Risers Rock

Installed bar risers (Rox) on the Wee and what a difference they make IMO. I have always liked the up and back position of my KLR, now the Wee is similar but still more compact.

Any trouble installing?

djb,
I haven't heard much about the Rox risers. Did you have any trouble installing them? Also, where did you order from.
Thanks,
Bob

No trouble at all to install. Ordered direct from Rox http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...?subcat_id=268
The bar position I like the best made the brake hose seem a little tight IMO but I'm kinda picky. I moved the brake hose from in front of the triple clamps to behind the triple clamps. Hope this helps. Here's a little more info.

Thank you for your post and info on the risers. I just ordered a set.

I bought my bike last week and on the 120 mile ride home I knew I needed some risers for a better seating position.

My new risers should be here in 3 days 8)

Thanks!

I really love the looks of those Rox risers 8)
I just put on a set of GenMar risers and I love the difference it made. The 1' up and 1 3/8" back position feels a lot more comfortable. It took about 20 min to install. Most of that was spent fiddling with the control and brake lines. The brake line will need a bit more slack to make me feel good though.
