    Problem A
    - The stock bolt (part 5) has almost no shoulder that doesn't have thread. The inner thread is flush with the end of the bar. I also think the bar weight is shorter than the R1200

    Pictures of the two bolts and sizes...

    A shorter bolt will not work. took 3/4" off. Still no go!

    Throttle lock works wonder however!

    and so do the risers! 1-1/8" 2" rise. Work well. No Snagging the front brake cable. Might need to be longer gonna test it and see.

    Are my eyes correct and you are using two sets of bar risers at the same time? I'm no engineer but that looks sketch to me!

    He's not using two bar risers. He's only using the Rox risers clamped into the stock bar clamps. That's how the Rox risers work. Many are using the Rox risers with good luck and no twisting.

    They will twist. The independent rubber mounts and the extra height of the Rox risers aren't a very sturdy combo. That said, they are very easy to twist back.

    Does the 2" rox risers work with Bikes that have ABS (and not needing to replace brake lines)? I need something. Would love to go 2", but I thought I read 3/4" was the max if you have ABS?

    I know my brake cables seem so long stock that they hit the HID headlight wires that I brought out straight through the back of the headlight access cover. A bar riser would fix this problem as well :)

    Yes, the 1 3/4" Rox Riser appears to be special made for the F8. I have a brand new set (one week old) that I will sell you at a discount. They are too tall for me.

    Fit just fine on my ABS model, with stock cables (close to limit, but ok). I did have to move my levers inward a bit. Being able to move the bars a bit closer to me (with the pivot) was very nice. I'm 5' 9", and this seem better suited to a 6'+ rider.

    I switched to the TT 20mm riser posts. Came in last night. That's better for me.

    Send me a PM if you're interested in purchasing my Rox (at a discount). Story of my life....buy high, sell low. :deal

    Installing the Rox appears tricky, until you figure it out. You have to put your original top clamps on loosly. Then, slide the Rox in from the side, and cinch it down strategically. Not hard, when the light bulb goes on.

    HF :thumbup

    p.s. Cycras look great! I love my Cycras on my WRR....and was wishing I could put some on my F8. Currently have the plastic TT's. This will stay on my Bucket List. Thanks!

    I went with 2" because I knew I'd be sliding them more forward. (less cable pull) the TT rises just pick them up straight back at you... with the rox I can pick them vertically straight up
