Rox Risers/Scotts dampener

Can they be used together?

It takes about 2-5/8" of rise to clear the Scotts so most Rox risers won't work. No riser that replaces the upper bar clamp will work either. The Scotts mount has to replace the upper bar clamp.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

No suggestion as I'm faced with the same dilemma. A replacement bar that provides the position achieved with the ROX 2" riser would be the way to go but I've yet to find it.
If you do, let us know.

I got nuthin. The stock bars are perfect for me so I have not investigated any bar or riser options. I used to replace all my stock bars on touring bikes with Suzuki GT175 bars and the Strom bars feel similar.

There is a way. Contact Blair from SV Racing parts. This was/is exactly my dilemma, I need to use risers but also want the steering damper. This is probably the route I'll take once funds are available.

It presumably requires using the MV Risers from Germany....
But most likely cables/wiring will have to be extended.
