Bar Risers/Motowerk Peg Lower

I just installed my Rox Risers and my Motowerk Peg Lower's! They're great. Installation was easy and they feel like they will change my riding stance quite a bit. I was going for the straighter sitting position and I think I have it. Both products are machined perfect.

These are the set I'd get. With this set, you can use them with the stock bars & if you ever decide to upgrade the bars to a 1 1/8 bar (like Protapers), you can.

I got the risers @ http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...?subcat_id=268

I purchased the 2" Risers with the option to either use 7/8" or 1 1/8" bars if I choose in the future. Also they are the Anti-Vibration model. They are adjustable as well so I can increase or decrease the amount of vibration dampening!

The peg lowering blocks were @ http://motowerk.com/default.aspx

I like them as well, easy to install but I think I'll go to a bolt supply and change the Bolts to some style of flush hex head bolt. Give them a little more finished look. Great product as well!

We have 2 feet of snow so I can't try them yet but as soon as I can I'll let you know.

Good input...Anti-vibe I think is useful with this buzzy beast. Will order.

Thumbs up

I used Speedy's ( Motowerk) peg lowerer's...Super easy install...Didn't have to adjust either the rear brake( it was adjusted to low from factory, dealer) or shift...You can thank my size 14 clodhoppers for that benefit...

If I new what I was doing, I wouldn't still be working

erda. I hope a Chinook is on the way, I'm running out of room to shovel snow! Well December was a right off for a ride, I'm hoping January will be in for it. I put on 2,300 km's in November just running around here and short day trips getting used to the bike!

Hey Bear, what pro-tapers are most folks using (bend and rise wise?) with the Rox-Risers?

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.

I think someone here on this forum is using the protaper ATV bars, but I'm not sure if he's using them with the risers. I don't know what model/bend either...

My question is, how much vibration relief is there. I was looking at them last night and am seriously contemplating them...if the vibration relief is there.

I won't be able to try the bike until spring due to all the snow and ice. I've talked to guys with dirt bikes and they say there is quite a difference. I figured for the $40 more why not give them a try and if I want to use them on another bike later on then I have them.

Been thinking...

bout getting some risers, I feel like my bars are low causing excess weight to be put on my wrists/hands on long rides, I can really feel it when I have a passenger and I have just a little bit extra weight sliding against me during breaking...
So I'm thinking of going with the ROX anti-vibe Risers... the same as a couple other guys on here... just they are expensive! Happytrails has em cheaper than anyone else at 135...
and here's a review of them I found over on KLR World.

I have had the chance to try them and the positioning and amount of different positions avaliable are neverending and they seem great. That Anti-Vib option of these risers seems to help. I have adjusted the anti-vib settings a few different way and it seems to help with them set tighter than looser. The quality is 2nd to none and I'm very pleased with them.
