Rox 2inch riser users..question.

Can I install the 2 inch Rox riser without doing anything to the stock cables/wires?

I'm sure this is answered in a thread somewhere, but my search skills are failing me this morning.

And second question... anyone want to trade the Speedy's 1 inch bar riser and some cash for the 2 inch Rox risers?

I just recently went from the 1" Speedy to the 2" ROX when I put on the Seat Concepts and the existing cables and wiring was fine. It is probably the limit but have been on a couple of longs trips recently and no problems at all.

Got my Rox Risers in and installed today. Love the extra inch. It really made a surprisingly big difference.

My problem is I can't get the bolts tightened all the way because the Rox Risers block the bolt heads.

Any suggestions?

I had the Rox 2" risers on my V. See attached photo. I would guess those risers are intended for dirt bikes with their bolts above the handle bar clamps rather than recessed like on street bikes.

You just have to fiddle with it. Don't recall how I solved the problem.

I wound up having to cut off about 1/4" of the allen key (or however much fit underneath) and then used pliers on it to finish the tightening. TOTAL pain in the ass.
