Rox 2 Pivot Risers for 7/8 Handlebars
Great product, as expected
Rox Risers are a simple product, but most welcome if you want or need a little bit different posture on your bike. I was a bit concerned when I got them that it would be difficult to maintain proper handlebar alignment with these. While it's certainly possible to misalign them, I found that they wanted to self-align so long as I tightened the bolts gradually, alternating from one to the other.
I now have a more comfortable posture on my bike, particularly since I've raised the seat and pushed the seating position back some.

Every little bit helps
I'm 6'6" and the stock handlebars on my 2006 V-Strom weren't high enough to be comfortable. I bought the Rox risers because they were adjustable and offered the most lift. They also did not require changing any wiring. The two tricks in the installation is to tighten them evenly and to find an adjustment that still allows access to tighten the lower bolts. Once installed I felt an immediate improvement in my comfort on the bike.

Great product. I did not rate "ease of install" because I had some one else do that for me. As well, I haven't rated "durability" since they are only 90 days old, but so far, so good!

Save my vstrom from being sold
I have a 2006 vstrom 650 and my first trip over a hundred miles felt like I had a knife in between my shoulder blades and my spine. I googled my issue and everybody seems to recommend these. I just installed them today...Problem Solved! No more upper back pain because I am sitting upright more. I am 5'11" 190 lbs if this helps anything. As for the install, it is pretty easy you will need to move some cables around. The front brake line mount by the forks needed to be moved as well as the left hand side electrical will need to be not connected to the handlebar. I ground off a 6 mm allen wrench to tighten up the bar clamps to new risors. It is a very tight fit.but works well. If your upper or lower back is sore this will fix it.

Best comfort bang for you buck
An easy install that takes about 20 minutes and helps with posture and overall comfort. My commute from LA to Irvine is that much more fun and easy going. Revzilla delivered just like they always do too...fast and accurately. Consistently happy customer here.

Best ergonomic mod for a tall rider
Purchased for my 2014 KLR650. I am 6.5ft and ride a lot of fire roads and jeep trails. Standing on the pegs has become effortless and I find myself standing up even on pavement, just because I can.
Installation required removing the tank to get every bit of cable slack. At 2" the risers will take up some cable when going lock to lock on the handlebars. I also moved my clutch cable from between the water pump hoses and routed it above.

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.
