Title: 3.5" Rox Risers - will they fit?
Post by: Kris on December 02, 2018, 04:35:51 PM
I have already 2" Risers by still find leaning too much on the handlebars which causes strain in my wrists.  I was wondering if 3.5" risers will fit with the cables and all??  I was considering this or a higher handlebars.

i just found 1" extension to rox risers.  that's cool, and cheap.

ive got SW Motech 60mm risers and some extra 15mm risers, cables might go another 10mm higher, possibly more with some re routing...

oh, so that's good news!  with the 1" additional rise, on top of the 2" rox risers, I will have 76mm rise in total, so it is close to your set up. I have no idea why Tiger roadie has the bars so low ?? To torture us?  For purely sport riding it is fine, but it is supposed to be a touring/adventure bike...or so it seems....

My Versys 1000 has also low bars, but it being more of a sport/touring bike, it is more acceptable, as its ergos are good for cornering and stuff.  I still fitted 30mm risers for comfort.

yeah, I found the std low bars on the Tiger uncomfortable, I would like a bit more rearward sweep too. I may look for some bars that are higher and more slightly swept back

these seem bigger than in the Tiger, but I am not sure.

the only problem with them is that they lack the threaded hole for the screw at the end to fit the aftermarket handlebars.

with Rox Risers you can move the bar back quite a bit.

i have a pair of these off a previous bike, being alloy you can tap a thread in the ends if needed...think i'll give them a try, they are about 50mm taller than std Tiger bars, so could remove some of the risers..

I installed HeliBars on my 800. 1.25" up and closer. Easy bolt on and secure

I'm also thinking I'd like a little extra height on my Rox risers, but looking at cables, it looks like a really tight fit for that extra 1". I see these 15mm pieces on ebay to fit between the bars/top clamp but wondering how wide they are. I have a note in to the mfr for info..

just in the middle of fitting 2" Rox onto the XCA. All the cables are too short. Going to have to lift the tank and see if i can gain a bit more slack.

Weird, as all you guys seem to be fine....Grrrrr

To update, i found the slack i needed. Removing the Tank was a PITA though.
