    2018 xrt - rox risers and wiring

    Hi all

    I had my roadie booked in to fit rox risers as I need the bars to come back a bit, but Triumph just called and said the loom and other cables are too short and so can't fit them. I had read elsewhere on here this was always a possibility - just wondered if anyone had any suggestions as to what else I might try? short of asking Triumph to extend the cables (which I imagine isn't cheap)

    Cheers!

    I don't think there is a major handlebar difference between 'Gen 2' and 'Gen 3' bikes other than TFT screen. I suspect the dealer simply isn't prepared to do cable/wiring alterations from standard routing, when in reality little is needed. I have both XC risers and Rox risers fitted with no cable/wiring extensions needed just the wiring ties relocated.

    Reply #2 describes what was needed and the link in the reply shows pictures.

    Thanks StevieP, you're likely right - its probably a liability thing.

    I've got a few days off, if its dry I'll have a look myself which I was hoping to avoid, as a noob  :008:

    Hi Jemil
    Fitting Rox risers is pretty straightforward, and shouldn’t (hopefully) require any adjustment to cables. Check out MuddySumps videos; he’s done one specifically on fitting these risers.
    Cheers

    AFAIK the Roadie (XR) versions and the Off Road (XC) versions use the same wiring loom and the XC bikes come standard with a riser fitted so what the dealer is saying simply does not make sense. Couple that with the fact that for the last 12 years people have been adding Rox or other risers to Tigers generally without any issue and it makes the dealer looks even more silly.

    As Stevie, Geoff and K1W1 stated, Adding Rox risers is one of the easier mods you can do to your bike, as many have done it. Either the dealer's mechanic is incompetent or the dealership wants to make extra income. Those two conditions are the reasons why after I pick up my new bike the dealer doesn't get to see or touch the bike, unless there is a warranty or recall issue.
    You can do this yourself. You'll need a ratchet and a set of hex bits.

    Just a thought - do you know which size Rox Risers you have - they do about 5 different variations in size.

    If you get stuck or nervous, depending where in Surrey you are, if you fancy a ride out to Basingstoke then PM me and I will gladly help you fit them over a cuppa. I have all the tools necessary and already have risers on my XRX  :001:

    Thankyou for your very kind offer! I'm not so far from you (New Haw) - I will watch the vids and give it a go. They're the 2" pivot risers - I looked around for others that were shorter (I really only need them to come back toward me about an inch), but went with these as they seem popular amongst the community.

    Will report back!

    I recently fitted 2" Rox risers to my '16 xrx. On full left lock/locked position, the harness from right bar end is a tad tight, made worse by clutch cable pulling on it. I re-routed the clutch cable from in front to behind the harness, which eased it, the harness is routed between the two tubes that hold the panel/lights, it pulls against the top tube, not too tight now.

    Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

    Did my 2019XRx with 2" rox risers and found that removing the routing bracket and banding the control cables together gave me full movement with no problems.
    Ride Safe.
