Rox 2 Pivot Risers for 7/8 Handlebars
2" for KLR650
These are very high quality risers, easy install, great finish! Unfortunately, I have resell mine as it was too much rise for the throttle and clutch cables on my 08 KLR650. These got my hands/arms right up where they needed to be and gave me the height I was looking for, but the cables were way to tight when the bars were turned, even after rerouting. May try the 1".

Best upgrade yet
Didn't realize what those 2 inches ment in comfort, I can ride all day long in total comfort. Easy install, best ad on yet for my NC700x .

Able to ride standing up on 2009 KLR650
I hate how expensive these things are, but at least its the kind of thing you only have to buy once. After applying a little Zilla Cash I had it made the price swallowable. That being said, they fit great and do exactly what I needed. I always had a hard time reaching the handlebars on my 08+ Klr650 while standing and these fixed it. Some reviews online mentioned how you would need to reroute some cables or possibly even lengthen the wiring harness...I didn't have to do ANY of this. I have had the tank completely off prior to route my heated grips, so perhaps that helped free up some of the cable routing ahead of time, but again, all of my cables were plenty long.
I have an 09 KLR650 with the Happy Trails Rallye Windscreen relocation and Barkbuster VPS handguards, just for a reference that it all fits just fine together.

Changes the quality of your ride.
I bought these for my F700gs to get some weight off of my wrist and to make standing easier. I got much more than I expected as my riding position is perfect now and my hands don't go numb. I love these risers!!!
I bought a 20mm riser from another company but after using these I won't use anything else.

The Rox risers worked for getting the handlebars on my XR650L up for more comfortable riding. I'm sure there are other products that would do the same job for less money, but I am happy with the product and do recommend it.

Good prodcut, but has a hex on it.
I purchased the Rox 2 Inch Pivoting risers based solely on good reviews. Unfortunately, the raisers are still sitting in my garage due to two problems with mounting them on my 2004 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom. First, as other reviewers have stated, the design of the Rox Pivoting Risers prohibits tightening both sets (upper and lower) of OEM hex key bolts on the V-Strom using a standard hex key (Allen Wrench). Second, at least with the 2 inch raisers, there is not enough slack in my Galfer stainless steel brake lines to turn the handle bars from stop to stop with the risers installed. The brake lines need about another two inches. (The raisers may work with OEM brake lines or 1 inch risers.) The Rox risers do appear to be of high quality and innovative design, but if Rox Fx wants them to work on the V-Strom or any motorcycle using hex key bolts to secure the handle bar mounts, they should include a modified hex key that will fit between the OEM hex key bolts and the bottom of the upper part of the risers. Probably a more costly option would be to provide standard hex bolts in the kit to replace the OEM hex key bolts. The standard hex bolts would not have the wrench clearance problem the hex key bolts present.

Great option for adjustablility
These work great! Easy to install and adjust. I have an 07' wee strom and did not have to replace any lines. However, I did somewhat reroute the brake line as it was a bit too tight for my comfort. I was able to remove it from the line holder that mounts to the front frame and tie strapped it to another wire bundle. This provided plenty of slack.
About 50% of my riding is off pavement, so being able to stand taller and more comfortable was worth every penny.
Also, I have the Moose Racing seat (which raised me about 2.5 inches over stock seat height) and I'm very happy to have the bar risers!
