Bar risers for 2014 GSAW

I stopped by my dealer today and saw my GSA on the showroom floor. I got on and immediately knew I will need some bar risers for comfortable riding on the pegs. I saw the risers on Touratech but these only raise the bars 0.6". I am looking for at least 1" rise or as high as I an go without needing to re-route any wires or lines.

Any recommendations?

ROX Risers

I just put ROX Risers on my 2014 GSA WC. I went with the 1 1/2 inch riser just for the same reason, no need to move any lines. I gott'm from Adventure Designs. Check out their website.

ADVMotorrad sells the 40mm rox risers.
SW-Motech also sells 40mm risers.
Both claim no line extensions needed. I will be able to tell you whether that's true in about 2 weeks.

I installed 40mm Black Dog Cycle Works bar risers on my GSW. The fit great, look even better, no need to adjust cables. My shoulders and back no longer hurt after a long ride.

I second the black dog. They perfectly match the finish of the bike. Raise 40mm and require no cable adjustments.

Thanks for the recommendation. I take away that I can manage 40mm without extending or re-routing any cables. I'll look at SWMotech, Blackdog and Rox Risers

I put Rox risers on my GSAW and only had to move the lines to the outside of the fork. Works like a charm.

Did you actually try the TT risers with the bar angle changed as well?
It might do the job ... as I, too, thought that I needed more raise.

I did not. The first thing I did was rotate the bars and that made it a bit better (even for riding on the seat) but I am going to need to raise them further. I am 6' 2" and have to lean forward too much when riding on the pegs.

Here's what I've found with help from folks:

Touratech 15mm $73.50


SW-Motech 40mm $124.99 (specified for 2013 R1200GS, not sure if they will work on the 2014 R1200GSA)


Rox Risers 50mm $135 (pivoting)


Black Dog 40mm $145

TT 40mm risers would be the perfect ones... I can't find them on line to order

I chose the Rox risers because I didn't want the bars to come loser to me as I elevated them 2". With Rox you have axis that you can use to custom position your bars.

I would have but they always show as backordered with 8 weeks delivery time so I gave up on them.
