Talking The Handlebar Risers Thread

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.

Nice, but did I miss a Bill Mayer custom seat post?

I got cutoff to board a plane before I could post it, you'll see a BMS saddle thread at my next layover.

They look like a solid and well made product. The finish is very nice.
I can appreciate that you can fine tune the position by rotating the bottom as well as the position of the handlebar.

My one not-like is the doubledecker look of those on top of the original clamping bridge. I think that looks too cluttered.
I am hoping for something simpler like this pictured Wunderlich product, but with some mounting up and back. I'll keep looking . . .

Manly, hectic, ample and stylish, the warbling R nineT is total harmony with its plumage.
The dual exhaust creaks every blip ... hearing delight.

True, maybe Verholen will make some backs for the nineT, we had them on our f800r, looked oem and brought the bars up and back. Down side is they were $300.

My ROX are pretty hidden between my fairing, gps and tank box though.
Comfort over form for me.

Hey Lost Rider- When you moved over the Clutch Lever etc------ did you need to do that for cable play? or just did it for the feel of the clutch lever?

Yes they are the same ones I have pictured in my post above.
I like the simple design, but would like some reach back as well, not just up.
