    I saw a posting from Wadejesu about installing 2” Rox Risers on his TFC. He mentioned that 2” is the max possible and in fact the picture he posted appears to show very little if any slack to both clutch and brake cables. I would like to hear more from him, or anyone else who has tried this modification.
    Is there a specific model Rox for our bikes, or just a generic one that fits the diameter of our handle bar?
    TIA,
    John

    I called Rox and they recommend this riser for the 1 1/4" bars.
    Chieftain / Roadmaster / Low Rider S 2" Pivoting Bar Risers

    They said to un-clamp bars to see if enough slack is available for the electronic cable and brake/clutch lines before ordering.

    You would have to lock the wheel left and right first to see if there’s enough slack. First you have to buy the bike.

    I didn't have any trouble, had enough slack, all I did was reorient hydraulic lines just to get a tad more slack.

    So you had to take it to dealer to get heated grips enabled?
