The Handlebar Risers Install Thread
May 08, 2014 - 3:31 PM - by Lost Rider
Here's a thread to share what risers can be used on the NineT, install photos and info appreciated.

After getting a custom Bill Mayer seat which raises me up a little, risers were very much needed for a comfortable riding position for me.

I installed these ROX risers, part # 1R-P2PPA giving me an adjustable combined 2" lift and push back.
The install was straightforward and the cables seem to be long enough without needed custom lines made. Though I do have my hand levers moved towards the middle about an inch to make the pulling on the levers good for me.
The clutch line was tighter than the brake line, to get a little more length I took it out of the clip by my foot on the rear of the engine, pictured below.

I've very happy with the riding position now, between the fairing, seat and risers the ninet fits me like a glove and is ready for long rides.

Where I gained the extra slack.

BMW R NineT Owner's Award Winning Reviews

billdacat @billdacat

Saanich, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

First impression: WOW this looks even much better than the pictures I had seen.

Ergonomics: Well I'm six foot and easily 250 pounds but this bike fits me great. After adjusting the rear suspension and mirrors everything else just fits.

Ride & Handling: I am an old, conservative and careful rider so this bike exceeds my demands. I find it very confortable and forgiving even on the twist rough roads around home.

Quality: I'm impressed with the fit and finish. This bike attracts gawkers like nothing else I've ever owned and the comments most often heard are how well this bike is put together.

Pros & Cons: I find this bike the "funnest" bike I've ever owned and I've had dozens since my first in 1969. As for Cons: Waiting since November 2013 (the dealer could not release the bike until after March 21st. 2014). The price is high but so is the rarity and quality of this machine. I expect factory and after market accessories to also be high in cost too.

Recommendation: There may not be much hope for unspoken for 2014 R nineT's left at dealerships but I would tell anyone who likes the idea of owning one don't delay but get their name on the list right away. My bike was shown to prospective buyers and helped sell the remaining two that my dealer will receive this year.

I fell in love when I first saw the R9T in October last year. I've never done such a thing, but I called up my local dealer and put a deposit down straight away.

I've been following this forum ever since, although I only signed up recently. I read from afar as other member started getting their bikes,... [Read More]
