BMW has been known to change things mid-year on us. It used to surprise us when our customers called with a fitment issue. We have come to realize that the guys on the other side of the pond often find new and more interesting ways to do the things they are already doing. Rather than wait for a new model year they enact the change on the fly.

All of that said - the tank ring will be exactly the same on the 2014.

Those are for 1.125" bars and the LC has 1.25" I believe.

Yep; I had to return my Rox because they were 1 1/8 and not the 1 1/4. Apparently the larger diameter risers are in the works, but I went with W-

The wunderlich also bring the bars further back. That didn't cause any problems when standing up?

Why would that be a problem? Ain't that preferable actually?

I got the W- that are 25mmm or 1" risers. They do not thrust the bars as far back ... mostly just rise. Some rear movement, but only because the original bracket / clamp is at an angle on the triple clamp. Great riding position (for me) without any concern for rerouting or stress on cables or hoses. I added the quick adjust levers from W-; they also work great for me to change relative hand position / riding position as my shoulders / hands get fatigued. As with the risers...sometimes just a small "relocation" makes a huge difference in comfort. The QA seem to work hand in hand with the risers... for $45, they are a bargain. The risers were IIRC $80.

Because when I am standing I will have the handle bars "in my lap" so to speak and doesn't offer much of stability when your bouncing around trail.
