2018 Tiger 800 risers help

Any 2018 Tiger 800 owners out there who have fitted Rox 2" risers? I took a crack at it last summer but I could not figure out a solution. I have virtually no free play in my cables and think I will need to do some serious rerouting, if even possible to make up enough length. I can barely rotate the bars out of the stock riser itself with cables as they are. I figured I'd take another look now that its the middle of winter. Any insight is appreciated. It is an XCX model.

Hmmm.. I wonder if something changed between my 2016 XCx and your 2018? I have both the 2" Roxx risers AND the Tusk 15mm risers installed. I rerouted my clutch cable and have j..u..s..t enough lock/lock range.

Yeah or maybe mine just has abnormally short cables from the factory. I had read other peoples experiences regarding cable length and all sounded pretty straight forward. Maybe I am in a unique situation. That looks like a good set up you've got. Had you planned on combining risers from the start or found you needed additional height after only installing one of them?

I bought Helibars risers for my tiger, 1 1/4" rise and 1 1/4" back and not cable tightness. Very clean installation

I just wanted a bit more height after the fact.

I had a set of the Rox 2" adjustable risers (like above) While standing in semi rough section they spun forward in the clamp. I know the handlebars can do the same thing but with the added leverage it seems more likely to happen. Anyone else had this happen? It's a bit scary when it did. Clamp them tight if you use them!

So to close this out...I ordered a replacement OEM clutch cable. It was noticeably longer than the one that was installed on my bike so it seems I just had a seemingly shorter than normal cable. With the new cable installed I had no issues installing the risers.

2" ROX move it ~1.45" up and ~1.45" back if at 45 degree angle. This is my plan.

If new, call dealer and tell them your bike did not have the correct cable. see if they are a good dealer or not......

doje0206. Do you have the part number for the longer clutch cable? I'm trying to put 2" Rox risers on my 2018 Tiger 800 XRX and the clutch cable seems way too short. I'm afraid if I just order another one, I'll end up with two short ones.
