    Has anyone ever used the ROX risers facing in a rearward direction?

    My front frame is all welded and the bike is partly assembled and on the wheel. I am fitting a tank and playing with seats and I keep getting frustrated with how high and far forward the bars are.

    I realize that rolling the risers 90* or so will affect steering a bit in the way the bars arch to turn, but i do not see any other option other than custom fabing up a new triple tree or at least a new bar clamp system on a billet clamp.

    {sorry if you are not aware of what bike this is...I need to get a thread started with pics...96 R1100RT with a KYB fork conversion and 21" front wheel}

    I am not entirely clear as to what you are asking.

    AFAIK there is no reverse. Yes you can pull them back towards you with no ill effect (as long as there is clearance on the tank), and in fact this is what some (shorter) riders use them for.

    Thanks, That is what I was asking. I have only seen them mounted as risers in an up ward angle, or maybe slightly rearward angled.
    I need to pull them back as far as possible and not raise the bars, even lower the bars.

    I may have not worded it clearly. Sorry.

    I just wanted to make sure there was not something in the instructions or directions that they could not be used past a certain angle rearward or forward maybe because of slippage or cracking or something.

    I should have updated. I did buy a pair online and fit them pulled all the way back and it fixed my handle bar fit issue.

    Build thread and pics to come
