    Rox Anti-Vibration Risers for 2012 F650GS ABS; Installation Help Requested

    I plan to install Rox Anti-vibration risers to move the handlebars about 2 inches back/up. I know I need to replace the front brake line and re-route the throttle, clutch, and associated lines behind the triple tree. Two questions: (1) How much longer do I need the front brake line? I assume I need a 2 inch longer line since the risers can move the handlebars by 2 inches. Any experience or thoughts? (2) What options are there for moving the lines behind the triple tree? Any experiences with moving these lines? Many thanks.

    Just order the one from ROX..all the figuring is done..

    Dependent on where you place your bars, you may need to add the clutch cable as well..I did on my wife's 650...I can't swear to it..I don't remember, but I think it is OEM from an F800 ST??? Sounds right..Dollars to donuts your dealer knows which it is...everyone buys it when installing the ROX..

    I installed the Rox 2" anti-vibration risers and now have the answers to my original questions. I purchased a 3" longer front brake line. Installation was easy, but 3" is longer than necessary. A 2" longer front brake line would be more than enough; a 1.5" longer line would likely suffice. Re-routing the throttle, clutch and associated electrical lines behind the triple tree was also easy; simply loosen three bolts on the left fork leg, compress the leg about 1-2" and simply pull the lines through the gap. Push the leg back up until it touches the positioning wire and torgue the three bolts. The hardest item was to install the risers as they block access to one or both of the two torx bolts on the BMW handlebar clamps--depending on the angle you want for the Rox risers.
