angle). I've been using the prototype for about 1500 mi. now and they've made a huge difference in my comfort level as I sit more upright with less pressure on my hands.

3D Printed Riser

Here is a link to a picture of a riser I designed and 3D printed for my GS LC. The total cost for the pair was about $50.

Question

Um, I don't see a link. And how much did your 3-D printer cost?

If you get a link to the product or write up a review, it would be really nice if you could find the time to post it in the farkles thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=891023
