New Rox Barback Riser for ST
« on: April 25, 2017, 05:35:30 pm »
Has anyone seen this yet?  I'm wondering if it's short enough to eliminate the need for the extenders for the hoses/cables.  They look to be new (shipping in Q2) and the only site showing them so far is Altrider...

I doubt if this will fit a gen2, our stock clamps are not parallel to each other.

So these won't work ?

Any suggestion to get the bars back a bit ?

The altrider website shows them as a specific fit for our ST, but includes this disclaimer:

"Always check and confirm that your machine has adequate cable and brake line length before installing handlebar risers."

So apparently haven't been tested on our ST's yet.  Who wants to be first?
I think a bit of skulduggery would do you good, take your mind off this "pain" business.

They don’t fit. I’m sending a set back.

Helibars makes a nice bar back riser that fits the gen2 bikes. I have one on mine.

Home Depot now sells risers. See the 18" here.

All you need is to substitute 18" longer bolts and cables. ;D

Looks like a quality set up....includes a hose extension.

I managed to get enough slack with my bike that I didn't require the extension, but I have it put away just in case something develops.
