  1. Rox 2inch risers - help!

    DL650A - 2017+
    I realize there's a bunch of posts about this product, and I've gone through them. But they all seem to be about older models. I have the 2019 DL650XT and I am wondering if the Rox 2inch pivoting risers work on it WITHOUT needing new cables. What is the simplest way to install them, rerouting...
