2 inch Risers ?????
« on: Jan 04, 2013, 05:39:13 PM »
I'm looking at installing a set of "Rox Speed FX Elite Series Pivot Handlebar 2" Risers" - $66.oo -

I would like to know if anyone here has done something similar in the 2" range - as in - can you do it without having to change clutch, brake lines and throttle cables?

Check with Rable...he did the two inch and as I recall, said he had to take off the ignition cover and do a little re-routing of the cables, but they fit without adding extensions.

You are welcome.  Good luck with them, look like they are just what is needed to bring the bars back for comfort.

Looking over the risers and noted the ones you listed are 7/8 and i think our bars are 1 inch, or maybe not.

I pulled these specs off of the internet:  http://www.sideroadcycles.com/AmericanMotorcycles/Handlebars/Stock_Bars.html
If you go to the website they explain how they calculate the measurments.

Yamaha Description:
XV19 Raider, S (Risers 5-1/2"H - 4"PB) 2008 - 2011

Web description:
Bar Diameter 1"
Height 3"
Width 32"
Pullback 7"
Center 7-1/2"
Clamp Area 6" one piece


I definitely would like to get a slight rise and a bit of pulback for a little better comfort and I think the Rox Risers will do the trick if the current cables can handle it.

Had a nice chat on the phone with Rable and he explained what he did was buy the Rox chrome 2" risers - for the 1" handle bars and the results were about 1-1/2 up and 1-1/2 back.  He had to monkey stretch the wires and cables, but he has full unrestricted turn on the handle bars - and more comfort riding.

Thanks all.

When my risers get here I'll take some pics of installation and finished product.  In the mean time you could check Rabel's pics on his profile.

Installed the Rox Risers today.  Feels pretty good.  See what its like after a few miles.

Installation is straight forward - but - you need to remove the key cover and the 2 panels on the inside of the stock risers so that you can get some slack out of the wiring to do a safe install.

How exactly do these work.  It looks like the lower portion isn't knurled or grooved so how do they stay in place?
