View Full Version : 2 inch risers work on Uly?

10-03-2011, 12:50 PM
Hello, I was investigating the aftermarket riser kit from Twisted Throttle for my '09 UlyXT. I recently added the taller saddle and really feel the need to raise the handlebars. The Twisted Throttle solution raises and rakes the bars 2". Has anyone tried this? I'm concerned I might be getting into major expense replacing cables.

I did something similar with Renthal bars (higher than the moto-x style) and a 1" spacer. The net effect was the same as a 2" rise and 1 1/2" pull back. It worked fine on my STT.

I put on the Rox Risers and pretty happy with them. No cable replacment needed.

Rox risers are good stuff. Have them on my KTM 990 Adventure. Even when eating **** hard, they didn't rotate out of place.

rdkingryder, would that be the Rox 2" X 7/8" pivoting riser PN 3R-P2SSM? And did that fit on a Uly without new cables?

I have the Uly specific Rox risers on my XT and they made all the difference in riding position. No cable changes needed on my set up.

with anything taller than a 1in. rise i'm pretty sure you will have to do something with the cables (lengthen them). you can also try precision engineering, i have purchased 1in. risers and also the fat bar risers (which i'm currently using) from them. great quality, workmanship and price. check them out.

The only thing I had to do with the ROX 2" risers was take the clamp off the brake cable.

I didn't have to take the clamp off but there is no play left, that's for sure. I may do that anyway. I also installed the Madstad brackets, windshield and flyscreen and should have unclamped the cable. I may return the Madstad stuff as it makes me really mad the way everything flexes and rattles at idle. But that's a subject for another topic.

Sorry, computer crashed awhile back. Still trying to recover. I removed the clamp and cable tied to the fork. Been like that for years. LOL! I'll get to it someday. The PE wasn't enough for me, short arms you see.

where did you get the rox risers?

Got mine from roxspeedfx.com. It was a nice piece of machined and anodized aluminum and was very easy to install.

Rox risers and remove the brake hose bracket does the trick and it makes a big difference in your arms.

I put a set of Heli bars on my buell and uped the handle bar hieght around 7"'s, It took me right around 35 min and they look great. The bars are the same as what is shown for the Honda St 1100 https://helibars.com/product/honda-st1100-multi-adjustable-handlebars
I did not need to extend any cabels, all i had to do was loosen the brake line brackets and slide the line a little. If anybody wants pics i could send them. What a difference they made.

I fitted 2" Rox Risers, as previously said, just the top brake like bracket needs to be removed.

Precision Engineering also do budget 2.5" risers.
