Rox 2 Pivot Risers for BMW R1200GS / Adventure
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.

Risers great for new gs 1200 adv 2014 but some minor cable adjustment needed as the brake and clutch lines become too tight on full lock. Great product

work, but not nearly as adjustable as I had hoped
Quality pieces but if you want to adjust them so that they're straight up, good luck getting to the bolts to fasten them down. I like my bars back a bit so they worked for me... For now at least

Damaged handlebars during installation
I recently ordered a set of these and had to comment on my experience. As usual Revzilla's customer service and shipping was amazing.
The reason that I purchased these risers was two fold: 1] bring the handle bars back a bit so that I don't have to reach so far forward to reach the handlebars and 2] better reach when in a standing position.
Out of the box, the product quality is outstanding. They are exactly as you would expect.
Installation of these, however, is not nearly as easy as expected. These risers are made from aluminum so when you start tightening screws they start to bind on the pivot points very quickly. This makes installation very difficult because you can't fully torque your rear bolts because they are completely obscured by the top of the risers when they are pivoted towards the rear: which is required to be able to access the front bolts. So you have to kinda of do the best you can with the rear bolts, only tightening them enough so that you can still pivot the assembly backwards, and then torque down only the front bolts. These same risers for other bikes have a hole cut through the bottom of the riser so that you can access the rear bolts. This one does not have that hole.
As soon as I applied any kind of tension at all everything bound and was very difficult to pivot and adjust. Also because these DO bind so easily and due to the sharp edges around where it grips the handle bars, I ended up scratching the heck out of my handle bars during the adjustment phase.
Also 2" is too high for me. I'm 6'. In order to work with the stock cables I had to leave them rotated slightly forward and in a higher position. This amazing for a standing riding position, but unfortunately its too high when seated. Now my forearms get numb due to the angle of my arms while riding.
Now that everything is installed, they work well in one position, appear to be tight enough, and look great. But they were very difficult to install, and did damage to my handle bars in the process.
