Default Rox Riser Help

I tried to install a set of 2" ROX Risers today and am missing it somewhere. How do you torque the 2 rear original bolts after installing the risers and tilting them back?

With bars in straight up position, torque the bolts. Now loosen the front two three turns. Then loosen the rear ones just enough to pull the bars back. Then retighten the front ones.

I picked up a spare allen wrench and cut it down with a dremel to fit the tight side.
Then added it too my tool kit under the seat so its always with me.

Except for throwing it in the tool kit with the bike, this is what I did also.

Got it all installed. Found a guy locally that made me a 2" longer brake line out of stuff equivalent to St St for $20 less than the one mentioned on this site. I just have to refill, bleed and take for a test ride. Thanks again.

Hey Lockguy, I just installed Rox Risers. Brake line and clutch line are too tight when steering head is turned full left or right. How did you get more clutch line and brake line?

Did you have any trouble with the throttle cables or switch gear cables?

Thanks, Mark

Exclamation

My bike is a 2011 Wee.

Wire harness on left. I removed it from the circular holder and let it come aft as required and loosely zip tied it to the circular holder.

I had no problem with the clutch cable.

Throttle cables. I loosely zip tied them at the mid section of the ignition. If they go under the ignition, they would bind on a hard right turn.

I had to replace the brake line with one 2" longer. I originally tried runing the original line behind the upper triple clamp but not enough length. I have the ROX rotated as far aft as possible without interfering with the scroud at the front of the gas tank. Bleeding the front brakes after replacing the line is a MAJOR PITA. It took me a couple days of bleeding, waiting and bleeding to get the air out but I got it done.

I am really pleased with the result.

Many thanks for the reply. I have the 05 Vee. A bit different. I'll follow your recommendations.
