these are 2 " pivoting Roxspeedfx risers. i do like VERY much. being 6'5" tall, standing up riding is very comfy now. highly recomend. i dont know about cables, but when i installed my fcr 41 it came with a set of motion pro cables, it is tight, but fits great with no throttle issues.

A friend of mine picked me up a set when he was in the States.
I have the 3 1/2 inch Rox Pivoting Handlebar Risers. I wanted to not only heighten the bars, but move them forward.

The cables are not long enough, so I could not fit them. I need to get longer cables which have to be custom made. One of the jobs I have on hold until I have some free time. I should have got the 2 inchers.

The raisers themselves are very well made indeed, I don't think you will be disappointed.

It sure is. I'm thinking also if I break a custom clutch cable for example, can't just pop down to the local bike shop and buy another one.

I have 2" Rox Speed FX Risers on my '06 650L. Love them. Installed in 10 minutes. No issues with cable lenghths, flex, vibration, etc. A great product. Might be the best $80 I have ever spent on a bike. Not the best looking solution but certainly gets the job done - especially if money and ease of installation are a concern. :thumbsup: :busted:

I'm 6'2" and pleased with the anti-vibe risers. They go from 7/8 to 1 1/8 which gives you the use of the 1 1/8 bars. I also have a Clarke tank, and they work for me. I haven't rode them hard yet, but will test these in the spring. The only cable issue I had was the clutch cable. I went with the Renthal Fatbar high bend. 2" risers with stock or normal or low bends would seem to work. I chose a no crossbar setup because my GPS mount was a problem. My wife just bought me a new waterproof Garmin I wanted and already fabbed up a mount where the handelbar clamp is. This seems to be a good place to securely mount it, and protect it in crashes. You can't pay too much for comfort!!!

Damn Rox makes some smooth looking stuff. I love mine, they're not anti-vibe though. The L has vibes?

I ordered a set of the 2" Rox Risers today. Do you end up snipping the black zip ties that hold the cables to the handlebars with the stock set-up?

Look close those stock black ties are reusable.

My stock cable ties stayed right where they were. Installed the things in ten minutes with one hand practically. I got a phone call just as I was getting started and wasn't able to end the conversation. No simpler solution to raising your 650L's bars. They are also adjustable from front to rear by just tilting them.
