I think the bars (and bike) look great. I'll have to look into Rox.

good thread, very timely for me considering moding up to some black bars this winter on my black 2012 T100 but didn't want to get too far away from stock or lean too far forward, like the looks of the black N/H M bars & I use the Nap stock Thruxton bar end mirrors now on the stock bars & I like bar end mirrors a lot on this bike, it's one of my fav mods for my bike, anybody know what bar end mirrors these are this is from the handlebar sticky thread (red/white T100 post), really like the looks of this bar with these mirrors & maybe use one of the two risers (Rox or NB) in this thread , these mirrors in the link may be just black Nap mirrors but just trying to confirm

Install

I just installed 2" Rox Risers...my only concern is that they are not on tight enough. When positioned as I like them, I cant reach two of the bottom screws to tighten them down.

Beyond that, wow, what a difference. Completely different seating position, and for my aching back, seemingly more comfortable. Only took a quick spin around the block, and I'm still relatively new to riding, but it felt like it also handled differently too.

So any suggestions on tightening those screws? Only have about 1/4" clearance between the top of the screw and the bottom of the riser. I tried to tighten down the rear most screws and yank the handlebar into position, then tighten the front screws. Not sure thats the best thing to do. Thanks all.

The install is easy if done in a specific order:

Notice that in this photo, you can easily adjust 6 of the 8 bolts once your bars are in the position you will want them:



HOWEVER: You are not going to be able to reach these bottom two:



BUT YOU WON'T HAVE TO, if you follow these steps:

1) Cover your gas tank and lay your bars on the tank.

2) Lay each of the risers in their cradle and tighten each of the four bolts UNIFORMLY as tight as you can get them. Don't worry about the position of the risers yet. You're going to move them later in Step 5.

3) Loosen ONLY the two bolts closest to the headlight. Leave the bolts closest to the tank tight. You want to loosen the forward two bolts ONLY enough so that you can move the risers with some effort by hand, but NOT so loose that the risers flop around.

4) Lay the bars in the riser cradle and bolt on the top plate ONLY TIGHT ENOUGH that the bars don't flop around under their own weight. Again, you want to be able to move them by hand.

5) Now sit on the bike and move the bars up and down, back and forth until you find a position that seems to suit you.

6) Tighten the forward two bolts on the lower cradle as tight as they were before you loosened them in step 3. Your bottom 4 bolts are now uniformly tight. No need to access the rear bolts that were giving you problems.

7) Tighten the four bolts in the top cradle and you're done.

I've been through the adjustment process a few times as I've experimented with riding in different positions. As long as you never touch the "inaccessible" bolts in the lower cradle, the six you can easily access will be all you need to adjust.

Hope this helps,
Hilo
