Looking for pullback Risers for my XT. I BELIEVE the bars on the XT (I’ll measure at lunch) are 28mm. Any thoughts on brands and installing precautions?

I'd be interested in this as well. Picked my bike up two days ago, and on the long ride home, it became apparent that the handlebars are just a bit too far forward for my comfort. ..... That is what these are for right?.... I'm a bit new to this sort of stuff.

Yes, that's what they are for. I tried adjusting the bars down, so they come back a little further, but then the sir too low, and still not far enough back. Rox Risers are in my future.

Rox Risers are great.

I have been considering adding some low cost ($26) one inch handle bar risers to our site, but the ROX risers give a lot of adjust-ability both up and back. We have 2" longer brake top lines so you don't need to replace the entire brake line set.

The clutch cable is usually long enough to not need replacing when moving 2" or less.

For the 2018 1000, it looks like the hoses you sell are complete replacement. I did not notice a 2” extension to add on to existing brake lines.

Thanks for the responses guys.

Has anyone installed these yet on the '18 Vee 1000 XTs? The Rox website fitment page suggests that these should install with minor adjustments - adjusting cable runs / cutting zip ties / removing cable clamps. Anyone know how accurate their claims are?

From what I have read from the experience of others, you do need to move cables behind the top triple clamp. Even so, there were still issues of cables and hoses being tight at full lock. The best solution I have seen is the replacement kit from adventure tech that has the hoses 50mm longer to account for risers, such as Rox. That solution will cost about $200 US dollars, plus the cost of the Rox risers, plus labour if you do not have the patience or knowledge or desire to learn the knowledge,to do the job yourself. This can for some, turn into a $1000 purchase.


EDIT: I just finished routing the cables behind the triple tree. No real issues of stretching hoses, except the front brake line at full right lock seems to have a little more stress then I really like. It will be okay, but I would prefer there was a bit more slack. Was going to leave the block from the right side (where the front brake line transitions to a hardline in a block that is bolted to the bike neck), and leave it lose, but thought it wasn't a great idea.
