Rox 2 Pivot Risers for BMW R1200GS / Adventure
Well made Product and very versatile Product.
My wife and I have had 4 or 5 Rox Risers on our BMW GSs over the years. And, I have had them on my dirt bikes. I love the product as you can stand on the pegs without bending your back too much. Plus you can pull the bars back for a more comfortable sitting position if you do more pavement riding. Great for shorter riders with shorter arms. The versatility is wonderful. Infinitely adjustable.
I gave the new BMW GS Rox risers a "fair" for "Bang for the Buck" as I think Rox is taking advantage of BMW GS water cooled riders because our handle bars were made larger for some stupid BMW engineering reason. How hard is it to made a 1/8 inch larger hole?
I should be mad at BMW, which I am, because absolutely nothing from the old GS fits on the new liquid cooled one. Some things I understand. Some, like the fatter bars, make no sense as nothing in the accessory industry fits anymore. Just causes more work for the accessory manufacturers.
For info: Most Rox risers, like this model, are about $75.00. At $135, I think Rox is taking advantage of new GS owners.
But, it is one great product. And one I recommend all the time. I will continue to recommend them (even as I complain about the price for '13 up BMW GS riders) Everyone who has a GS or any dual sport bike can benefit from them. And, dirt riders will love them.

quality product, little bit pricey
I installed it on a '15 R1200GSA. I had to reroute the cables. A little bit tricky to install, be careful when adjusting the raiser it can scracth the handlebar.

Requires Re-routing of Throttle cable
Causes throttle cable on my 2014 R1200GS Adv to be slightly compressed. Doesn't affect the overall handling of the bike though.

Just what I wanted!!
I'm not that tall, but that just meant that I had to lean over to reach the bars when standing on the bike. Now, I can stand in a very comfortable position and have that much more confidence. 2014 R1200GSA

Much more confortable ride
I´m 5.5 and the risers made a big difference on my riding while standing off road and cruising.
Very recommendable item.

Very good design which allows raising the bars as well as moving them closer to the body or away which ever is desired

Very well built. Nice finish.
This unit installed very quickly and easily. It is a must have accessory on all my bikes because of riding position. Lessens fatigue and improves riding handling. Good quality and nice finish. Should last a long time.

Rox 2" Pivot Riser
These riser were simple to install without having to change out any cables or brake lines. They give you the flexability of moving them forward or back and with the rise it is easier to stand up when traversing obsticales.
