Thanks.

That's true with the 2" (or taller) *PIVOTING* Rox Risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...parts_id=10081 - and you *DO* have to get longer hydraulic hoses, but not throttle cables.

But not with the Offset Block ones I posted previously. I made no cable, hydraulic hose, or wiring changes to fit them to my bike, and have ridden that way for over 20,000 miles with them installed.

BTW, please note that the 1.75" *PIVOTING* risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...parts_id=10037 - will *NOT* work either, but for different reasons. With them there is not enough room between Rox's upper clamp and the pivot bar to all the OEM Yamaha upper bar clamps to fit in there.

Hope this helps!
