Rox 2 Pivot Risers for BMW R1200GS / Adventure
Who doesn't want an extra 2 inches??
I'm 6'7" so I need all the bar height I can get if I want to ride standing up.
I purchased the 2 inch Rox risers for my 2015 BMW R1200GS Adventure and couldn't be happier.
It took about an hour to install taking my time to get the front bolts set before tightening the rears (I have the bars forward of the original position).
They raise the bars up to a [perfect rising height for me, they are colour matched to BMW silver so while they are aftermarket they don't look out of place.
Highly recommended, just wish they made a 3 inch version.

Great Adjustability, but Semi-Tricky Install
I just installed these risers on my 2015 GSA, and they work great! There are couple things that should be known on the install though. The bolts on the top clamping support of the fork cross brace are obstructed by the risers in certain positions, which make tightening them difficult. I had to tighten the front side bolt (finger tight), so that the top pivots could still be rotated, and then torque down the opposing side for the final tightening.
Be CAUTIOUS when you disconnect the stanchions for cable reroute ('13-15 GS / GSA); There is a 22mm nut (fixed) to the top of the stanchion tube under the cross brace that must be held to loosen the top nut. This is aluminum, and if you don't have the proper tool, you will damage or possibly strip this nut. I used a crescent wrench with a thin piece of leather to protect the nut, but ideally you should use a 22mm "service wrench" for this task.

Looks Good Works Well...
The look good and they are functional. Put them on my bike ( R 1200 GS, 2015) and I have found that I'm more comfortable on the bike and now have an infinite amount of adjustment.
I believe that you should reroute your cables on the outside of the triple clamp/fork. I found that the brake and clutch lines were under stress when the bar were turned in hard.
Its an easy job, less than five minutes a side. See the ROX website for the how too photos.

Best Money Spent
After spending serious money on a bike of this caliber, how could you not want to perfect your riding position. These risers not only allow a great deal of flexibility and experimentation, they look good doing it. My new GS feels like the old FJR.

easy install. have to play with angle a bit to be able to tighten screws.
Still new so not sure of "Durability" but like the new angle much easier to ride while standing ! Have to play with the angles a bit while tightening the screws as don't always have straight shot with wrench, but still easily accomplished.

Well manufactured risers let me adjust the bars anywhere - back, tilt, etc.. Easy to change too.

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.
