    Rox risers installed

    So I ordered a set of Rox risers from Revzilla (2" 7/8). They came last Friday. Seem pretty easy to do. It took may 45 minutes to do. Including the clean up. Here is the pics. Every cable on the throttle side needed a little more slack. Other then that no problems. Now that they were in I took a hour drive on Saturday and did enjoy the ride much better without reaching. Remember it wasn't done unless you post the pictures, so here you go.

    Check your alignment. I can't see any visible crosshatching on my bars with the Rox risers installed. Other than that, it looks good, I like my Rox risers quite a lot.

    I'm considering the Rox 2 inch anti-vibration risers. Will I have enough slack in my DCT's cables?

    You might want to rotate them back towards you a bit.. makes it much easier to reach.. unless you have long arms, in which case you may want to leave them where they are. I had to take the upper rubber grommet loose on my brake line to give it enough slack to turn full lock right and left when I installed mine. I do not have the DCT though so it may be different for you.

    Thanks for your service in the PGR! I finished the job in the dark that night the next day I saw the cross marks. So tonight when I get home I'll adjust the Rox to try to fix this and tilt them back a bit. No DCT on my bike.

    FlaNC700X,

    Thanks for this. I have a set that's been sitting in my garage for a while that I want to install. This is helpful. One question, did you have to remove any plastic to get access to lengthen the cables?
