Rox 2 Pivot Risers for 7/8 Handlebars
Perfect for my ride.
To install on my R1150GS I didn't have to replace any wires/cables, I did have to cut and replace a couple zip ties. No big deal. You do have to plan the positioning around the lower bolts as the top of the unit can and will obscure them. Tighten either the top or bottom bolts on the stock clamp depending on what position the risers are in, then rotate into place and tighten the remaining bolts. You will not be able to tighten all 4 of the stock bolts at the same time because the risers will be in the way of one set. This will be apparent when you get them on and see the position. Plan accordingly.
I like the ability to not only add height to my bars but also reach. Just that small adjustment makes a huge difference in positioning and how my body feels after a long ride.
I'd recommend to all unless you're not mechanically inclined, in which case you're going to have some issues installing them. If you're handy, not a problem. They're just not "plug & play. Well worth the time and money. Great product.

Went on pretty easy, keeping the bars square was the toughest part, just marked seam of original clamps before removing and used that as a reference point. Have tweaked them a few times to fine tune and they tighen up just as well as the 1st time. Quality made.

Great once it's on. Some installation challenges.
I installed these on my 2003 BMW F650 GS. I did need to purchase a longer front brake cable. The installation process is pretty straight forward once you have your cables and electric routing worked out. The only annoyance with the Rox Risers is the position of the bolts. At least with my handlebars, once they're in place where you want them, it's nearly impossible to access the bolts to tighten them down. I ended up sawing off the short end of a hex wrench to get it to fit into the tight space. I'm keeping that tool in my kit, as I won't be able to make adjustments to the position without it.
As for functionality, they're great! The pivoting plus the rise gives you a wide range to find your perfect placement, and makes stand-up time much more comfortable - not to mention better bike control.

Remote feel after installing
I installed these on an F650GS inline twin. Upon installing them I felt a disconnect on the bike. I felt the bars were misaligned or something, yet when I removed these the bars felt fine, not remote or twisted, just still too far away from me. (Short arms :-) )
I tried multiple times to re-install them and align them but it always felt "off" to me. I purchased a product later for another bike called PowerMadd 45430 PowerRiser 475 - 2" Tall X 4.75" Wide, 7/8" bars to 7/8" bars. They are a solid riser and not separate like the Rox. Sooo much better. I don't think Revzilla has them but if they did, I'd have bought them from Revzilla. Hopefully they'll read this and perhaps they will.

Quick way to add comfort to your stance.
Worth the money! It is worth noting that I had to cut a few of the factory zip-ties in order to make the handlebars reach their new position.
Would have given it 5 stars except for how the bars have to be tightened. Its a little strange and left me wondering if the bars would be tight enough. Hope Rox comes up with a design fix for this to give it's customers a warm fuzzy. To be fair they haven't moved after a few weeks of city driving.
Worth the purchase!

Does exactly has advertised, No surprises.
Easy to install, excellent finish.
Only issue is the length of your stock cables, may or not be a problem.

What my poor back needed!
I held off on picking these up for quite some time, as I was worried installation would be a pita. Finally bit the bullet and got a set and I couldn't be more pleased! They went on fairly easy and getting them set just right took some measuring. Now I can ride standing up for extended periods of time without my back hurting, would buy again.
