Riser Bars/Rox Etc Explorer XRT 1200
« on: July 16, 2016, 01:06:12 PM »
Hi,

Anyone fitted, or recommend any Riser Bars for a 2016 XRT Explorer ? I like the look of the Rox Risers, but unsure if they are a straight fit etc.

There are some other brands that lift the bars by 20mm, but wonder if this is enough.

Any input or photo's greatly appreciated

Frank.

Frank,

I have Rox risers (part # 1r-p2ppa) on order, they should arrive tomorrow.
I'll let you know once I've fitted them to my XRx (low).

I had my pivoting anti-vibration 2" rise Rox risers transferred from my 2014 TEX to my new XRX - no problem.

Triumph didn't fundamentally change the TEX-suspension upgrades and gas tank logos and a new screen-so anything that fits earlier models should fit the newer ones. I fitted Rox on mine and they're great

I bought these from fleabay last year...  An absolute Knockoff of the Rox...Most probably from the 'Same Factory' but didn't get the to the "Branding Boxing" stage.... like most things from C....    but, alas, unavailable now... try searching for 28mm Riser in the Interwebby thingy..
Anyone can make it complicated..... Its pure Genius to make it Simple....

Standard 2" version for 1-1/8" bars. Piece of cake install.

If I may ask a rookie question...

Any disadvantages to having bar risers?  Handling or stability-wise?  I realize it ever so slightly changes the bike's center of gravity (based on new sitting/standing body positions) and somewhat altered steering arm characteristics... any considerable impacts to ride quality, especially offroad?

Thanks for the photo,

Did it require any cable Re-Routing etc ?

What's your overall verdict on them please.

Mostly for rider comfort. I used to think it was just for us taller folks, but there's a lot of shorties on here that like them too. I've never noticed any different handling characteristics and I've used them on several bikes in the past. Of course I'm not a very technical rider. Your racers may tell you a different story. As you mentioned there's also the standing position advantage. I ride quite a bit of gravel & like to stand where it's unusually soft or deep. In those places I wish I had 6" risers instead of 2"... :169:
