I solved to problem by simply using ProTaper Raptor bend bars. They will have give you the same rise with a much better (OEM) connection to the triples. I now have the Raptor bend bars on both my dirtbike and my 990 Adv and I just love them.

I did not need new cables.

Oh, and the new Protaper bars are cheaper than the Rox Risers.

Here's a picture of my setup.

Any idea how much height you gained with them?

With this type of bend, I wonder which hand guard would fit on the raptor bars ?

Raptor bar info :

Heigth 143 mm
Rise 115 mm
Sweep 87 mm

I'm going to try the Rox 1.75 with a Renthal Fatbar 822 KTM Low and see what happens. I'll post some pics and initial thoughts next week.

Update

Installed new riser, new Renthal bars, CJ plate and new grips…Cycra hand guards are in the mail. The bars have much less sweep which feels amazing when off-road/standing and keeps the controls far enough forward that I didn't have to flip the throttle. Also the clamp area is much wider thus more compatible with the Rox risers than the stock Renthals.
