..... I wouldn't mind the bar a little closer again just for extra comfort, I'll have to try these.  :028:

This is why I like the flexibility of the Rox risers (or similar) - I have mine set tilting at about 30 degrees towards me to bring the bars closer, which is good for both sitting and standing)

I put on the Rox 2" Pivot Risers for 1 1/8" Handlebars.1R-P2PPA  but the 1R-P2PPK, 1R-P2PPG,  1R-P2PP should also fit. 

The only cable that was a little tight was the clutch but I took it out of the wire loop at the front of the bike and then had slack. 



Here I am pulling on the cables to show the slack.  Again, the clutch is the limiting factor.

Nice riser pics - same risers as mine  :467:
Apart from cable tension (which I resolved with a bit of cable tidying & similar change to clutch cable routing, the only problem I found was a bit of interference with tank bags (due to the bars being a bit further back.

I thought that was an audible turn signal/warning .. and wondered why it only worked in one direction  :008:

Trying to find bar risers for my 2019 1200 XcX.  1-1/8" bars.  Looking for a pair that does not require cable alterations.  The bike has 536 miles and did the initial service.  Love her!  Had a Guzzi Stelvio and was a sweet ride also, when she ran:(.


I have the 2" risers on my 2020 with no issues, (see post a couple below this one) and have also had a Stelvio which I had for over 3 years. That's a long time for me to own a bike ! very comfy, characterful & surprisingly nippy. I had a sat nav indicated 141mph out of mine following an AMG E Class Merc' in Germany - fully loaded !

Here's a pick of it just after I'd fitted a Quill exhaust -

Cheers Marcos, it was a great bike and I had two epic European trips with it but... And there is always a 'but' with a Moto Guzzi, it ate brake discs. Every year it had a new set of discs & pads (under warranty to be fair) but I'm not a hard braker and it had massive engine braking anyway. As soon as it was out of warranty I waved it goodbye. Very comfy and the yardstick I compare all bike to for comfort from now on.
