Rox 2 Pivot Risers for 7/8 Handlebars
Fits the DRZ400S with a slight mod for the ignition key
I bought the 2" risers to enable standing up on my pegs during the rough stuff. Given my height of 6'2" on the stock DRZ400S, I found myself too hunched over when trying to stand on the pegs. These risers make a noticeable difference.
To install them, I chose to leave the ignition key down at the original base, as it keeps it less intrusive and flush with the instrument panel. But to make it fit, I had to cut a notch out of the stock mounting plate for the ignition key. Overall, it was fairly easy, and with the 2" risers everything still fits, although with a bit more of a stretch for the various cables. Because of the ignition key plate clearance, the left riser is not able to slide all the way under the original handlebar clamp, short by about 1/8" (see the attached photos). But this still should be sufficiently secure.
Separately, I don't think I would try to go with risers any taller though, as this may be too much for the brake, clutch, and electrical cable lengths.
After a couple of rides off road, I have been happy with the new setup.

Worked perfectly and is made very well
The product seems to be made well and was easy to install. The 2 inches made a huge difference in ride comfort. I recommend this product to any one who is long wasted like me :-)

Pricey, MUCH better ergonomics.
Pricey, but great quality. Allows me to stand up with my 1983 BMW R80ST. Also, have a set on my BMW 09 R1200 GS Adventure. Brings bars closer and higher. For me MUCH better ergonomics.

Great risers at acceptable price
These are well designed and well made. They offer a range of both elevation and forward/rearward handlebar position adjustment. When you're satisfied with the handlebar position they tighten securely to prevent slippage during hard braking or when standing while bouncing over obstacles off road. Took some re-routing of cables and such but it all worked out. Very satisfied with fit, function and appearance.

With an almost infinitely adjustable range around a 2" radius, these are the risers with the most adjustable options on the market. Initially, I looked at fixes risers, but selected these based on their two-axis (height and length) adjustment. Couldn't be happier and they greatly reduced my arm, neck, and shoulder fatigue on long trips. An r1100gs does not need additional cable length to fit.
